Hi! I’m Justice Burda, Vice President of New Member Education for Sigma Kappa here at IUS!
When I first came to college, I knew I wanted to be a part of Greek life. I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself, to have a “home away from home”, and to be a part of a sisterhood that would support me through my college journey. Going through recruitment I saw the dedication to promoting the sorority experience from all the chapters on campus.
But I gained so much more than what I had expected when I joined Sigma Kappa. I am a part of a sisterhood bound together by a unique bond. Sigma Kappa has encouraged me to become the best version of myself. As Vice President of New Member Education I have the opportunity to share Sigma Kappa’s story, values, and mission. I have the chance to empower other women to be bold leaders in their lives. It is truly inspiring to be part of an organization that encourages women to be brave and passionate in their lives. Being a part of this sisterhood gives me the courage to become the person I’ve always wanted to be. My sisters are my allies, my cheerleaders, my mentors, and most importantly my closest friends.
Being a part of Sigma Kappa has motivated me to be a leader in every aspect of my life. The things I’ve learned as a member of a Greek organization will stay with me forever. As a member of Panhellenic, I have seen the impact sororities can make on young women’s lives. The value of the sorority experience is priceless. I honestly can’t imagine what my college experience would have been like without joining a sorority. In my sorority, I have found a place that motivates me to be the best sister, friend, student, and leader I can be. Going Greek will open many doors of opportunity for you. You will find your sisters, your home, and yourself.
Go Greek my ladies!!
