Coming into college, Greek life was not something I had my heart set on, it was more of a passing thought than anything else. However, one of my friends that I knew in Greek Life suggested that I join Alpha Nu Omega, and I figured “why not give it a try?” Little did I know, this decision would change my life in a way that I never expected. With Alpha Nu Omega, since we were so small the semester I joined, I got to know the guys on a more personal level, and they became like a second family to me. After my first semester (Fall 2018) in ANΩ, I started to branch out more by going to the Greek Office, and through that I’ve met so many amazing people that I would like to believe may be lifelong friends. The community that Greek Life represents at UMD is unlike any other I have experienced, and as a community we help each other, UMD, and the surrounding area with our various events. Not only have I become a part of a great community, but I have also had the privilege of getting to experience a leadership role as well. Because of Greek life, coming back to campus after summer break felt like a breath of fresh air, it felt like home.
