VICE PRESIDENT MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT
Welcome to Cal Poly! We are always so excited to meet new Mustangs and welcome them into the Panhellenic community through the recruitment process. I understand that the formal recruitment process can be intimidating and stressful at times, but I promise you that 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 very similar to what 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.
The kindness, generosity, and friendship I experienced while at Alpha Phi is what drew me to it. 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. Especially through all the difficulties experienced in the past year due to COVID-19, I have valued my sisters’ support now more than ever, and that is something that I will cherish forever. We are optimistic about the fall quarter and despite having the past year in the online format know that whether fall is in-person or virtual, every new member will continue to experience the joy and excitement that comes with the new member process through events such as Bid Day, receiving a Big, Initiation, various sisterhood events, and many, many more. Now, as Vice President of Recruitment, my only goal is to help others find their home the same way I found mine.
