About a month or so ago, one of my sorority sisters Facebook messaged me and asked if I wanted to participate in a pen pal-type program with a current member. Now, as much as I appreciated the opportunities being in a sorority gave me (I danced in THON as a part of Tri-Sigma), my closest friendships were formed my freshman year before I pledged.
I decided to give it a try and have thoroughly enjoyed speaking with the two ladies who have emailed with me. While I certainly don’t lack in the friendship area, it’s always nice to: 1. have an excuse to go back up to State College, 2. meet new people and 3. form relationships with the leaders of tomorrow.
We’ll see how things go as the year progresses. I’m hoping that this helps me to learn new things, connect with new people and maybe make a few new friends along the way. You never can have too many!
