"I’m an upcoming sophomore, and I went through the Panhellenic Recruitment cycle last fall as a freshman. In simplest terms, I felt so beyond out of place, uncomfortable, and undoubtedly neglected due to the color of my skin, and can comfortably say that I dropped recruitment for that very reason. I vividly remember being treated differently during recruitment rounds, and felt so out of place at certain houses (such as Kappa Delta and Phi Mu), where there was not a person of color in sight - only different shades of white. I felt as if every part of my personality and character was constantly masked by the mere color of my skin. Moreover, I saw maybe 3 other girls during the entire week, that were of color - this made me feel so out of place. I can go into so many details, but I choose not to. I typically am never one to feel outcasted by my skin, but I so very clearly was seen differently in this case. I can say, if I have ever felt bounded by the color of my skin on UGA Campus, it was during Panhellenic recruitment."
