Have you just gone through recruitment?
Are you nervous about picking a big or little?
We feel you –
That’s why we wanted to give you some tips on finding your perfect sorority big/little match.
It’s about that time; recruitment is over and the search is on for bigs and littles!
You’re either one of two types of girls –
You may have already found your “rush crush” or known a girl prior to them joining your house.
For you all, the choice is easy.
You never found a rush crush. You’re nervous you won’t find the perfect girl!
Don’t fret ladies!
There are plenty of options for bigs and littles.
I promise you that you’ll find someone that can be your partner in crime, confidante, and bestie.
Tip #1: Find a Sorority Big/Little You Can Depend On
You want to find a sister who you know will be there for you in good times and bad.
The one who will go with you to get ice cream at midnight, and stay in with you to watch Netflix instead of going out.
In fact –
She’s down for anything!
Get you someone you can depend on.
Every girl wants to find a big/little that they can count on and look up to.
Tip #2: Find a Big/Little Perfect Match
I know; it sounds like dating, right?
Your big/little should be someone that you have lots in common with.
And you’ll have things to learn from each other.
For example –
Bigs can teach littles the ways of college and sorority life – how to balance your time, what food is good on campus, what teachers are the best etc.
Littles can teach bigs new trends, what she likes, etc.
Find someone that you can have a lot of fun with, too (duh).
Tip #3: Make Sure Your Little Fits In With The Fam
Obviously, the prospective little should love the family they would be joining.
There will be lots of family gatherings, group texts, etc. so you want to make sure you love everyone involved!
For bigs, you should be certain that your little prospect will fit in with the rest of the fam.
TIP: If you want to get the most out of your big/little hunt, get to know all the girls instead of picking out just one.
The new pledge class will get really excited that an older girl sincerely wants to get to know each one of them.
Who knows, you may find another little and want to take them both as twins!
This can be an expensive undertaking (big/little baskets and gifts, anyone?), but well worth it when you find two girls that you love.
It makes your family expand more than you had expected, which is so fun!
Truth is, you will find the perfect sorority big/little for you.
Bigs, teach your new little the ways of college; balancing school, social life and everything else in between.
And shower her with gifts (duh).
Littles, learn from your new sisters and embrace the sorority life!
