*Editor’s Note: For anyone not involved in it, Greek Life can often seem like a world of its own. You might see members in togas, bow ties or ridiculous ’80s outfits hanging out at the bars on a Thursday night and wonder why they chose a college lifestyle so different than your own.

But his career in law has recently taken a turn to focus on Joy’s biggest passion, creating music.
I am a total non-DIY kind of girl. I am not artistic and I get frustrated with my attempts to make my room look girly and cute. However, I still am willing to give something the old college try and hope it turns out something like the Pinterest picture. Here’s a quick and simple way to display your favorite photos that won’t break the bank.
