Lending a Hand!

Many Furman students value taking the time to help others and give back to the community. Whether this is through Greek Life philanthropies, the Heller Service Corps, or other miscellaneous service projects, students can always find ways to have fun while serving others! Recently, my sorority had our annual spring philanthropy event called Triple Play. [...]

So you think you can stroll?

Furman fraternities and sororities are all very passionate about their philanthropies! Last night Alpha Kappa Alpha, a historically black sorority on campus, hosted an event called  ”So you think you can stroll?” to raise money for their philanthropy! The money raised goes towards a scholarship for a local high school student. Many of the other fraternities and sororities on campus [...]

Sorority Initiation and Formal

I hope that everyone is enjoying time with friends and family for Easter weekend! Furman students have a long weekend, and we do not have any classes on Friday or Monday. I am spending my break in Seabrook Island with family friends. It has been an unusually chilly winter/spring across the state, but today I [...]

Why Furman?

Spring break is already over, and as many of the other freshman bloggers have mentioned, it is hard to believe that the school year is in the final stretch! There are only two more weeks until Easter break and then four weeks until exams when we return from Easter break. Before I know it, May [...]

A weekend with my sister!

This weekend my younger sister Maggie came to visit Furman over her long President’s Day weekend! The last time she was on campus was when I moved in in August. Since I moved in early to go on a pre-orientation sea kayaking trip, Maggie was not able to meet my roommate or any of the other [...]

We are family!

Friday was an exciting night after an exciting week. In my last post I talked about big/little reveal week for my sorority. On Friday night, we had our big/little reveal ceremony, and I got to meet the older girls who are in my tri delt “family.” At the beginning of the week, I thought I [...]

Greek Week!

This week is full of fun activities sponsored by the Greek community! This is an especially exciting week for the tri delta pledge class because it is big/little reveal week. Each of the pledges is assigned a sophomore to serve as her sponsor/mentor (a.k.a. “big”). Every morning this week, the members of my tri delta [...]

Proud to be a ΔΔΔ!

After two weeks of sorority rush, I am happy to have joined the delta delta delta pledge class. I have enjoyed going through sorority recruitment at Furman, and I have had the opportunity to meet women from all of the different sororities on campus. Furman does delayed recruitment (everyone rushes second semester), which has given [...]

Back in the swing of things!

After a relaxing three weeks of winter vacation, many holiday parties, and enjoying time at home, I am happy to be back at Furman. I think this is the first year when I have not been dreading going back to school after winter break. I was excited to make the drive from Ohio back to [...]
