CONVERSATION TIPS FOR SORORITY RECRUITMENT | Rachel Silva
 
14:17
My first video was much larger of a success than I thought it'd be, and I got a lot of great questions from you guys on my personal experience/ styling advice/ tips for getting into a good house that I loved talking to each of you about. Considering that conversation and talking points was one of the subtopics that had yet to be thoroughly discussed by any previous YouTuber, I thought that I would give you my take having been a recruiter and asked these questions. Like I said, I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel, so this will be my only other advice video because I believe that everyone else has covered the other topics pretty well on here. I have linked below other recruitment videos that I think have done an accurate job answering other common questions and giving advice based on other girls' experiences. GOOD LUCK and as always, never hesitate to hit me up if you wanna talk specifics! I am a Delta Zeta at San Diego State for anyone who doesn't want to stalk that far for an answer :).

SOLO TRIP TO PARIS TRAVEL VLOG | Eiffel Tower, Catacombs of Paris + Arc de Triomphe
 
05:55
As the semester begins to reach a close, I realized just how many days off that I let go to waste. I decided that a cancelled class on Thursday was a sign from God himself, and booked a day trip to Paris solely for the pictures and views of the Eiffel Tower. I'm in love with this city, and hope to make a return at least one more time before I go back to the United States!

HOW SORORITY RECRUITMENT WORKS (SDSU) | Rachel Silva
 
13:32
-EDIT. PLEASE READ!- I filmed this video prior to attending my sorority's polish week and did not know that Panhellenic changed some of its terminology until after this video was well along its way to success. For the sake of preventing confusion, I will correct my verbage here. :) - Sororities make "selections" and vote as a chapter. We do not r̶a̶n̶k̶ girls (and each chapter has a different process!) - We refer to different sororities as "chapters," and not h̶o̶u̶s̶e̶s̶ (my b!). This is because not every sorority does/ needs to have a chapter house. - We hold recruitment "events," and not p̶a̶r̶t̶i̶e̶s̶. -END OF EDIT- I would just like to remind you all again that every university's Panhellenic association runs its recruitment process differently, so the themes and time period that my university's recruitment is held over will not be the same as (most likely) any other school. Hopefully this helps you out a little bit, and understanding the general gist of how recruitment is laid out encourages you to go Greek! Like I said, if you have any questions then please feel free to comment or DM me. I'd love to talk to you!

Whaaaaaddup YouTube, ya girl is back after a VERY stressful semester! Although I put in the work to film this video 3 months ago, I was only able to edit it recently. I love vlogging because of its informality, and thought that this was the best route for my last formal recruitment. The rest of my recruitment series is linked down below and as always, feel free to chat with me on Instagram if you have any questions! I'm still getting DMs from y'all and it's super cool to see how far my videos have reached.

There are WAY more differences between American and French culture than my initially sheltered self believed. Welcome to a miniseries within the miniseries, where I discuss some of the largest changes that have had me #shook.

STORYTIME: ROBBED TWICE IN FRANCE | Rachel Silva
 
10:55
Bonjour, YouTube. My name is Rachel Silva and today I'm going to tell you about the moment(s) that had me the most #shook while abroad in Europe... the time I got stolen from two days in a row. More cases of robbery and assault have also recently turned up in my city since these incidents, so at least I am able to say that I was the first tragedy!

HOW TO STAY ORGANIZED IN COLLEGE | Rachel Silva
 
07:29
Apologies for the late upload, but I just had my last first week of college! After reworking my own schedule, I'm changing my upload days to Sat/Sun for sure. Organization and formatting are things that I have been nitpicky over since the beginning of time, and keeping myself in check is definitely what has led to my college success. I hope seeing my schedule and how I organize my time helps you! Follow me on Instagram!: https://www.instagram.com/rachelsilva96/ Business Inquiries: [email protected]

MADRID TRAVEL VLOG | Rachel Silva
 
06:17
For those newer to my channel, last spring semester I was abroad in France. This channel was originally created to host all of my traveling content! Up until today, I have been having problems with my editing software. If you were to watch any of those travel vlogs, you'll notice that the quality is low and footage lags in random places. I had assumed that this was an unavoidable problem caused by filming with my iPhone. Well Y'ALLLLL, I was wrong. All of that footage now feels like a waste. Anyways, I still had one trip left that I've been procrastinating for the past year, so here's some superior editing quality of my trip to Spain.

I am so sorry for being so M.I.A. lately, but I have spent the past week in the library trying to learn a semester's worth of material for all of my finals! Here is the follow up to my storytime video, which I will link below, that highlights all of the precautionary measures that I have adopted for travelling and everyday life in Europe as a result of... well... being robbed twice. I hope that these helped someone out there and if you have any more ideas to add to the list, let's get a conversation started! I'd love to up my security.

GREECE TRAVEL VLOG | Mykonos + Athens
 
06:37
After a month's hiatus, I am happy to announce that I'm back in the U.S.! I didn't spare myself any time to rest and went straight back to work, which is why I have been unable to video edit until now. I realized while sorting through all of my footage that I had failed to record an outro for all of my remaining videos, but oh well! Here's a bit of what I experienced in Greece.

It only took me 5 weeks to readjust to San Diego life and get way too lazy to make another video. So hi, YouTube, I'm surprisingly back. For context, we fell for a tourist trap and rented one of those family surreys in Coronado (a really bougie island). This is what happened.

PARIS TRAVEL DIARY | Rachel Silva

For my first weekend alone in France, some new study abroad friends and I decided to spend the weekend in Paris (given that we live 45 minutes away). I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of the Eiffel Tower, Monet's Water Lilies, and Sacre-Coeur. I can't wait to spend more time in Paris!

BID DAY 2016 | @deltazetasdsu
 
04:03
Sorority life seems to be appealing to those who aren't a member, so I thought that I'd film a bit of my experience. I didn't realize that I'd face so many copyright issues when I made the video, so I hope it doesn't cause any viewing problems. More to come, and welcome to my channel! If you have any questions about the mystery surrounding Greek life and recruitment, hit my line. I'm always down to talk college life!

EUROPE TRAVEL DIARY | Glasgow, Brussels + Amsterdam
 
03:07
Whoever decided that having spring break in the middle of February was a good idea should be fired. The entire week was filled with rain, strong winds, and cold weather, but we powered through! To clarify, I went to Glasgow, Amsterdam, and Brussels, over the course of 10 days. Of course, you can't capture everything on camera, so I guess you're just gonna have to come to Europe and see for yourself! ;) SOCIAL MEDIA: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/rachelsilva96/ VSCO: http://vsco.co/rachelsilva96 Tumblr: http://in-effable.tumblr.com/
