Dear Potential New Member,
Hello! My name is Vanessa Whitmore and I am this year’s Vice President of Recruitment for Pi Alpha Chi. I am so happy you’re interested in joining our sorority and becoming a part of the wonderful Greek system at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In my first year, I thought the only point of going to a university was to study and to develop leadership skills, but meeting girls from Pi Alpha Chi made me realize that I wasn’t taking advantage of all the opportunities UNL has to offer. People join the Greek system for many different reasons, but I joined because of our Catholic foundation and our pillars of citizenship, fellowship, leadership, and scholarship.
My decision to join Pi Alpha Chi was one of the most fruitful decisions I have made in college thus far. Reflecting on my time in Pi Alpha Chi, I have grown so much, and I am confident that I would not have the courage to be involved in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln community and thrive like I currently am without this organization. Much of my inspiration and courage draws from these authentic women I call my sisters, and I am so grateful that I have found my home at UNL with them. I think the best lesson I’ve learned from these women is that through all the things I’m learning, I must hold onto and grow my faith, and not forget to have fun.
As you undertake the search for your home at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I hope that you keep an open mind and heart during your week of recruitment. Look for women that empower you and inspire you to reach your goals. Seek women who have similar values as you do, who will support you to become who you envision yourself to be, and with whom you will build lifelong friendships. The women of the Alpha Chapter of Pi Alpha Chi are excited for you to find a community that has all of this. We look forward to meeting you in August!
PAX and Love,
Vice President of Recruitment
Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins.
