My Sophomore Year Room + Tips for Adjusting to a Sorority House

I'm so excited to share a little peek into my sophomore year room today! It's not as exciting as my  freshman dorm room last year since I have less of my own space, but I think it turned out really cute (especially since the walls aren't ugly white cinderblock!). I'm using my same bedding from last year and although it's pretty bold, it makes me so happy curling up in it every night. There are 4 of us squeezed into a room that was meant for 3 girls, so space is a bit tight (just imagine 4 girls squeezing clothes into only 3 closets and dressers on move in day!). Luckily they gave us 4 desks, and mine is right between our two beds so it acts as the perfect night stand too. Now that we're all settled, it's starting to feel like home more and more every day - I love having 3 girls to always come home to! 


I'm not going to lie... I was pretty nervous about moving into a house with over 100 girls. As someone who is very independent and craves alone time, I was worried I would never have any quiet time to myself. While it's pretty loud during meals and when everyone is getting ready, I'm surprised how peaceful it is a good amount of the time! We were lucky enough to be assigned a room in the back corner of the upper class wing, so our little area is really calm. Even though all of our friends are upstairs a floor, I love having it less busy when I'm falling asleep or waking up.

Now that I've been living in for a week, I've gotten a good feel for what it's like to be in a sorority house - and I really love it! You're constantly surrounded by friends to hang out with, and it's so easy to study or work on homework with girls because you can always find someone who's in your class. Meals are a great time to get to know people outside your friend group and meet older girls too. The only thing I don't love is that so far I've had a hard time being productive in the little study areas - it's hard to not talk to everyone! After this week, I now know that if I need to get serious work done, I'll head to the library instead. 

I'm curious to hear your thoughts about living in a sorority - comment below!

  1. Enjoy it!!! I graduated but living in my house gave me my best memories of college! I did it for a year and a half. It's so much fun and you'll miss it once your friends are all spread out throughout your new city (or not in the same city!)
