What is your favorite thing about serving as Epsilon Zeta's president?
My favorite thing about being President is just the honor in itself of leading this amazing group of women we have in Alpha Chi! I’m so thankful to play a part in bringing all of our uniquely different women together in one place for friendship and fellowship. It’s been such a fun experience so far, and I absolutely love every second! It's the biggest privilege to be able to serve these ladies!
What are you most looking forward to in the fall?
This fall I am most looking forward to meeting our new members! After serving as New Member Educator last year, the incoming new members of Alpha Chi hold a very special place in my heart! I love that entirely new adventure they get to experience and I can’t wait to welcome the new gals into our sweet sisterhood! We just have so many exciting things to look forward to this upcoming fall semester!
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is definitely my oldest sister Rebekah. She is the smartest, kindest, most humble person I have ever known. She is by far my best friend and biggest mentor. I am inspired by her drive and dedication to pursue anything she sets her mind to! Even though she was a majorette, Alpha Chi, and Honors Student at the University of Alabama--she was my biggest cheerleader when I made the decision to attend Auburn University. God’s love is so evident in her and she has impacted my life more than she knows! I just hope to be half the woman she has grown to be!
What is your favorite memory from Alpha Chi?
My favorite memory from Alpha Chi most definitely has to be the Junior Cruise my pledge class went on this past spring break! We had THE BEST time just goofing around and spending time together for an entire week cruising to the Bahamas! We shared so many laughs, a thousand random dance parties, one too many karaoke concerts, a bottle of aloe vera, an ice-cold snorkeling experience, and an embarrassing amount of trips to the all you can eat buffet! We all grew so much closer together and I am so thankful for such an amazing group of friends! ILYSM PC14!
What are your plans after graduation?
My plans after graduation are still pretty undecided. All I know is that whatever I do, I want to be able to serve those less fortunate than I am. I have a passion for helping others and I’d love the opportunity to do international mission work after graduation! I know the Lord has a bigger plan for me than I could ever come up with myself. I’m keeping a very open mind and am excited to see what He has in store for my future!
As we transition into the summer, we'd love to share some highlights from our spring semester!
Pizza Pie with Alpha Chi
Alpha Chi supports Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention as our national philanthropy. Each semester, our VP of Philanthropy and her team work hard to plan events to raise money for our cause. For the first time this year, we held Pizza Pie with Alpha Chi! Guests could enjoy all-you-can-eat pizza and drinks! All profits benefitted the Domestic Violence Intervention Center in Opelika. We had a great turn out and raised close to $8,000 for the DVIC!
Socials and Formal
This semester we enjoyed our War Damn America, Alpha Heartbreakers, St. Patrick's Day, Rhyme Without Reason and Rave socials. This year's Red Carnation ball was special because we celebrated Epsilon Zeta's 50th year at Auburn with current members and alumni!
Six Flags Sisterhood Day
We are so proud of our Greek Sing dancers for winning third place in this year's competition! "Alpha Spice" was incredible! Congratulations to our choreographers, Kate Dorsten and Shelby Andrews, for all of their hard work in creating this fabulous dance!
We are so proud of all our Alpha Chi graduates of 2017! We can't wait to see all the things they accomplish as they take their next big step! We will miss them all dearly and cherish their legacy in our chapter.
We hope everyone has a wonderful summer, and we cannot wait to see you all back for #aurec17!
