Letter From Membership Vice President
Coming to Kent State University in the fall of 2015 was the start of many new exciting adventures for me. I always had an interest in going through recruitment before I came to Kent, and I was also obsessed with Alpha Xi Delta before I even met anyone in the chapter. Fast forward three years, and my passion, love, and excitement to be a member of Alpha Xi Delta-Beta Tau hasn’t changed a bit! I’m truly honored to be Membership Vice President of this chapter, and I can’t wait to see what this year’s recruitment has in store!
I was one of those girls who registered for recruitment an hour before the deadline and was kind of thrown into the process a little last minute, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I tried so hard to stay open-minded throughout recruitment, but I knew I wanted to be in AXID and every conversation I had was so meaningful and genuine. Every day during the recruitment process when we would get our card of where we were going next I would almost cry when I saw that Alpha Xi Delta was on it.
On Bid Day, I was able to run home to over 200 women who were so excited to welcome me to their chapter and sisterhood. From then on out I gained over 200 friends who love, support, and lift me up when I’m having a good or bad day. I have changed 100% for the better since joining this amazing organization, and I’m so lucky to be a part of it.
We are a very diverse chapter with sisters who have all different interests and hobbies. The women in this chapter truly inspire me with their passion for Alpha Xi Delta and Autism Speaks. My sisters are some of my best friends, roommates, and future bridesmaids. They are there to pick you up from class when it’s pouring outside, go on a late night food run/coffee date, vent/cry to, and support you throughout your years at Kent. I truly don’t know where I would be or who I would have become without Alpha Xi Delta-Beta Tau. This chapter has helped me realize my potential, and I hope you are able to find an organization that helps you do the same!
The sisters of Alpha Xi Delta encourage you to Go Greek so you can find your home away from home and your people just like we all did! Kent State University is a large campus and joining Alpha Xi Delta made KSU feel a lot smaller/comfortable for me. I encourage you to take a chance and go through formal recruitment because it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
If you ever have any questions about the recruitment process or honestly anything please feel free to reach out to me!
