skymystique asked: What's your advice for getting a big pledge class? I'm in a local social sorority competing with National Sororities during Panhel recruitment, and we always wind up only two or three girls. (I also go to a small school. Typical classes are like 30-40) Pledging my organization was the best decision ever, but nobody takes us seriously since we're so small. I've made a huge difference as social chair as far as getting us out there, but I really want to rock recruitment this fall.
Great question! Although your chapter is smaller and possibly less known to PNMs (potential new members), you actually can have an edge against national sororities. Your job is to make sure you emphasize why a smaller chapter is beneficial. Give personal testimonies about why you chose your chapter during recruitment over the others. Boosting the morale among your members is the MOST important during recruitment because if your members are discouraged about not being able to compete against other houses, then your PNMs can see that! I’m sure your founders had a very specific purpose in creating your chapter, so remind your members and express that to your PNMs. Surely after that they will find value in pledging your chapter!
Anonymous asked: So im rushing this upcoming fall. My boyfriend is already in a frat, i'm scared that our relationship will fall through the cracks? Weve been together since highschool, but I got tired of not being in a sorority and just watching him have all the fun. Any advice?? PLEASE <3
One thing you should realize about college, which you already might know, is that most people (especially the guys) want to be single for the first two years. This mentality usually comes from the older fraternity men promoting partying and being around tons of single girls that want to “hook up” without a commitment. Not all guys take on this “single is the best” mentality, but from my own personal experience—it is just a reality! The idea that you will “meet your future spouse in college” scares a lot of guys because they believe that their first couple years are their last “free” years to do whatever they want.
That being said, if your relationship isn’t struggling now, then you have nothing to worry about. I also know plenty of couples that have pulled through those rough first few months of college. If you have made it this far, I don’t see why you should be concerned. You joining a sorority should just make your bond stronger because you can relate to him better.
This is cliche, but absolutely true: if it’s meant to be you can get through anything.
Anonymous asked: Are you affiliated to the other TSM/TFM?
No we are not. TotalSororMove was started by a University sorority member and is still run by active Greek members. We are not affiliated with any other organization and simply exist for entertainment: that is why you never see sponsorships, ads or promotions in our tweets. :) -#TSM

Sometimes photobombing is an artistic endeavor that transforms a photo into a beautiful portrait. And sometimes, photobombing is downright frightening, especially when the person stays in character so well. WHY IS SHE GETTING CLOSER? HALP! HAALLSDGJPP!
This is hilarious. Enjoy. #TSM
