No one can really explain how dumb you feel doing basic things like blowing glitter at a camera. Yet somehow, everyone does it and it looks aesthetically pleasing enough for everyone to keep doing it.

10. Hand Symbols

Every sorority has their own hand symbol that represents their letters. To outsiders they may look like gang signs. But they are great for taking photos on the beach or on top of mountains to show off how cool your chapter is.

11. Secret Handshake

Yes, your entire chapter knows who you are, But yes, you still need to prove your membership every week by doing the secret handshake to get into chapter. Just in case someone is dressed like you and is an imposter!

12. The Cost of Greek Life

Just because you're in a sorority doesn't mean you are rich. In fact, many girls pay for it on their own. So when it is time to pay dues or there are new apparel orders out your wallet can be feeling pretty skinny.
