My daughter won’t be a legacy, and that’s okay

Rush button

The four years I spent at Arizona State University from 1987 to 1991 gave me memories and experiences that changed my life: I met a cute boy who, six years later, would become my husband; made friendships that have lasted 28 years; and discovered that mixing gin and tequila in the same night will lead to a lifetime of not being able to drink either.

It’s safe to say that just about all of my memories of my time at ASU are tied to my sorority. Good memories or bad, Pi Beta Phi defined my life while I was a Sun Devil. My sorority gave me structure, a place to call home, an entire new wardrobe, and a whole bunch of sisters, who, just like my real sister, I often had a love/hate relationship with, but who I was happily bonded to for life.

So it might be surprising to learn that when my daughter made a quick and firm decision not to rush a year ago, I didn’t argue.

Even for a second.


I’m telling you that today over on Grown and Flown (a place where I’ve been happily making myself comfortable lately).

Pop on over and read about my experiences—and hers—right here and let me know if you’ve had the similar thoughts or experiences.

Especially if it relates to tequila.

And to all my Pi Phi sisters, Ring Ching!
