    Nine Potential New Member Sorority Recruitment Tips

    Hi y’all! August is quickly approaching, which for many means its back to school time. For college students elsewhere, it also means recruitment season is here!

I attempted to blog under some other names, but nothing felt right. So, I figured my own name would be the best way to keep a blog that I loved.  I’m Lindsey. I’m a 20-something elementary school teacher with a passion for sharing things about life.
