This is a great artifact to describe my freshman year because when I received this small card, everything changed for me. This was the bid I received in January from Alpha Chi Omega, a formal invitation to join their sorority. Since joining Alpha Chi this semester, I have met so many new friends and met a ton of hard-working and intelligent women who truly care about me. I am so glad I made the decision to go through formal recruitment and I can honestly say my life is changed for the better. Even my friends noticed how much happier I’ve been this semester since I started spending time with these young women, and I am sure I’ll find much more joy through Alpha Chi in the years to come.
