Dear Potential New Members,


I am so grateful to be given the opportunity to be your Vice President of Recruitment. 


Being in AEPhi has given me unforgettable experiences that I can’t imagine my life without, and I can’t wait to help you all find that. Though going through recruitment was a whirlpool of overwhelming and scary feelings, AEPhi turned those feelings into love and comfort instead. The moment I walked into AEPhi for the first time, I knew I was home. I have never felt so comfortable being in one place before, it’s hard to even leave it sometimes. I am forever appreciative of the love and support AEPhi has given me in such a scary process, and I want to guide you all in the same way I was. 


During recruitment, it is so important to have an open mind and listen to your heart. Having a place to call home away from home is such a surreal experience. Being surrounded by sisters whom I know I can lean on and fill me with love and support each day is my “why AEPhi”. I hope I can help you find your “why AEPhi” or your own home away from home <3


Good luck with the process of recruitment and I wish you all the best

Dear Potential New Members,

There are no words to describe how excited I am to guide you through your specialized new member process. My job as Vice President of New Member Education, or Phi Mom, is to teach you the ins and outs of our sorority that has been loved and cared for by so many generations of sisters. I am beyond excited to welcome you to our little house on the corner and share all the love this home has shared with me over the past 2 years. 


Before running home on Bid Day I had no idea what to expect. No one in my family has ever been in a sorority and I grew up with a younger brother, never having a sister. I never knew how important having a sister was until college, a time when many things in my life were changing. Aephi provided me with 200+ sisters, the most amazing Pham, and my future bridesmaids who I know will be in my life forever. This chapter has brought me memories that will last a lifetime and a home I know I will always be able to come back to. 


I am honored to be your New Member Educator, and I am so excited to meet and get to know each and every one of you when you run home on Bid Day. I can promise you that when you step into this house you will feel the love, comfort, and support needed to help you through this transition. The women in this chapter, all unique in their own ways, are what makes our sisterhood so strong and special. My hopes for all of you are that you all b find the people who make you smile, pursue things that help you grow, and do what is best for yourself always.

I am SO excited to get to meet you all and be your first welcome into the Member Class of 2022 for this wonderful chapter, Alpha Epsilon Phi.
