Letter from the Recruitment Chair
As I go through my day to day life, a frequent question that I encounter is that of “Why did you join a sorority?”
The more I think about this question, the more I have come to realize that a sorority is so much more than the tangible things. It’s more than the t-shirts with letters that slowly fill your closet, and it’s more than a small pin or colored ribbon. But rather, what these items represent; the things we can’t always see.
Sisterhood is empowering one another to reach our highest potentials, and committing to supporting each other every step of the way. Sisterhood is creating authentic relationships with those around you, and holding them close. Sisterhood is serving the community to create positive change. Sisterhood is doing what you say you will do, and enabling those around you to do the same. Sisterhood is living your values and ritual throughout your daily life, and your interactions with all you meet. Sisterhood is challenging one another to learn and grow as we journey through life.
To quote a poem written to Pi Chapter years ago, “(Sisterhood) is both giving and receiving. But, especially, it’s always believing.” By giving of myself to my chapter, and even more importantly the women who fill it, I have received so much knowledge, empowerment, love, and endless opportunities to grow in return; all of which I now have the opportunity to share with you.
I am so incredibly lucky to serve in a position that allows me to share what I have found within my chapter, and the Greek community as a whole, with so many incredible women, and in turn help them to find their forever home and begin their own journey of growth as a woman.
Sigma Love and Mine,
Membership Recruitment Director, 2018.
