What a “Little” Surprise

My sorority, Alpha Chi Omega, held a "Big/Little" reveal last night. A "Little" is a new member of the chapter and a "Big" is an upperclassman who is often their mentor, guide or even best friend. Bigs and Littles are picked through a mutual selection process. After the Big finds out which new member is her Little, she keeps it a secret. The Big then leaves the Little gifts throughout the week of reveal with hints to who she is.

When the reveal is and how we reveal is also a secret. Last night, we told the new members we had something at the chapter house. When they arrived, there were shirts and socks left in their mailboxes to put on.

Our bid day theme was Wizard of Oz, and we tried to keep that theme with Big/Little Reveal. That's where the socks came into play. (When the house falls on the witch and all that is showing is her feet)

The Bigs all had shirts and socks that matched their Little. Between the living room and multipurpose room, we had a big blanket up. The Bigs were on one side, and the Littles and chapter member sat on the other. One by one, the Bigs stood behind the blanket, with their socks showing. The new member with the matching socks would then come to the other side of the blanket. The blanket was then dropped to reveal the Big/Little pair.

Lauren and me hugging after the blanket was dropped, revealing me as her Big.

Following Big/Little, we always go to Denny's after all the excitement, almost 50 Alpha Chi's filled up the dining area!

My newest Little is Lauren Kasun, she is from Cedarburg, Wisconsin and is an Equestrian major. I am so happy to add her to my Greek family. Also in my Greek family is my first Little, Diana Lee. She has a Little, Katie Turner. Katie also received a new member as Little last night.

It was my last Big/Little, for it is my senior year, and I must say it was one for the books.
