#leanonme There is truly no other place where you can undoubtedly and unapologetically be yourself. The people that surround you will be there to lean on through the best and the worst times being the support system needed while away at school. You can always find a home and someone to lean on in the house with the red doors.
Throughout my past three years in college, one of my greatest pleasures has been being a member of Alpha Omicron Pi. From the moment I walked through those red doors over three years ago, I have felt an overwhelming feeling of love, passion, and comfort. I can now wholeheartedly say that I have met people who have changed my life for all the right reasons. This chapter has given me lasting friendships, a chance to grow, and a home away from home. Each day Alpha Omicron Pi has allowed me to be the best, and truest version of myself. As each woman goes through recruitment, I hope that they have the opportunity to run home to the house that makes them feel the most- trust me, you’ll know it when it happens. I’m proud of the person I have become because of the people who have been by my side these past 3 years. I would not trade all the experiences, and memories that I have had for the world, and I cannot wait for more women to find their home as I am lucky enough to have found AOII.
Go Panhellenic & as always, Go Gators!
