Letter from the Chapter
Dear Potential New Members,
In all seriousness, one year ago today if someone told me I would be the President of Sigma Kappa, I honestly probably would have looked at them and laughed. About a year ago, I was a vulnerable freshman who was just looking for a place to fit in at BU.
My first semester at BU was a challenging one to say the least; I came to college completely blind-sided by what it actually was going to be. I didn’t realize how difficult it was going to be for me to be away from home, my family, and most importantly my friends. I absolutely hated college and I kept telling myself this is not how it’s supposed to be. Soon came late October and I started to talk to my family about possibly transferring. Every night in October consisted of long, exhausting arguments with my parents and sleepless nights. I was stuck and for the first time in my life had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do.
Ultimately, as you can see, I decided to stay. I decided I would go through Formal Recruitment and give it one last shot. That decision, along with joining Sigma Kappa, was undoubtedly the best decision I have ever made for myself.
About a year has passed since the day I opened my Bid Night envelope, and I can confidently say, this has been the absolute best year of my life. Sigma Kappa has not only changed my college experience completely, but has helped me grow in ways I never even imagined.
This past year, I have met the most incredible women who I probably would have never gotten the chance to meet, if it wasn’t for Sigma Kappa. These women welcomed me with open-arms and each and every one of them went out of their way to get to know me. Something so special about this sisterhood is that the women of this Chapter inspire you to be the very best version of yourself. They help you believe in yourself and help you achieve things you would have never thought possible otherwise.
I honestly just went through Recruitment to find friends, but I ended up finding so much more than that. I found my home at Sigma Kappa. I found my best friends, I found my support system, I found something I was passionate about, and most importantly, I found myself. If it wasn’t for the support and encouragement of the women in this Chapter, I would absolutely not be where I am today.
To all potential new members, my biggest advice for you is to go through Formal Recruitment and give it a shot just like I did. Even if you are hesitant or think you are not the “sorority type”, I encourage you to try it out simply because there is no “sorority type”. The Greek community is comprised of some of the most diverse and driven women on campus and having the opportunity to meet them and even work with them is something I will forever be grateful for.
