What has my Greek experience meant to me? I don’t even know where to begin.

Some people identify themselves by their ethnicity, religion, fashion sense, or even music, but after these past four years in Greek Life I can honestly say I identify myself as a Greek woman. Not because I like the tshirts, the mixers, or the supposed stereotypes that comes with my chapter or the community as a whole, but because Greek Life stands for everything I believe in. The past four years have been filled with friendship, service, career and personnel development, socials, scholarship, and campus activities. All of which have provided me with memories and experiences I wouldn’t have gotten elsewhere. Not only did Greek Life bring laughter, a packed social schedule, and a lot of familiar faces around campus, it brought me leadership and communication skills, life long bonds, and a sense of belonging here at the college. During my four years I was honored to serve on my Chapter’s Dream Team, take office as the New Member Educator, become the Chapter President, travel to my Chapter’s National Convention in Arizona, raise thousands of dollars for Make-a-Wish and much more. Those experiences not only helped me build my resume but also prepared me for life outside of college. In today’s world I find it hard to find a group of young adults who share the same passion of service, expectation of academic excellence, all while building friendships and having fun. Greek Life changed my life and I am excited to see what it has in store for me after college.
