You may be wondering what all the fuss is about when it comes to the Big & Little relationship. We’re here to help share a little insight on your new big sister and what it looks like to be a little sister. So you’ve pledged and now you're trying to figure out just where you fit into your sorority. You’ve probably been on more sister-date’s than bumble dates in the last fews weeks in hopes of finding the Christina Yang to your Meredith Grey in your new family. Now it's time for the start of your big and little adventure, it's big-and-little week! You are now the center of your, for now, secret sister’s world. She will shower you with gifts, love, mystery clues, and all the snacks. You will probably spend your week channeling your inner Sherlock Holmes keeping tabs on all the potential bigs you have your heart set on for a clue to whom she may be. After one of the best weeks full of crazy costumes, chapter events, and don’t forget presents it's finally time for Big Reveal day. Also known in our opinion as “The best day ever”. It’s a time where your big gets to tell you and the whole world that she is taking you under her wing. We may be biased but our favorite part of Big Reveal day is the family gear you and your big will be sporting. Honestly who doesn’t love a good theme or reason to take an adorable instagram worthy photo.
Here are a few of our favorite looks for reveal day;
Reveal day has come and gone and you may be thinking; So what can I expect from my big? She’s the person you could call in the middle of the night and can count on for something as little as a ponytail during a tailgate or the person who helps mend your broken heart. She will love you unconditionally no questions asked or judgement! She’s your guide for all things Greek life, she will know which professors to avoid, and the best coffee spot on campus. Your big will not just outlast every single crush, boyfriend, and breakup, but she will be your personal coach through each one. The big & little relationship can be one of the most meaningful relationships that you will gain in your 4 years on campus. We personally think it is one of the best aspects of your sorority experience, just remember to let go of any of those pre conceived notions of who and what your big should be like and embrace the process of getting to know the girl who will undoubtedly be instrumental in your college life!
