Thinker to Feeler… Already?

It has only been 24 hours into my first chapter visit, and I have already cried, laughed, made new friends, and realized that this job might transform me from a “thinker” into a “feeler,” as the LCs like to say. This moment of realization hit me as I sat in the Gamma Gamma chapter room among 50 women who were both my sisters, yet strangers. I had merely known these  women for a day, yet they flooded my heart with emotion as I listened to them speak about their Sigma Kappa journey, their love for our sorority, and their appreciation for one another. The raw emotion seemed to take everyone by surprise, during a very casual reading of a preference speech, yet somehow it was extremely refreshing to see how this organization that I am so proud to be a part of, and hold so true to my core, really does change lives.

This first visit really got me thinking about my preference story. Who was I four years ago? I have wanted to join a sorority since I was 10 years old, but was the original reason for loyalty, personal growth, service and friendship? As much as I would like to say yes, the truth is I just wanted to have friends who I shared an “official name” with. Now these values, four words I never realized fit together so perfectly until I joined Sigma Kappa, have become a standard I live my life by. I hold myself accountable to being a better person because of our ritual, because I have 152,000 sisters that span across the world.

Now as it is recruitment season, I am so excited to share my enthusiasm and hear so many more Sigma Kappa stories. Each one of us joined for different reasons, what are yours?

Love in Sigma Kappa,
