GREEK LIFE: SORORITY CEREMONIES AND RITUALS

“BIG” – Assigned to the elders of a Greek organization. Becoming a “big brother” or “big sister” in a Greek organization denotes that you get to become a role model to a “New Member” or “Pledge.” As a big, you essentially become their advisor throughout initiation and during their time in college. The bond between big and little is very special, and often times a lifetime bond is forged.

“LITTLE” – In order to become a “big brother” or “big sister,” you have to become a “little brother” or “little sister” first, and pledge to join a fraternity or sorority. While this position isn’t an enviable one, especially when rushing, you get an older friend who can help you navigate the entire process of pledging. Some organizations allow you to choose your big or little. Other times it’s randomly assigned. And sometimes, it’s a little bit of both.

PLEDGESHIP The process of pledging is typically a six to nine month process, though it depends on the organization you’re pledging. This is where you’ll go through the process of becoming a brother or sister of an organization, including being paired with a big brother or big sister. You must complete this period of time in order to join the fraternity or sorority and become an official member.

PADDLES – Paddles are traditionally an integral part of sorority and fraternity life, and are made by a “big brother or sister” and given to a “little brother or sister” within the organization. These wooden paddles are hand-painted and often contain the names of the big and little, along with the organization’s crest, chapter, and colors. It’s symbolic of the relationship between fraternity and sorority siblings, and is a cherished keepsake.

LAVALIERE – A necklace or charm of a fraternity that is given from a fraternity brother to his girlfriend, symbolizing his commitment to her. It also symbolizes the acceptance of the chapter. It is considered a very special, sentimental gesture by both the fraternity and the girlfriend if she is in a sorority.

PINNING – This is where a fraternity brother “pins” his girlfriend with the badge of the fraternity, symbolizing his long-term commitment to this person, and most likely a precursor marriage. This is a time-honored tradition and symbolizes that a brother views his girlfriend in the same, if not higher regard, than his fraternity brothers. At times, this isn’t always met with acceptance by the brothers of the fraternity but it also denotes the sacrifice and commitment a brother makes to his chapter.

Time To Get Social!

SISTERS!!! With the semester coming to an end and pledge initiation right around the corner, it’s time to let loose with our favorite fabulous females at our chapter social!

So let’s get this party started with only the coolest Kappas on campus!

Hilary Hargrove – President. In charge of keeping the girls in order, Hilary will have some serious sleuthing to do if she is going to find a way to keep the Kappa Kappa house from being disbanded. 

Sarah Details – Secretary. While the duties of her office weigh heavily on Sarah, so does the future with her boyfriend. Can Sarah succeed in keeping her boyfriend and Kappa Kappa office? 

Amanda Dollar – Treasurer. Responsible for the Kappa Kappa budget and payment of expenses, things haven’t been adding up recently, and Amanda needs to find out who is to blame. 

Patty Party – Social Chair. Known to throw wildly successful and entertaining parties, Patty takes responsibility for the sorority’s popular reputation on campus. While this reputation attracts fun members, it also puts a target on Patty’s back! 

Chastity Turner – Philanthropy Chair. With more service hours and donations than any past Philanthropy Chair, Chastity is a legend in her own mind. But when the numbers stop adding up, she will have some explaining to do. 

Rita Clinton – Recruitment Chair. Pinned by her beau earlier this week, Rita’s future looks bright… if she can survive the allegations of hazing brought by her pledges.  

Perfect Pam – Panhellenic Representative. With many allegations of bad social behavior pending against the house, Pam is the one who will have to convince the Panhellenic Board that the Kappas should NOT be placed on probation or suspended or – worst of all — disbanded! 

Heather Hancock – Active Legacy. Living in the shadow of her mother, Heather has a lot to live up to if she plans to make her family proud. 

Prudence Smith – Active. Skeptical of her fellow sisters, Prudence will fight to make sure that the Kappa Kappa name is not tarnished by scandal. 

Betsy Grades – Active. Recipient of the prestigious Kappa Kappa scholarship, Betsy needs the sorority to stay active – her education (and her future) depends on it! 

Elizabeth Money – Active. Coming from a wealthy family, Elizabeth wants to leave more to the sorority than her service hours. 

Dakota Delta – Active. With Dakota’s brother dating a Kappa, she is torn between her sorority sisters. Will Dakota have to choose between siding with her brother’s current girlfriend or his ex? 

Penny Pledger – Pledge President. While dissension among the ranks is brewing, Penny is certain she can pull the new members together to have the strongest pledge class in Kappa Kappa history.

Connie Cartwright – Legacy pledge. Connie’s family connections gave her an unfair advantage in rush… one Connie will have to overcome if she plans to be part of a very cohesive pledge class.  

Samantha Johnson – Pledge. Although Kappa Kappa wasn’t her first choice in rush, there is no place Samantha would rather be – now she just needs to prove it.

Darla Darling – Pledge. Positive, enthusiastic and in love with everything Kappa, Darla is any sorority’s dream pledge… as long as her twin sister doesn’t ruin it for her!  

