Why Should You Join Greek Life?
When I first went through recruitment, I was not sure if Greek life was for me. I had never been part of an organization like a sorority before, but Alpha Chi Omega made the choice easy for me. The women that I met were funny, welcoming, and so genuine. Three years later, I am still confident that I made the right decision. For any woman on the fence about going through formal recruitment; dive in and go for it. It is not a decision that you will have any regrets over, after meeting the wonderful women that make up our Panhellenic community.
As Vice President of New Member Education, I have the pleasure of being the woman to guide our new members and help find their place within Alpha Chi Omega. The new member period is exciting and can be overwhelming, but is so much fun. The bonds you create with your new member class give you the first feel of what our sisterhood is like. Three years later and the sisters in my member class are very close and I am so thankful I got to share the experience of the new member period with them.
I have grown so much through the influence of my sisters and the woman I am today is a completely different person from who I was when I started at Stetson. I have grown as a leader after holding two executive positions and as an individual because of the women I've met. I have made friends that will last a lifetime and these are women that I look up to and respect. The memories that I have made and experiences that I have had have made joining Greek life one of the best decisions I have made throughout my time here at Stetson. I cannot wait to meet the wonderful women we will welcome in the fall and am so excited to walk you all through your time as a new sister of Alpha Chi Omega.
