Coming into MSOE, I was a shy, awkward, and not very confident person. As a freshman, I never had interest in Greek life. When I thought about Greek Life, I always imagined what I saw in movies. The hazing, the partying, and the extents people would go to just to fit in. Starting at MSOE, it was difficult to make friends because I commuted, and everyone else lived in the dorms. I would always feel left out because people were able to make connections together outside of class. Before I knew it, everyone had their own group, except me. Eventually, I made acquaintances, but not the kind of connections I was hoping to make.
