Too much fun to pass up - Greek life flashback

Some fun girls in the blog world have made a link up for today talking about an experience you had being in the sorority/fraternity world and after reading some of their posts I decided I just had to join in.

As most of you probably already know, reminiscing about college is nothing but fun. Truly the best four years...ever! I loved my college experience and a lot of that had to do with Gamma Phi Beta. *Beta Lambda*

 ^our last formal together - i love my fall05^
 ^presenting our new baby members^
^ freshman year awkwardness 

I came SO close to ditching recruitment and saying I wasn't interested in Greek life but thanks to my persistent recruitment director, I showed up and a week later I was standing there on bid day with 55 new girls I had never met before plus the existing 100+ older girls...intimidating to say the least.

 ^my little sis and best friend^
 ^fall '05's finally being at the top - seniors!^
^these girls will forever be a part of my most cherished memories ^

Despite all the negative views people have regarding the Greek system, I can honestly say it was one of the best things I've ever done. Not only did I have a blast at all the events, formals, rush week, big sis/litte sis, etc. but it gave me life long friends that give my life such meaning and it also taught me a lot about dealing with people, being able to talk to anyone (pocket questions?), enduring crowds, time management, friendship, trust, dedication and commitment. I would not trade Gamma Phi, the memories or the people that have come into my life through the Greek system for anything.

PS- looking through all these old photos makes me miss it even more!! ah! <3
