Joining sorority life at Appalachian State University was one of the best decisions I have ever made during my time here as a student. There are many reasons why I have loved being part of sorority life, but one of the main reasons is the Appalachian Panhellenic Hall or the “APH.” The APH is an on campus housing community where sorority girls live. I lived in the APH my sophomore year and loved every second! Living at the APH meant not only did I get to live with the girls in my sorority, but I got to live with girls in other sororities as well.
Living with the girls in my sorority was awesome, because I got to spend time with them which really brought us closer together. Living at the APH meant I always had a friend to help me if I needed something. Living with girls in other sororities was also really great, because I got to know so many other girls involved in Greek life here at Appalachian. I made so many new friends. We were able to support each other and each other’s organizations in many different ways. Weather it be a philanthropy event or a percentage night at a restaurant, I always knew I would see my friends from the APH.
I am someone that enjoys hanging out with people, but I also enjoy my alone time. While living at the APH, I had a perfect mix. I could go to my room and spend time alone, but I always knew, if I wanted to hang out with someone, there was always going to be someone there. Living at the APH is like living in one big building with all of your best friends, and I can say I truly miss having my best friends around me all the time.
