4 Travel Tips Every Wanderlust Should Know!


The famous quote by J.R.R. Tolkien reads, “Not all those who wander are lost.” We travel to explore, to experience, and to feel what others across the world are feeling. Many of us travel to find ourselves. Therefore, it makes sense for us to travel while we are young, before we have definite opinions on the world and on ourselves. So many people have told me that their best decision was to study abroad, and their biggest regret was not doing so. But if you don’t have a whole semester to dedicate to such a mission, why not take a couple months to do so? As a graduation present to myself, I am backpacking through Europe with a few of my Gamma Phi Beta sisters, and have found that preparation for it can be quite the handful! Here are some tips and tools to help the young traveler prepare for their journey!
  • Travel Websites
    • Travel websites are a great place to begin planning your trip! Statravel.com is  one such website. STA offers everything from discounted rates on flights, to travel insurance. They also have pre-planned trips and access to a student passport, which can help when you are abroad. Another great site to look at is efcollegetrips.com. EF offers a section of the website in which you can select a city and view that city’s profile. This includes guides to the weather, sites, food, nightlife, etc. It’s important to look at the reviews of hostels and hotels to make sure they are safe enough to stay at.
  • The "Rail"
    • Rails services such as Eurail, BritRail, and Japan Rail are a great way to backpack! Rather than taking unknown busses and flights, you are able to pre-plan your trip. You can see the departure dates and times, and have the option of paying for just a certain number of travel days or an unlimited number of days during a specific frame of time. Not to mention you can feel safe knowing you will be riding along other student travelers as well.
  • Travel Light!
    • When backpacking make sure to only take the essentials, this will keep you from having a heavier load than necessary. On top of this, it is easier to have items stolen if you can’t keep track of them all. Many people suggest also keeping valuables and cash in a hidden place. A great way for women to keep their cash safe is by creating a money pocket in your bras – there’s no way a pick-pocketer is getting in there! Another helpful hint is to stuff your shoes. By placing smaller clothing, such as undergarments or socks, in your shoes, you will be saving space in your backpack or luggage.
  • Travel with a Friend! 
    • The best way to ensure you are staying safe is to have a companion. Travel with someone you trust and know will be responsible. Sorority sisters can make the best travel companions!
Wherever you may go, make the best of your experience! See the world, take risks, and be open to all different cultures. You never know what you will learn about the world. Happy travels!

5 Trends of Spring Formal Dresses

Formal season is just around the corner, which means it’s time for dress shopping! Whether it’s your own sorority formal, or if your favorite Fraternity is off to Vegas, here are some of my favorite styles and where you can find them!


1.     Geometric lines and cutouts
Geometric lines and patternts, cutouts and slits, and deep v-necks are by far the biggest trend this season! These styles offer strategically placed designs to create the illusion of a slimmer figure. 

2.     Rompers
Rompers are the one clothing item I will forever swear by. They are comfortable, flattering, and you are able to dress them up or down. A basic romper with a cinched high-waist is my go-to! 

3.     The Two-Piece
Making their way to center stage this fashion season, are two-piece ensembles! A very Miley-esque sort of look, these are great for looking cute, while still having a good time. 

4.     Florals and Pastels
Typical of spring, florals and pastels are making their comeback. Nothing quite matches up to the girly feeling of twirling around in a pretty floral dress. 

5.     The Skater
As a huge fan of skater skirts, I can’t help but love the skater dress! The sinched waist and flowy bottom offer a flattering and flirty look!
