I have just spent the past 5 days with my dear sorority girl.  We actually have been representing her college as a student and parent speaker at their Information sessions for potential students.  We had a really fun time living out of suitcases in hotels, gorging ourselves on Starbucks and meeting so many great parents and students who are all excited about heading to college.  In addition we have spoken with many young women and their mothers about the recruitment process and how to have a fantastic and successful recruitment at a competitive school.
We were sitting drinking coffee and i posed this question, “What are the top 10 items any sorority girl at your school would think she NEEDS?”….she thought for a few minutes and then we got to work making the following list.
Here’s the DISCLAIMER:  Theses items ARE NOT NEEDED to receive a bid or to have a successful recruitment. they are simply items that my daughter has talked about with her sisters as LUXURY items they would like to own.  In answer to the question you are going to ask…YES…some of her friends own all 10 items and NO my daughter does not own every item on the list.
1.  iphone….this is simply the “it” phone of college campuses..
2. Ray-Ban sunglasses
3. iphone wristlet
4. iphone cover
5. cross body bag
6. Tory Burch shoes..
7. sorority totes….Lilly Pulitzer…needs to be monogramed.
8. Nike shorts….never enough!!!!
9.  David Yurman…a ring, multiple bracelets, earrings
10.  Michael Kors and Fossil watches
And so there you go….a sorority girls Wish List….maybe you should start one too !!
