Top Ways to Fundraise for Your Sorority

Greek life is one of the most memorable parts of going to college. As those who are part of a sorority know, it’s much different from what may be portrayed in movies or on television. Sororities are often devoted to different nonprofits and other organizations who, in turn, are devoted to making the lives of others better.

In April, campuses across the nation seem to grow eerily silent and empty. Students are now spending every moment of free time in the library or in their dorms working on that paper worth half their grade, or trying to remember those tiny anecdotes their professors promised would be on the exam at the beginning of the semester.

When every class is demanding you study 20 hours a day to pass the exam, sometimes the best thing to do is cry it out. Let out all the stress and anger, clearing your head to actually prepare. Go ahead, let those tears flow. We can wait.

3 Ways to Support Your Local Team

Though the weather may not show it yet, summer is officially here, which means it’s time for soccer, baseball, lacrosse, and all the other summer sports. For middle schoolers and high schoolers, these extracurriculars offer something to do during their time away from the classroom. It’s also the time for those athletes who don’t play football to shine. And for local amateur or semi-professional teams, it’s a venue for adults to live out their passion. Whatever the team, it’s always fun to go to the field and cheer them on.
