Letter From Membership Vice President

Hi girlies!

I am so happy you’ve come across my little note! My name is Leesa Gierhan and I am so excited to welcome you this Fall. I know everyone here at Alpha Xi is more than thrilled to not only meet you, but to show you what Alpha Xi Delta means to us. I can’t begin to explain the whirlwind of emotions this week will be, but I can promise you it is all worth it in the end.

Alpha Xi Delta has shaped me into a woman I never expected to become. When you surround yourself with intelligent, inspired, hilarious, caring women – you become one, and that’s just what I have done throughout my college experience. When I think about the past few years, all I think about is the memories I’ve made with my sisters. Whether it was a spontaneous Target trip, a fro-yo date, or even a good ole Netflix binge session, I can honestly say I am and will always be at my best when I am with my best friends. There really is no better feeling than being accepted by women who are 100 percent different than you but 100 percent accepting of you. Our sisterhood is so genuine and unique that that trying to explain it to you right now is almost impossible. I just can’t wait to show you what I mean this Fall J

Looking back on my last few years, I remember being in your shoes. College is pretty scary at first and it’s an extremely challenging transition. But, as I transition into my third year of college I realize that the friendships and memories I have made are all due to Alpha Xi. Take this opportunity and make the most of it, as you are about to begin the best years of your life. Recruitment week is overwhelming, scary, and exciting, I won’t lie. But I hope that you find a place you feel happy, special, welcome, and comfortable - the way all Greek women should feel in their home away from home. We ALL deserve a strong support system, sisters who challenge and encourage us, and most importantly to feel loved and cared for. We all thank Alpha Xi Delta for giving us just that.

I wish you the best of wishes during the crazy week of recruitment. Just remember that this journey is about finding who you are and developing yourself into an amazing woman in the future. Be yourself and never forget who you are, and you will always find your way home.

I am so so so excited to meet you in a few short months :’)
