Celebrating a Longhorns win over OU this weekend! Hook ‘em!
As long as you’re wearing boots, you’re game day ready!
We definitely recommend wearing your hair up in a styled ponytail — it gets hot!! And with all that tailgating, the football games are an all day affair (Everything’s bigger in Texas!)
As the weather starts to get cooler — which it finally does at the end of October — layers are the answer! Tights under a cute dress, a styled cardigan over a tank top.
Come early, be loud, stay late, and Hook ‘em Horns!

Initiation is upon us! Congratulations girls for successful pledgeships!
Initiation is a time to celebrate with your new sisters. By now, you have had a few months to get to know the girls in your pledge class, and you’ve probably already met your Big! The gifts have been pouring in and you have more clothes and room decorations with your sorority letters and colors than you have school pride.
But now it’s time to get serious. Initiation is important, and can be emotional. You’ll be packed into a room with a hundred or so other girls in matching dresses that are all freaking out as much as you are.
So what exactly is initiation? Initiation is the ceremony that teaches the new members about the significance behind all the organization’s symbols, motto, rituals, etc.
It is an explanation of everything incorporated to the organization, followed by a pledging of the members commitment and dedication to unwavering friendship and sisterhood and to the organization’s social, scholastic, and moral growth.
After a member professes their vows (depending on the organization, vows are recited through a motto or creed, signed in a book, sung through ritual songs, or proven by an activity) the pledge is officially a full-fledged and active member.
Welcome to the next four years of your life! You will be supported by the girls around you through the moments of random hilarity and what feel like life-altering decisions.
Remember, "They are the family we choose to surround us, the sisters bound by love instead of blood. They know when we are lonely, and appear without being called. When we feel lost, they provide a living map to what comes next; when we doubt everything about ourselves, they remind us who we are." — Barbara Alpert
