At first, I was worried that everyone would be more mature in their faith and not as lost as I was, but as I began to talk with all the other Greeks throughout the week, I realized that most of them were struggling with the same issues as me. Some of these issues included incorporating faith into our busy lives, trying to find a balance between Greek life and religion, and just our basic beliefs in God. The biggest thing that impacted me was being able to spend time in a totally Christian atmosphere. It was a pleasant break from my community at school because during the conference I was able to talk more openly with people about my faith, and it was encouraging to hear that other Greeks were facing the same challenges on their campuses. I really enjoyed the time everyone got to worship together as well. It was a great way to connect to all of the people in the room, and really share a moment with God.
After coming back from the conference, I decided to really try and incorporate God into my life. Since Greek Conference, I have been going to my sorority’s bible study every Wednesday so that each week I am dedicated to thinking and talking about my faith. During the conference, I was also able to hang out with members of other sororities from W&M. I still hang out with many of these girls, and it is nice to know that I can share my faith with them. Above all, I have come to realize that a relationship with God takes a long time to develop, but now I am dedicated to doing just that.
