Why I Went Greek
I come from a really small town, so when I came to GW I wanted to find a community to replicate that closeness. Going through recruitment was one of the best decisions I’ve made during my time at GW because it lead me to my Sigma Kappa sisters who are all strong, intelligent, empowered women. To me, Sigma Kappa is more than just wearing letters and going to formals— it’s my best friends, my family, and my home away from home.
Coming from the North East where Greek life is rarely talked about, I wanted to become a part of something new, and to be involved in a community. Sigma Kappa has given me a family to turn to and I have met the most amazing girls who motivate me and who I look up to. Plus they always keep me smiling!
Joining the Greek community here at GW was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It welcomed me with open arms, introduced me to many of my best friends, and continues to give back to me as I progress through my college career. It has given me internships on Capitol Hill, friends to hold my crutches or do my grocery shopping for me when I break my foot, and countless memories. I truly cannot wait to welcome more new members into both Sigma Kappa and the Greek community as a whole.
I grew up in a very insular small town just north of New York City. The people that I graduated high school with were nearly the same as those with whom I started pre-K. By the end of my last year at home, I was unbelievably excited to come to college to meet exciting, fascinating, new people. When I went through recruitment as a freshman, I wasn't sure that I would end up committing to any chapter. I was more in the mentality of, "Well, let's just see what happens." Fortunately, I made it through all four rounds of recruitment and ended up accepting my bid from Sigma Kappa. Though it may sound like a cliche, joining SK was one of the best decisions that I could have made for myself as a young'un. I met an incredible group of women who are now some of my best friends in the world, have a Greek family full of smart, passionate women, and am able to participate in philanthropic activity that truly matters. To all incoming freshmen, I urge you to consider going Greek!
I went Greek because I wanted to find a group of strong, loving women to look up to. One of the most rewarding parts of going Greek has been being able to give back to younger sisters, remembering how thankful I am for the sisters who have guided me.
