Thoughts on Being Greek

What is the best part about being Greek?

To me the best part of being Greek, are my sisters. Many people say you pay for your friends when you are in a sorority, and if that's how they see it -- my friends are so worth it because when you join a sorority you form friendships that are so strong you no longer call that person a friend, but rather a sister.
