What is a sorority little?

A sorority little is a new member in a sorority who is the mentee of an active sorority sister called a “Big.”

A sorority little is mentored by her sorority big throughout the new member process, initiation events, and beyond that, i.e., college life, sorority life, and post-college life as well.

How do sororities pick bigs and littles?

Usually, the New Member Educator, or sorority sister with an equivalent title/role, will be in charge of pairing potential sorority bigs with a new member in a sorority.

In some cases, a sorority sister will get multiple new members as their littles, so they will be called “twins” or “triplets” (even though they are not biologically related).

The New Member Educator will try to make sure sorority big and little pairings are mutually exclusive and that the new members get their first or second choice Big as indicated on their preference sheet they fill out.

Once the New Member Educator pairs up active sorority sisters with new members, the sorority sister is called and receives the exciting news of who her sorority little(s) is.

Afterward, there is usually a two week period where new members eagerly await to find out who their sorority big is and the sorority bigs are planning for Reveal Night and create baskets to give their for their sorority little(s) leading up to Reveal Night.

What are sorority little baskets?

Sorority little baskets are baskets that contain a variety of items relating to what the sorority little likes (ex: favorite candy, favorite drink, favorite movie/TV show, etc) and sorority apparel/lifestyle items (t-shirts, mugs, sorority letter flag, sorority canvas, etc.).

These baskets are mean to get the sorority little excited and curious of who her sorority big is. It is also a great way for a sorority little to start building her collection of items and apparel with her sorority letters before initiation.

What goes into sorority little gift baskets?

Each sorority will have its own requirements for what to put in sorority little baskets, but overall the baskets will contain a variety of items from food, sorority t-shirts, gift cards, etc. that will get your new sorority little hyped for Reveal Night. Below you can see an image of an actual basket I put together for my second sorority little, we’ll call her Little A.

This is a photo of a gift basket I got my own sorority little back in 2018. It is a brown basket with pink, white, and gold tassels around it. Inside of the basket is a canvas, three shirts, a white blanket, a water bottle, and a light-up letter board.

When I was in a sorority we were given a list of required items to put in our sorority Little’s baskets and suggested items.

Required items included:

  • Pin or badge box
  • Painted/decorated sorority wooden letters
  • Reveal day outfit/t-shirt

Suggested items included:

  • Candy
  • Food
  • T-shirts or other apparel items
  • Stuff animal
  • Blanket
  • Canvases

Usually, there are 3 days worth of baskets and each basket will contain a certain number of items.

Some sororities will be more strict on how many items you can put in your sorority little’s basket to prevent other new members from getting upset or jealous of one another. For example, my sorority capped us at 7 items per basket.

The 3 days worth of baskets may also have a theme chosen by the New Member Educator.

For example, day 1 of baskets could be “your Little’s favorites” so think of creating a basket with her favorite candy, drink, stuff animal, canvas with her favorite quote on it, etc.

Then day 2 could be all about the sorority so you can curate a basket full of your sorority’s letters on t-shirts, canvases, accessories, etc.

And then the final day of baskets is again is themed your “Little’s favorites.”

How to pick the best items to put in your little’s baskets

Hopefully, you have already met your sorority Little and have gotten to know her well enough to know basic things she likes such as her favorite restaurant, candy, animal, color(s), TV show, etc.

You may also receive a form that was filled out by your soon-to-be-little of different things she likes to help you brainstorm sorority little gift ideas for her.

However, if you are stuck on what to get your sorority little you can always anonymously text her through a texting app, look at her Facebook and Instagram accounts, browse YouTube for videos on “what I got my sorority little,” and of course use this list of 101 sorority little gift ideas to spark inspiration.

At the end of the day, though, your new sorority Little will be so excited to finally know who you are.

And she is going to be so fortunate she got you as a Big!

I wouldn’t stress out too much about what to get your sorority Little as long as you are genuine and thoughtful about what you gift your sorority Little.
