DITL of a Wildcat: Greek Edition

What clubs and organizations are you involved in?

I’m Molly Krantz, and I'm a member of the Speech and Debate Team; the Order of Omega; the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity; and President of the Panhellenic Executive Board.


Why did you get involved with Greek life at the University of Arizona?

I’m the first person in my immediate family to go Greek, so I really just wanted to see what Greek life was all about.

When I finally went through recruitment, I fell in love with all of the incredible chapters and I had such an amazing time getting to know other women in the Panhellenic community, learning about what values chapters hold, and all the amazing philanthropic work they do. Everyone was so welcoming and before I even joined a chapter, I felt like I had already found a community of people to call my friends.


What is a typical day in your life like?

When I get up in the morning, I try to drink a glass of water, put on sunscreen, and go walk my amazing dogs.

I usually take a break for lunch right around noon. My favorite things to eat are fruits like blueberries and peaches, and soups (even in the summer).

With recruitment coming up in August, my role on the Panhellenic Executive Board is picking up in the most amazing way possible. I usually have around 3-5 meetings a week with calls and texts in between with my Executive Board. A big focus within my role now is recruitment. With the help of my enthusiastic and hardworking Recruitment Team and Executive Board, we are always so excited to do these day-to-day tasks. 

I will admit that I’m a bit of a night owl, so I usually get to sleep around midnight. I love unwinding by watching one of my favorite TV shows or I will just hang out with my dogs. I also do enjoy journaling occasionally as I find it's very beneficial for me to reflect on what happened during the day.


What are the biggest benefits of going Greek?

Being part of the Panhellenic community comes with many benefits. We release multiple scholarships each year, we hold Philanthropy fundraisers throughout the year that benefit a variety of communities, we hold educational health and safety events for our members, we have opportunities for personal growth, and opportunities for leadership development like being part of the Panhellenic Executive Board. 

We also have events through the year to continue to foster our Panhellenic sisterhood such as “sister sororities” where we pair up chapters to do fun activities together throughout the semester. I always say that the more you put into Greek Life, the more you will get out of it, which has proven to be true time and time again.


What are some misconceptions about the Greek community that students should know?

New students may not know what Greek life truly is but the stereotypical “sorority women” on TV shows and movies couldn’t be farther from the truth. In the Panhellenic community, we are values-based organizations that focus on a wide variety of values such as personal development, leadership, friendship, and service.


Any advice on selecting a fraternity/sorority? 

My best and most cheesy advice when it comes to recruitment is trust the process. If you do decide to go through recruitment, I'm sure you will hear this over and over again, and it is so true. Don't let anyone influence your decision, because this is about you!


What are your post-graduation plans?

 I plan to attend law school – ideally in New York City. 


What is your favorite thing about being an Arizona Wildcat? 

The relationships I've built here. I have met some of the best people and have created lifelong friendships that I can't wait to see grow. I can confidently say that I've met the people who will be at my wedding, and I feel very grateful that Arizona has given me this opportunity!
