Olivia Bush, Sorority interview question and answers for Carly and Brittany:
1. How do you balance your time between school and sorority events?
In order to stay in a sorority, you have to maintain a 2.5 gpa, and you earn points for earning A’s and B’s and for going to the library to study. There is a scholarship chair in the sorority which is just in charge of making sure every ones grades are up to par. So it is pretty easy because we mostly know that we have to get are homework done and that our grades come first in order to actively participate.
2. How do you become more involved in your sorority?
Mostly just going to everything and being really involved. Even if you don’t know someone that well text or dm them asking if they want to go to lunch. Go to events and activities and actively participate.
3. How much time commitment is a sorority?
There are mandatory meetings once a week that are normally an hour, and then there are volunteer events, fun activities and socials. I would say around five hours a week.

Questions by Ellie Kuhnle
What are team building activities you do in the sorority?
-on bid day we get all social medias and follow everyone . Before social media was big, we’d do cross over the line, where people cross over the line with statements they relate to. Each assignment is fulfilled with someone knew, so you get to know everyone!
What is your favorite activity to do with your sisters?
-a lot of sister hood events, Brittany is sister chair, she sets up event for everyone. Activities like Zumba, pumpkin picking, bowling, & various social events. Ice Cream at the house is common and annual, a movie night is in the planning process. Sisters go out to lunch together and act like “normal friends,” and during finals they all study at the library together.
Have you gained confidence from becoming a sister? If so, how?
-YES! “I’ve seen such a personality difference in myself...” (Brittany) “Almost impossible not to change” (Brittany) Carly plans special events, and Greek weekend (annual) “getting people to come to special events has given me confidence” (Carly) “You have to be outgoing, you have to ask for things” (Brittany) a little weird at first, similar to a job, weekly meetings, etc. positions can last from semesters long to years long.
