Me in a sorority… not exactly the first thing I thought about when I left high school, but now I cannot imagine my life without being in Phi Sigma Sigma. Phi Sig has brought me tears, happiness, sadness, and laughter that cannot be replaced by any other organization or group of people. Joining Phi Sig was the best thing that could have happened to me my second semester at IUS. No, I did not go through formal recruitment; however, I still got to experience the excitement and thrill of joining a sorority.
Greek life has taught me how to be a leader. My first semester in, my sisters gave me the strength and trust I previously did not have and they elected me Sisterhood and Sunshine Chairman. Only a few months in and I am already in charge of creating fun and spreading happiness! Over the years I picked up a couple more positions such as Sisterhood Development Chairman Assistant, Campus Relations, Membership Recruitment Chairman, Member at Large, and currently hold the position of Archon (aka President).
But leadership skills weren’t the only thing I gained from Phi Sig in my four years. I’ve also been able to gain numerous close bonds with both active sisters and alumni. I am honored to be a Big to not one, but two Littles (April and Megan) who have helped me grow into a better person. My best friend Kia and I joined together and she recently went alum. I know our bond will never be broken and I owe a lot of that to Phi Sig. I know that when I leave the Epsilon Chi chapter of Phi Sigma Sigma at IUS, I will have another home to go to. Phi Sig offers an alumni chapter where Phi Sigs can continue their leadership through service, lifelong learning, and inclusiveness. If I were to tell you of all the benefits of going Greek, I would have to publish a novel. Just trust that Greek life, sorority life, will change your life for good and for the better.
