“In a sorority you will find your best friends and your bridesmaids’.” Sheri McGill, my friends’ mother and former sorority girl, once told me. The summer before freshmen year of college was crazy.

Going through rush allows you to meet all of the sororities on a campus and allows you the opportunity to possible join or pledge a sorority.
Miranda Moore Moore 1 Mrs. Luehrs English 8 April 20, 2011 The Process of Creating a Miracle Debbie risks her life, travels across the world, and gives everything she has to women she doesn’t know so they have the tools to become strong and independent.

After a few hours, or even less the show unmistakable signs of queenlessness.” In this epigraph I feel as though they are refereeing to either August or Mary. I see both Mary and August as the back bone of the house hold everyone goes to August when lost or upset and everyone listens to her.

And one of those promises has to be one of my favorite parts
