College is a completely new experience for me. I’m just a little freshman who had never spent a day away from my mom till now. I was born and raised in Broken Arrow and I never really strayed from home. It has definitely been a tough adjustment for me, but I am so lucky to have found a home here in Norman.
I was so scared to go through recruitment, but I am so glad I did because Alpha Phi became my new home. I am going to be honest, it was not love at first sight; however, after philanthropy day, I knew Alpha Phi was where I belonged. Nothing brings you closer to a group of girls than really seeing their hearts and how much serving meant to them. Serving others is just something that makes my heart happy, so in that moment I knew.
Alpha Phi has brought me a sisterhood that I could not survive college without. I have met so many incredible girls that I probably would never know if I was not apart of this sisterhood. I am apart of something that is so much bigger than myself.
Being apart of Alpha Phi brought me a pledge class of one hundred and two beautiful ladies. I have one hundred and two new sisters that will have my back (and that is not even counting the other two hundred sophomore, junior, and senior girls).
Another blessing that Alpha Phi gave me was a big. Having a big is pretty much having an honorary big sister that is stuck with you forever. It is a great feeling to know that you have a big sister that is there for you no matter what. I have always been the big sister, so it is great having an older girl that is there to look out for me and to just make me feel loved.
Tonight is initiation and that means that I will officially be an Alpha Phi for forever and always. I am beyond excited to officially be a member of this incredible sisterhood. Thank you Alpha Phi for being my home away from home.
