I always contemplated rushing the fall because I was unsure that as a first-generation minority student, I was going to find a place where I felt like I belonged. However, I was unaware of all the support, acceptance, and friendship that I was going to find at Kappa Alpha Theta. After rushing, I was exposed to sisterhood in a way stronger than I have ever seen before and have met many other women who have bettered my experience every day, even if it’s the simplest actions, they mean the most.
Kappa Alpha Theta has taught me that sisterhood manifests itself in the simplest ways. Whenever I need to go to the library at 1am to study for a final there is always a sister willing to come with so I’m not left walking alone at night, get a bagel the morning of an exam because its “good luck”, or anything else I know one of my sister will always be eager to support me. Even exchanging smiles across campus on my walks to class makes me feel accepted and supported.
I am grateful for every one of the women that I have gotten to know through the Panhellenic community and Kappa Alpha Theta who have shaped my first-year experience for the better. I’m glad I made the decision to go through recruitment as it has been more rewarding than I could ever imagine.
