HC: Why did you choose to attend UNH?

Kaycee: I chose to attend UNH because it was one of the only schools on the East Coast that offered Forensic Psychology as a major.

 

HC: What is your favorite part of UNH?

Kaycee: Greek life is definitely my favorite part.

 

HC: What sorority are you in?

Kaycee: I am newly elected as Tribune of Phi Sigma Sigma. Our philanthropy is the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation for school and college readiness which provides school supplies and scholarships for kids in need. Every fall, we do an event called Phi Sig Inferno, which is a day that teams compete in various obstacle courses. All proceeds go towards our philanthropy.

HC: What made you go out for recruitment?

Kaycee: My cousin was involved in Greek life when she was in college. She was always happy and brought her sisters around me. I got to see the bonds between her and her sisters and I realized I really wanted that too.

 

HC: Were you nervous? What helped you get through it?

Kaycee: I was incredibly nervous. I thought I was going to get sick and I kept falling in my heels. I got through it by being myself and talking to all of the sisters of the different organizations. After each night I became a lot more comfortable and I wasn’t so nervous.

 

HC: Tell us about the bond between you and your sisters

Kaycee: I feel like I am so lucky to have so many girls to turn to whenever I need them, or whenever I want to go out for mac n cheese. Whenever I walk into a room and see everyone’s smiling faces I feel like the weight of the world is off my shoulders. My sisters have given me so much confidence and happiness, I don’t know how I can ever repay them.

HC: What would you say to someone who’s considering Greek life?

Kaycee: I would tell them to go out and hear what everyone’s about, get the most knowledge they can about every organization out there, and do whatever feels right to them.

 

HC: Is there anything else you are involved in on campus?

Kaycee: Yes, I am a volunteer for Love Your Melon and I am an Ambassador for St. Jude Up ‘til Dawn

 

HC: What is Up ‘til Dawn?

Kaycee: St. Jude Up ‘til Dawn is a night when you sacrifice sleep in honor of the patients undergoing treatment, and the people who will lose sleep over their child’s health and wellbeing. Up ‘til Dawn raises money for children battling pediatric cancer. Up ‘til Dawn is February 25, 2017. You can make a team by going to http://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR/UTD/UTD?pg=entry&fr_id=59097