Carla Darling – Pledge. Distraught over the treatment that the pledges have received in rush, Carla can’t keep quiet for much longer. The question is, who will Carla take down in her protest and fight? 

Hazel Green – Pledge. Rushed for her grades alone, Hazel has some roadblocks to remove before the girls will see her as the party rockstar she desires to be! 

Allison Almighty – Advisor. As an alumnae, Allison is here to offer her advice and guidance to keep the girls on the straight and narrow. There is no way Allison will let any Kappas destroy what she helped to build. 

Cicily – House Mom. While the Kappas are worried about keeping their chapter, Cicily is simply worried about keeping her job. Or is there more than that which is at stake?

Go Overboard with Color!!!

One way to really turn your space into a party place would be to acentuate your color theme. You can’t go wrong with Kappa purple and pink!

Para que la combinación de colores se extienda a todo el espacio, ten en cuenta lo siguiente:

• When decorating a large area or to make an area look more intimate and festive, consider draping purple, pink, or silver gossamer across the ceiling, walls, and edges of the tablecloth. Combine two colors for a fabulous appearance.

• A little spray paint can go a long, long way. Spray paint novelty items, vases, old wine bottles, etc. to help bring out the color theme and add inexpensive decoration to your party.

• Have a tablecloth — whether plastic or fabric — the colors of your choice.

• Accentuate your tablecloth with the alternative color by using paint pens or fabric paint to paint on decorative accents.

• Don’t forget to sparkle! Sorority girls love to shine, so don’t be shy with the metallic spray paint and/or bedazzling your decorations with glitter and/or jewels!

• Use streamers, paper lanterns and/or large sheets of fabric to really bring the color through in large spaces.

• Make sure your party-ware is color themed! It will bring it all together.

USING FABRIC

There are many ways you could use fabric to help bring through your color theme.

• Drape brightly colored fabric on the walls like banners.

• Make a table runner.

• Drape over furniture.

• Create decorative pillows.

• Tie to the back of a chair.Places to find fabrics inexpensively:
– Searching clearance bins at fabric stoes
– Second hand shops
– The fabric section at Walmart

CREATE A PHOTO SPOT!!!

Ofrezca a sus invitados un recuerdo inolvidable instalando una zona de fotos en la que puedan fotografiarse con el personaje.

Algunas sugerencias:

- Elija un lugar donde haya buena iluminación.

- Puede hacerla tan elaborada o sencilla como quiera.

- Los accesorios y la decoración pueden marcar la diferencia. Tenga a mano algunos accesorios adicionales con los que sus invitados puedan posar.

- Una forma fácil de crear un fondo es utilizar un "ambientador". Estos asequibles rollos de imágenes transforman su habitación al instante y constituyen un buen telón de fondo para su fotografía.

- Asegúrese de que hay suficiente espacio para que todos quepan en el marco.

- Para las fotos individuales de los invitados, designe a alguien que se encargue de las fotos a medida que vayan llegando sus invitados.

o Considera tu lista de personajes y qué personaje encajaría en el papel de tomar la foto. Es decir, si quieres fotos de la ficha policial, quizás pidas al investigador que se encargue de hacer las fotos.

- Para una foto de grupo, tome una justo antes de que se lea la introducción o justo después de que se lea la solución (antes de que la gente empiece a salir).
o Son dos momentos en los que se puede contar con que todo el mundo esté cerca y atento.

BACKDROP AND POSING IDEAS for the sorority theme

• Hang a Kappa Kappa on a wall and all pose in front of it.

• Make a pyramid with your fellow Kappas!

• Create LARGE “K”s and have them standing up.

• Have additional props for posing in pictures (boas, mustaches, crowns, tiaras, sunglasses, etc.)

Consejos

Dado que nuestros juegos están escritos a medida para el tamaño del grupo (es decir, no creamos un misterio con 8 personajes y luego seguimos añadiendo más personajes), cada tamaño de misterio es único en sí mismo. Dicho esto, pasar de una versión de 10 a 15 a una de 15 a 20, no sólo añadirá más personajes, sino que cambiará el argumento de los personajes existentes, y viceversa al pasar de una versión más grande a una más pequeña.

Por ello, le sugerimos encarecidamente que obtenga un recuento de invitados antes de realizar el pedido formal. Puede hacerlo descargando una invitación, invitando a sus invitados y luego comprando su misterio una vez que tenga un número más exacto de personas que asistirán. Desafortunadamente, si te encuentras comprando la fiesta de tamaño incorrecto, tendrás que comprar otra versión del misterio para el tamaño que deseas, a menos que estés pasando de la versión de 15-20 a la de 20+.

Puedes descargue una invitación aquí antes de hacer el pedido.

Check out some of these movies or t.v. shows that depict some of sorority (and fraternity) life you might find in the A Sorority Slaying: Legally Blond, Sorority Wars, Sorority Row, Revenge of the Nerds, Sorority House, Animal House, Old School, Greek (t.v. series). Or you can pick your own from this list of sorority movies.
