I am Shelby Lucas, the Panhellenic Vice President over Recruitment. I am looking forward to recruitment this fall so much! The Gamma Chi’s, chapters, and myself have been hard at work to make this experience one of a kind for you. I hope that you’re looking forward to this memorable weekend as much as I am! I’d love to share my experience in what being in a sorority has given me. When I came to IUS, I learned very quickly that if you didn’t get involved in something you would get caught up in the routine of going to class, back to your lodge and go home every weekend so I started looking into my options. I am constantly trying to better myself, take advantage of every opportunity and find a way to give back. I found this and so much more in being a sorority woman. I found a group of girls who would cheer me on during the good times in my life and would support me through the bad, I found a group of woman who were giving back to their philanthropy and finding ways to give back in the community, I found a group that I really fit in with. In all of these, I found my home. Now I look forward every year (this is my second year on the Panhellenic side of recruitment) to helping new women find their forever home and a group of women that supports them the way that my chapter supports me!
To the girl who’s counting down the days to recruitment, I PROMISE I’M JUST AS EXCITED AS YOU ARE! To the girl who doesn’t think Greek Life is for her, how do you know until you try? To the girl who’s afraid she won’t fit in, I was you and look where I’m at now!
Going Greek has been the best opportunity that I’ve ever taken advantage of!
Lots of Greek Love,
Panhellenic VP of Recruitment
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.
