Recruitment season is back in full swing, and you may be wondering whether it's something you want to participate in or not. Before you make your final decision, it's time to clear the air. Everything you've heard is not true. If you've ever been told you're not the type, it's a huge time commitment, it's an easy way to make friends, or that you're buying them, it's a lie.

4. You're not the type

At most schools, there is a place for everyone. Step outside of the stereotypical sorority personality you have conjured up in your head. Not everyone is like that. In fact, most of us aren't. Don't let the more cookie cutter houses you visit during recruitment make you believe that that stereotypical sorority girl stigma is true.

3. It's a huge time commitment

It is what you make of it. You'll have to go to weekly chapter gatherings and meet the semester expectations, but those are fairly limited in most cases. You are in no way required to attend every social event or be on time to everything. If you have soccer, a large class load, or student council, there are always excuse forms for you to fill out. Greeks want you to be a well-rounded person!

2. Joining a sorority is an easy way to make friends

If you're shy, joining a sorority isn't going to automatically make you super outgoing. Joining a sorority doesn't also guarantee you friends; it's no different than college life in general. You need be active, participate, and be open to new friendships. You still have to put in effort.

1. You're buying your friends

Going along with #2, you're not buying your friends, because they're not even guaranteed. What you're buying is cute tees, a new house, yummy meals, social functions, and an incredible amount of philanthropy opportunities. You'll just find that you make friends along the way.If you have any doubts, give it a try. You might just be surprised.
