Have a cooking, nutrition, fitness, or totally random question for The Slender Student? Ask away!
Ever since bagel thins filled my sorority’s bagel drawer (yeah, we have a bagel drawer) and PB2 made an appearance on the kitchen countertop, I’ve been curious about how houses at other universities keep it slender. Indulge my nosiness and send in pictures of snacks or meals served in your sorority house that are helping promote your journey to slenderhood. Do a group of you do a workout class together? Send in a picture or tell me about it in a comment below! Frustrated by the lack of slender options available at your house? Vent that in a comment too!
I’ll be featuring your submissions in a future post, so start sending ‘em in! You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet, Instagram, or Facebook me!
I lived in my sorority house my sophomore year. It was pretty much exactly like the movies– girls running around in their towels asking to borrow clothes, late night chats, and gratuitous slandering of the opposite sex. What I didn’t expect, or learn from that terrible movie Sorority Wars, though, was how food-centric living in the house would be. Food or discussions of food were inescapable, so I was always left feeling overstuffed or just bummed out.
Since I’m now a senior, those days of sorority house living seem like ancient history (despite the fact that I still eat there at least twice a week and study there more than I’d like to mention). However, a recent comment from a reader, Rachel, reminded me of just how hard it can be. So, being the sisterly and wise upperclassman that I am, I decided to come up with my 10 commandments for sorority house living and eating. They’re printable and everything. What else could you ask for? …No, you can’t borrow my Pleasure Doing Business skirt on Thursday.

Don’t live in a sorority house but think these are good rules to live and eat by? You’re an A+ Slender Student. These rules can be taken anywhere and are especially useful in a buffet style setting (think dining hall).
