Don’t Forget your Sister Slide!

The MITtens are coming! The MITtens are coming!

With the little Beta Lambdas on their way, we have less than a week to make sure that everything is absolutely perfect for when they join us! And what do the little Beta Lambdas need most of all? They need to meet you, and to do that, they need to know who you are!

The quickest way for them to get to know you super quick is by running through the sister slides & finding the girls with similar interests to them, but they can’t do that if you just have love notes left behind from gossip girl!

Updating your sister slide can take as long as you want it to. You can be super adorable and customize your background & font, or you can keep it basic just type in some information about yourself. Me? I was kind of lazy so I just copied and pasted my slide from last year and changed some key information (like that I’m now a senior and inactive due to my status as a part time student)

But if you’re starting from scratch, where do you even begin?!

One of my favorite sister slides…simple, classic & oh-so-Caroline!

Start with a picture of you. Try to find one that looks like you in real life where you can clearly see your face! If you have friends in your picture with you, make sure that we know which beautiful lady you are!

Straight and to the point, while also being beautiful (with just a touch of silliness!), just like Kelsey!

Add some fun details… easy things to include: your graduation year, hometown, major, hobbies/interests, a fun fact, and if you’re little hunting, include that too!

This girl DOES have everything! You can learn so much about Lauren, and it's all super easy to read!

Once you have the basics, add in your contact info! After all the little MITs see how amazing you are, they’ll want to know how to contact you and become your friend! Don’t feel obligated to include every single piece of contact information… add the things that you think are most important. Are you always texting? Add your phone number! Is email your thing? List your email address! Do you want to have all the new MITs add you on facebook? Make sure to let them know how to find you, especially if you use your middle name instead of your last name or you have crazy privacy settings.

One of the best parts about this is that you can see Alexa's beautiful face so clearly!

Now onto the fun stuff… Think about a background that speaks to you. If you love photography, make your background one of your favorite photos. If you have a lot of photos on your slide, try to keep your background simple. But as you add backgrounds & fun fonts, make sure it’s still easy to read!!

There are few sister slides with as much personality as this one. Jessica absolutely NAILED it!

My favorite slides are the ones where you can really feel the personality of the girl coming through. Let your personality shine, & your slide will be a real success!

Gamma love,
