Back To School Rush

As many college students head back to school, there will be a plethora of anxiety ridden girls who are about to go through sorority rush. These girls will have aching smile muscles, sore throats, and an earful of gossip over where to pledge and what decision they should make. Take it from my experience, everything will work out the way it is meant to be! While I am not condoning picking a sorority house based on the beauty of a home, it sure does make your 4 year allegiance that much sweeter.

Southern Living recently did a round-up of some of the most beautiful sorority houses in the south, and you will be blown away to see the intertwined elegance of design and function. It would be hard to finish school in 4 years when you are living in a mansion that has been professionally decorated with a cook. While you can’t take the house with you, at least you get to keep the friends made in it. Happy rushing to all the young girls out there, and happy waiting for all those mommy legacies!

Kappa Kappa Gamma at University of Arkansas. WOW! I would purposefully do extra laps of college to live here. Love the touch of boxwood and blue and white.

More blue and white at KKG at Arkansas. (I have been to the Chi O house at Arkansas and that is quite incredible too!).

The formal living area of Kappa Kappa Gamma at Arkansas. It looks more like the interior of a beautiful family residence than of a communal home.

  1. I love this!!! Years ago when I rushed, the DG house at Universiity of the Pacific was the bee’s knees – far better than the green or gold shag-carpeted alternatives. I loved the girls as well but I do admit, the house impacted my decision.
