I’m a Phi Mu, Stay a Phi Mu, Phi Mu ’til I Die

This isn’t your typical article, but it isn’t your typical sorority. It’s better.

Phi Mu. You will always have my heart.

The decision to pledge myself into Phi Mu on October 27th, 2016 was quite frankly one of the best decisions that I have ever made, and that made the decision I had to make to become an alumna one of the hardest ones I have ever made.

It sounds cliche, but that is the truth. My sisters in Phi Mu will always be in my heart. This article is for them, and all of the future Phi Mu pledge classes.

Dearest sister,

I will always be here. Hopefully, I got the chance to get to know you, but if I did not… let’s fix that. I may not be present, but I’m always here for you. No matter what happens in your life, you will always have someone to go to for help, advice, or just someone to talk to. I will always be your sister. Our differences may never go away, but neither will I. Our sisterhood is one that is in my heart for eternity, and I hope it is in yours too.

Always remember that our sorority is one of a kind, and each and every one of us is beautifully and wonderfully made. Stand tall, be yourself, and never apologize for being you… because you are amazing just the way you are.

It made me so happy to see all of your pictures through recruitment and getting our beautiful new phis this bid day, but it also made me sad. I’m sad because the collegiate membership part of my life is behind me, but I’m happy to have experienced it with all of y’all.

I can’t wait to see the amazing things that our chapter does in the future.

I love Phi Mu and I love all of you.

Here’s some of my favorite Phi Mu memories:

Stay Golden,

Going GREEK-ΦΜ

Spring Recruitment is fast approaching, so here I am taking the time to tell you all about my amazing experience going GREEK.

Let me start out by saying that I had never imagined myself in a sorority. I always thought that the reputation that they have been given was true, but trust me when I say becoming a sister of Phi Mu at High Point University was literally the best thing I have ever done.

When recruitment came around last Spring, I watched as my friends went through the process. They got their bids and all seemed so incredibly happy. That’s when I started regretting my decision to skip out on the whole thing.

Skipping ahead to Fall of this year… my friend recommended me to the chapter, and I got a bid. This put me in a tough position. I was still terrified to start something new, but I now had another opportunity to do what I thought I would never do. After talking to a few of the sisters in the chapter, I decided to accept my bid. That was the best thing I ever could have done.

ΦΜ has changed me for the better. I have found the girls that would give anything for me. I found my place. They accept every part of me and are always so encouraging. If I ever need anything, one of my sisters would be willing to help even if we don’t know each other that well. That’s the best part. Before going GREEK, I was so shy and scared to try new things. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that it completely went away the moment I joined ΦΜ, but I am slowly becoming the person I was destined to be.

I am forever grateful for my sisters and this amazing opportunity.

If you have the chance, GO GREEK! You won’t regret it.

Stay Golden,

Emily
