Dear Potential New Members,
Recruitment is such a roller coaster of emotions between the outfits, the makeup, meeting dozens of new friends and everything in between. Even though it's extremely overwhelming, it's important to remember that everything happens for a reason.
When I went through recruitment, I had no idea what to expect. I knew it was overwhelming and scary, but I could have never imagined the impact one chapter and 200+ girls could do for me. When I walked into AEPhi for the first time, I could feel the love and support from all the sisters in the house. The girls who rushed me were extremely welcoming and made me feel at home right away. The conversations I had in AEPhi were so welcoming and natural, like we have been friends for years. I couldn't have felt more comfortable and more at home than I did in that moment and those conversations made me realize that this would become my home.
The most important thing to remember when going through recruitment is to have an open mind and follow your heart. You want to be built up and pushed to be the best version of yourself each and every day and be in a house that is meant for you. Today, I am on the 2020 executive board and I have the greatest circle of friends and sisters to lean on. I have all my AEPhi sisters to thank for that.
I feel so at home with my phi's and I hope you all find something as special and warm as I did!
Good luck with recruitment!
Vice President of Recruitment
Dear Potential New Members,
Growing up I knew I wanted to be in a sorority and, with my aunt being in AEPhi at UF, this was something I always kept in the back of my mind. She always talked about the memories she made and bonds she created to last her a lifetime. This was something I looked forward to when I grew up.
That being said, it is a privilege and honor to hold the position of New Member Educator. I cannot wait to welcome all of you home to a place I like to call home away from home. It is here in the Alpha Tau chapter where I have made my forever friends. I am ecstatic to help our newest pledge class create these same connections. Every girl in AEPhi is valued and each sister stands out in their own special way. Not only are we there for each other during the most exciting times in our lives, but we are also there for one another to cheer each other up during the downs. Each girl in our chapter shines in their own way whether that be holding a leadership position in an organization, holding a position in AEPhi, or doing community service. I would love to help the newest PC become acclimated to campus as well as share the unconditional love I have for our sisterhood. I cannot be more excited to meet PC ‘19 and I am counting down the days until I get to meet all of you! The sisters of AEPhi will welcome you with open arms and I am so excited to see what you will all bring to our amazing chapter!
