What Else????

What's the number one question I receive from people who are interesting in pledging a BGLO? To sum it up, it all starts off with "What Else?" Honestly, I cannot answer this question. As I have said time and time again, you need to treat joining a BGLO the same way as applying for a job position. Like a job position, you can meet the requirements, have the work history, have impeccable references/referrals, and still not land the job. This works the same way when applying for membership in a BGLO as well. The only differences, if you are trying to join as an undergrad, the members can also consider your actions on your college campus and how you carry yourself on or around campus, facebook page/posts, pictures, parties, etc.....

 I have said this over and over again and can't say it enough. Do You want to be a part of the best? (And by best I mean AKA, Delta, Zeta, SGRho) Then you need to BE the best! What do I consider the best? High GPA, continuous community service, someone in leadership roles, making an impact in your community (Alumni/Alumnae Level) or college campus (Undergraduate Level).


  1. I am very, VERY thankful for this blog! I have begun to prepare for my very first interest meeting (GPA, community service, leadership roles). My only only concern is I didn't really make as big as an impact on the current chapter members during their "week" as I felt I could GPA, community service, and leadership roles are all spectacular, however. Should I be worried? Again, thanks so much for creating this blog and I would love to talk to you more about my future endeavors.

  2. Try to get to know the members in the chapter of the organization that you are interesting in. Make sure they remember you when you attend their programs.
