VICE PRESIDENT MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT
Welcome to Cal Poly SLO Alpha Phi, Epsilon Chi Chapter! We are so excited to meet all of you this fall during the most anticipated event of the year, formal recruitment! As a freshman, I remember being excited but also nervous about coming to Cal Poly because it was going to be my first time being away from my home, my family, and my friends. Because of this, I signed up for recruitment in order to meet new people and to make this school with 24,000 people feel just a little bit smaller. While the recruitment process can be intimidating at first, it really works and it is so worth it at the end when you get to run home to the place that feels most like home; for me, that home was Alpha Phi.
I was in true admiration of every single girl I met at Alpha Phi during recruitment. Each girl I spoke to was friendly, fun, genuine, and respectful- all characteristics that I look for in my friends. Although I could see unique qualities shine through from each individual, it was very apparent to me every time I went how bonded these girls truly were by their friendships, loyalty, and love for one another. I knew Alpha Phi was the place for me because the stories and friendships the girls would share with me were exactly what I wanted for myself. I can happily say now that I have made my own memories in Alpha Phi that will last me a lifetime, I have found my future bridesmaids and I have gotten more out of being a part of this sisterhood than I could have ever imagined possible.
My goal as Vice President of Membership Recruitment is to help each and every potential new member find the place that feels most like home to them, to find the place where they feel comfortable and don’t need to change themselves to fit in, and lastly to find the place that will give them those lifelong memories and friendships Alpha Phi has given to me because it is such a special thing that every single person going through the recruitment process deserves to find!
My college experience would have been completely different if I did not go through formal recruitment my freshman year. Three years ago I would never have imagined I would be in the place I am right now and it is all thanks to the Panhellenic community and my 200+ sisters!
I can’t express enough how excited we all are to meet each and every one of you and for you to discover more about our chapter and what it means to be an Alpha Phi this fall!
