Sororities, often established to help women find a sense of community in male-dominated college campuses, have in some ways transformed into elite organizations that boast status and reputation. Girls work tirelessly to be desirable candidates, jump through hoops, and put up with hazing in hopes of being chosen as sister to a community of women who will help them advance both in their personal lives and their careers.

The BUST Spring Fling Craftacular is in the Village Voice this week! And it's complete with that super-sexy picture of our very own Callie Watts BUSTing a move at last year's gig.
