  • Society Spotlight | Whittier College
    13 from The Rock Fall 2013 I WAS 18 YEARS OLD and it was probably the worst day of my life As I was packing for my return home from our choir tour in Oahu I received a text with the four most dreaded words in a girl s vocabulary We need to talk The text message was followed by a long and agonizing phone call back home Breaking up over the phone was not how I had planned to spend my last day in paradise but it happened I felt as if I was in a scene of a bad romance movie After I hung up the phone I did what any other broken hearted teenage girl would do I cried a lot Fortunately I was rooming with two girls who empathized with my situation and wanted to make sure that I was okay They stayed by my side for the rest of the day even as we boarded the plane and flew back to Whittier It was wonderful to know that these two girls who hardly knew me would go out of their way to give me advice and cheer me up on such a bad day It was as if I had two older siblings watching over me It wasn t until later that I learned these girls were both in the Palmer Society I never thought of myself being the society type but the sincerity and honesty that I felt from my roommates while on my choir tour was more than enough to change my mind I pledged the Palmer Society the following spring I was amazed at how a group of young women so different from one another can in just a few short weeks become sisters of the heart The pledging experience itself was tough because at the same time I was working two jobs and rehearsing for the upcoming musical Rent but I survived I quickly learned that being in a society was much more than partying painting the Rock and wearing matching sweaters It is much more personal The sisters I have gained here at Whittier have been my support system and have pushed me to achieve my goals Whether I was performing in a play or singing in a concert I knew I could always count on my sisters to be in the audience cheering me on and bringing positive vibes Sisters are more than the girls you hang with at school they are the supportive family you need anytime and anywhere Being in a society really shaped my undergraduate years and pushed me to never give up I have obtained a great deal of skills that I can use in my daily life I have had valuable leadership opportunities and experience I have learned incredible time management skills I can practically be in two places at once I have learned how to think creatively and how to plan and organize a successful event Joining a society allowed me to get
