A MESSAGE FROM BROOKE
VICE PRESIDENT MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT
To anyone considering going through recruitment,
Do it. I understand that the formal recruitment process can be intimidating and stressful at times, but I promise you it's worth it. I remember coming to Cal Poly as a freshman, being away from my family for the first time in my life, and feeling the same feelings I’m sure a lot of you are experiencing right now. While those feelings are completely normal upon entering a school of over 24,000 people, it is important to find something that makes the campus feel smaller-–feel like home. And joining Greek Life is the best way to find that home away from home.
What first drew me to Alpha Phi was how diverse the chapter was. Every girl I talked to during formal recruitment was unique and possessed individual strengths and interests, but were all united by their friendship and admiration for one another. I immediately felt most comfortable within the doors of Alpha Phi because I knew that I did not have to change anything about myself in order to fit in. My one piece of advice to anyone going through recruitment is to pay attention to where you feel most yourself—that is how you know you have found your people.
As a third year member of Alpha Phi, my initial impressions of this sorority have been confirmed and surpassed many times over. The girls of this chapter are all intelligent, capable, driven women that push one another to be the best while offering unconditional support along the way. I have no doubt that the friendships I have formed in Alpha Phi will last a lifetime and the memories I have made through the years will be some that I cherish forever. Now, as Vice President of Recruitment, my only goal is to help others find their home the same way I found mine.
