When entering college many students have fantasies of joining Greek organizations and other groups that are meant to encourage unity among people that share a common interest. One being that in the world of colligate cheerleading, holds a “mock” sorority, named Cheer Phi. Cheer Phi makes naive cheerleaders believe it represents the true essence of sisterhood, team work and leadership every quality a great cheerleading squad holds. However, in reality despite a spectator’s point of view so far my opinion opposes those values indefinitely.

Starting from the introduction to the relationships currently held with the fellow cheer squad; also known as cheer try-outs. My enthusiasm for wanting to be a CAU panther cheerleader curved my ability to judge characters during the first days of rehearsal. But once the final verdict came to


be on the roster for the squad for the upcoming season, as if the facade of benevolent role models had diminished, thus revealing the true dominating alliances that quickly became apparent. It became a rivalry of “new “girls vs.

“old” girls with me being herded into the inferior group.The returning members having the upper hand in any cheer decision. Being that they have more knowledge of the material making the “old” girls far more qualified to be in their position. This gives them the leverage to mistreat and in many cases blatantly disrespect the new members as strengthening exercises. Hazing is the true word for it.

As the year progressed I became accustomed to the tight nit ship that was run by cheer phi. But to my surprise there was a turn of events. After our second football game the cheer captain warmed the

frozen grimaced lump in her chest, where her heart should be.She asked the whole team if they wanted to go out to a party so we can bond. I must admit I was taken aback but her sudden change of heart.

To me her out of the blue interest in the new girls stunned me. Nevertheless I chose not to go simply because I had no desire so associate myself with such fraudulent females. As the season progressed I noticed that the team was getting closer with the exception of me. As if I had unconsciously alienated myself from the squad. But no matter what I did I couldn’t shake the quasi -mental abuse that I had endured from cheer phi earlier on.

No one likes to feel like the black sheep. But being a rebel was embedded in my DNA since birth. After all the separation, stress, and burdens of my financial obligations. I had contemplated quitting the team. I figured that if I didn’t want to be a part of cheer phi and if I couldn’t afford being on the team then why bother. One of the cheer phi members overheard me discussing my plan to the coach .

I immediately got defensive and was silent the whole practice thinking that they were happy that I was leaving. The next day I arrived to practice on time only to find all the members were there already.I assumed that they were conducting cheer phi business. Practice went on as usual with me letting my mind hover over my body as if I was watching a flashback of my life. When practice ended we huddled up

and chanted the words we always do.

”I believe in myself, I believe my squad with that we shall succeed”. Before we dispersed the paused and everyone looked at me, all of a sudden the squad turned towards me and the captain handed me a white envelope. I thought it was some sort of joke. I was conjugating me reactions in my head.

I opened the enveloped.My vision quickly became as foggy as a glass window in a steam room and my chilled face was accompanied with warm tear drops dancing off my cheeks in unison. I was handed $500 dollars raised by cheer phi covering my expenses thus keeping me on the team. I responded with “why did you guys help me I’m not even in cheer phi? ”the coach responded you were inducted into cheer phi as soon as you said, “I believe in myself, I believe in my squad with that we shall succeed”…… that’s what cheer phi really stands for. CHEER PHI……………RAH!!!
