Advice with some spice

September 6, 2013

Hola! It’s that time of year again when Paprika and her spicy friends give you the most helpful advice you can ever receive in your college careers! We cannot wait to solve your most burning issues while providing that extra spice that you need when picking up that Courier!

Q: I am a freshman and I want to get involved in Greek life, but am nervous that I do not have the time or finances to join. Any suggestions?

Paprika: Whad up Whad up! First off, I have to say, get it girl! You are the first freshman to e-mail me this semester. Normally, I would say that new students wouldn’t know a good thing unless it smacked ‘em across the face, but you seem like an intelligent lady since you want to get involved on campus. When it comes to Greek life, I think, why not! It’s a great way to get your name known on campus and make some pretty legit friends. College is all about hitting dem books, but you need time to let off some steam and hang out with friends. I say, jump straight into the sauna and let off that steam! Why not give it a chance? Who knows, it could be the best decision you make at MC!

Peppercorn: Hello again all of my favorite MC-ers! You know, getting involved is a really important part of the college experience. One way to get involved is through Greek life! However, disregard anything you’ve ever heard in movies or on TV, because Animal House is a thing of the past! Yes, Greek life does cost money, but all of the groups on campus are really good at working with their members! Many offer payment plans and work with their members to make sure they are able to be part of the organization. As far as time is concerned, it’s all about what you’re looking to get out of the organization. There’s a saying “What you put into it, you will get out of it.” I think this is very true of Greek life. There are some members who are very involved like the president and executive board members, but there are others who take on smaller roles in the organization. Whatever you’re looking for, I’m sure you will be able to find it in Greek life if you so choose!
