I’m Kaitlin Porter and a proud member of the Sigma Kappa Zeta Alpha chapter at Indiana University Southeast. I am starting my senior year where I am double majoring in Public Relations and Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Communications.
Going into college, I can honestly say I was the stereotypical person who thought Greek Life was where girls paid to have friends. After learning more, I realized that Greek Life was where strong, independent, smart and talented women came together to become something bigger than themselves. I encourage women of all majors, backgrounds, ethnicities, and ages to go Greek.
I rushed my sophomore year and found a home in Sigma Kappa. My sisters have motivated me to earn two degrees, gain over 200 services hours by myself last academic school year, work two jobs, pay my dues all while still be able to have time to breathe.
I take pride in the philanthropic work done by all Greek women. In my short two years as a Sigma Kappa member, I have participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which benefits our main philanthropy of Alzheimer’s Research. During the past years I have helped raise over one million dollars for Women’s Alzheimer’s Research alone. Being apart of something so major has given me great pride in the work that college aged women can achieve.
Going Greek is something I will never regret. I am beyond proud to leave my legacy and hope that each and every one of you find a place to call home.
Panhellenic Council members, recruitment counselors, and other sorority women in our Greek community will be blogging throughout the summer months to help potential members prepare for recruitment.
