This year, I am excited and honored to serve as the Vice President of Recruitment for the Panhellenic Council. I know how important recruitment is to the overall life and well-being of sorority life, so I am super passionate and excited about this position. This year I hope to get our Panhellenic Association back on track with policies, work with all the chapters who are participating in Continuous Open Bidding, and help improve all of the recruitment processes to make it a better experience for both PNMs and the chapters. I am also excited for the new position on the board this year, Recruitment Assistant. In the short time Shayan and I have been working together, we have already come up with so many great ideas we want to implement, and have worked together to split up this huge role and make it more manageable for both of us.
I joined a sorority my first semester of freshman year in 2017. I was really hesitant because I didn't have any friends coming into college and I didn't know what to expect. I always thought I would never join a sorority in high school, but after going through formal recruitment with my dorm neighbor, I learned it was the best decision I have ever made. Throughout formal recruitment I didn't know what to expect, but it was a really fun experience where I was able to talk to new people and make connections! Through the process of recruitment, I was able to find my new home and my support system.
In my organization, I have been able to meet my best friends, roommates, and have had the opportunity of holding a leadership position in my organization as well as on the Panhellenic Council! There are a lot of different reasons for people to stay in their sorority, but for me it has taught me to be more confident and have a voice on campus. My sisters always uplift me and help me when I need it, and this has made a huge impact on my collegiate career.
