Big/Little Bonding

Two of the most amazing days of your sorority life are the day you get your Big and the day you get your Little. The bond between Big and Little is the definition of sisterhood. However, each big/little relationship is different. You can’t compare your relationship that of others in the sorority, but at the end of the day, your relationship is still one of love. When you first get your big/little, its important to establish this bond.

1. Go out for Dinner/Lunch/Whatever
Go out for a meal together as soon as possible. Whether its dinner or lunch or even breakfast, this is a great time to get to know each other. Pick either your or their favorite restaurant or try a restaurant neither of you have been to. If a restaurant is out of your budget, a date at the dining hall is just as great. Better yet, cook a meal together! Find a delicious recipe on Pinterest and cook up a storm in the kitchen. Make sure you blast some cool tunes while you do it.

2. Have a Movie Night
Spend a night in with a favorite movie. Let her pick or you can pick together. Maybe you both have a favorite movie, genre or actor. Wear your coziest pajamas and make sure to provide a ton of snacks. Better yet, make it a movie marathon. Each of you bring your favorite movie and your favorite snack and prepare for a long night of laughing, snacking, and bonding.

3. Craft a ton for each other!
Crafts are basically sorority code for “I love you”. Make her a paddle, a picture frame, or a pin box. Pinterest is a great source for a ton of easy and cheap sorority crafts that your little or big will love. Do the crafts in the sorority colors, your family colors, or their favorite colors.

4. Get Matching Big and Little Shirts
As we all know in Sorority world, nothing is true until you put it on a t-shirt. We have some great single order big/little shirts that would be perfect for the occasion and they come in a variety of designs and colors. They are a great gesture and the rest of your chapter will be envious. Imagine how cool you and your big/little will look walking around campus showing off your bond. Make sure to take a ton of Big/Little photos in them and send them to us so we can see them too!

Fall Crafting

Tis the season to be crafty!

Fall and winter are among the most decorative seasons of the year. We absolutely adore the window displays in department stores and all the decorations that you find at Target or at Michael’s, but it adds up. Why not use what you have to make your own?

Do-it-yourself projects are fun, easy, and most of all cheap! Take advantage of your free time or take a study break and start crafting away. Make something for your apartment, friends, or your little! Some of our favorite projects this season are:

Chalkboard Paint


Chalkboard paint spices even the most ordinary thing, like a pumpkin, up. You can use wood, plastic, or even actual pumpkins and paint it with chalkboard paint. Wait until it dries and write whatever you want on it! If you get tired of looking at the same thing for a while, change it up and chalk something  new!

Mason Jars


You can do anything with a mason jar! Paint it and make it a vase or mod podge some leaves to it and viola, you’ve got a candle! Mason jars are fairly cheap and easy to buy in bulk!

Wreaths


Wreaths are a great way to show that you are in the holiday spirit! You are putting your personality and apartment on display for all to see…so why not get creative?

We’ve pinned these ideas and more, so check out our DIY Fall Crafting Board and others that we’ve made! If you want to make your own fall design for a shirt, send us your ideas! We would love to help!

Monogram Madness

A wise woman once said, “my sheets are monogrammed, so is my silverware and pretty much everything else I own. My rule is, if it’s not moving, monogram it.” The woman who spoke these truthful words is every sorority girl’s favorite southern belle and lawyer, Reese Witherspoon.

Monograms are a way to personalize even the simplest household item. They are a way to dazzle, and to let everyone know that what you have belongs to you. Even though monograms are very simple since they are just three letters, it is something that is extremely personal because it reflects your identity- your first, last, and middle name.

Sororities are catching on to this phenomenon and creating their own monograms using the Greek letters. This trend is taking the clothing industry by storm; Monograms are in high demand this fall for all types of items. From the side of your rain boot, to your windbreaker, to your stationary, you can easily point out one of your sisters on campus because of her monogram. Sorority girls are quickly discovering the possibilities of where they can leave their mark by using their monogram, so the question is, what can’t you monogram?

We’ve pinned some monogram ideas from shirts, to hats, to towels…check out our board! Make your monogram come alive by submitting it to the Greek Streak team!

Adding Quotes to Your Shirt!

Using quotes on your Greek apparel can be super eye catching. Quotes can be used on shirts for recruitment, bid day, formals, and every day wear. Some quotes will get people’s attention and wonder what chapter you are a part of. They are a great way to get PNMs attention and make them want super cute shirts too! Who wouldn’t want a catchy shirt that gets people interested?! Some quotes can be inspiring about Greek life and help others see why we love it so much! My personal favorite quote is, “If I paid for my friends, I surely didn’t pay enough.” This quote makes me realize that the friendships I have made will last a lifetime, as well as the memories made! Next time you have an event, or just want to order a shirt with a catchy quote, check out Greek Streak! Search through our pre-made designs or design your own awesome shirt!

My Experience in a Honor’s Fraternity

We all know that when we think of Greek Life, we think of the Traditional Fraternity or Sorority. However, there’s another part of Greek Life that is popular among colleges : co-ed Fraternities!

I just so happen to be in a National Co-ed Honor’s Fraternity called Phi Sigma Pi at Towson University. And honestly, I think it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

I think the greatest part of joining not only my fraternity, but just Greek life in general, is the sense of family you have. I have met some pretty amazing people since I rushed back in Spring ’13 and can truly rely on any of my brothers for anything at all.  Surrounding myself with people who are determined, smart, and passionate about life is why I love being in a Fraternity. I consider the friends I that I have made in PSP, some of my best friends. Joining Greek Life is a great way to meet people with all different backgrounds be it their major, hometown, or just life experiences.

I think another deal breaker for me is that my fraternity is really committed to community service and giving back to the local Baltimore community. Being a brother of Phi Sigma Pi has motivated me to become more of a leader both within and outside our chapter. Right now I am one of the Philanthropy Chairs for Gamma Pi, our chapter, which I was wary to take on because it was a new position this year. However with the support of my brothers, I ran and got the position! Last semester, I also had the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy. I got through the stressful application process and was encouraged all along the way even when I was abroad. My brothers even sent me a surprise package with little notes and goodies that really helped with feeling homesick.

I joined a fraternity to make a bigger impact in the community and to meet new people. Why do I stay? Because of the friendships that I have made, the commitment to challenging ourselves to be the best we can be, and the memories that are still to come.
