I'm BACK!!!!!






It's been a long time since I last blogged about Black Greek Life. So many things have changed in my life. I have a new job, changed my focused on school, (I am working on a Doctorate in Education with emphasis on Leadership), and I just became active in TWO other organizations that I pledged in college: Sigma Alpha Iota, and Alpha Phi Omega. I am also the Corresponding Secretary for my Delta Chapter. Now that things have settled down a bit, I am able to blog a little more. (Oh, and also for those that know me personally, I am also a little bit of a fashionista, so I am starting a fashion blog  if you are interested in following me on that, leave me a comment below). I LOVE shoes, and I have shoes GALLORE, (more I stopped counting after 125.

So it's fall semester, and I for those who are interested in pledging, this is the PERFECT opportunity for you to get your face AND name out there. As I stated in the past, the best way to do this is attending ALL Greek events if possible, becoming involved in other organizations. (Student Government, Black Student Union, Gospel Choir, etc.) When people find out you are interested in joining an organization, they will sometimes scrutinize your every move. How do you act on campus? Are you one of those females who like to get "turned up" at parties? Are you messy? How do you dance at Union Parties or parties off campus?  This will be taking into consideration when you are applying for membership. You want to treat applying for membership, as if you are applying for a job.

When I pledged Delta, over 14 years ago, we didn't have myspace, facebook, twitter, etc. I never had to worry about my postings, or tagged pictures coming back to haunt me. Case in point, you want to make sure you are cognoscente on what post on social media, or else it very well could come back to haunt you. This isn't just for pledging, but for your future as well. I personally have several social media accounts, and I would NEVER post my personal business out there for the world to see. I think its best that you don't either.


For those of you that are going through membership intake right now, CONGRATS, and I can't wait to see you on the other side. For those of you that aspiring to become Greek in the near future, GOOD LUCK TO YOU! I hope to post more on this blog now that I my life have slowed down a bit. I love the fact that we are on fall break right now, so this week I will blogging a little more, while working on school work.

  1. I would really like to know your thoughts on the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, inc. MIP moratorium, or moratoriums in general, and what does it mean for those that are interested in membership (besides the obvious).

    Thanks

  2. I really want to join Delta Sigma Theta but due to the current MIP I may never have the chance. The chapter at my school had a SPR 13 line, then they all graduated last May. Now the chapter is inactive and there is talk of the chapter "dying out". If you were me what would you do?

  7. Hello...I recently received my BA online while working full time. I was looking coward to the opportunity to possibly join a graduate chapter. However I am finding that the chapters in my area are not holding any new member intake. Any suggestions?

    1. There is a moratorium on all Delta chapters. No intake at this time. Hopefully it will be lifted this summer. Check their national website for updates. Continue to use this time to attend Delta events, get to know them now so that when intake does occur, you may be better prepared & acquainted with them. Good luck!
