Name: Lucy Holmes-Higgin
Major: Public Relations
Sorority: Theta Phi Alpha
When and Why did you join greek life?
I transferred into St. John’s knowing I wanted to do Greek Life. I joined Fall of 2015! I wanted to do it because I wanted to find a family away from home and have that close sisterhood that you always hear about.
How was greek life impacted your college experience?
Greek Life has extremely impacted my college experience. I met a lot of my close friends through it and have made my best friends through my sorority. I received my last job and internship through one of my sisters, it has opened so many doors for me! Since joining, I have become so much more independent and outgoing and I see myself as a Leader now.
Aside from greek life, how else are you involved on campus?
I am really involved on campus! I am the Public Relations Chair for Student Government Inc., running their social media and making flyers for a lot of organizations on campus. I am the Community Service Chair for the Panhellenic Council, and I hold an appointed position in my sorority. I am also one of the Campus Correspondents for Her Campus! I started my own sorority based apparel company, SratLife, this summer with one of my sisters and am working very hard to get it off the ground! I love St. John’s, and if I had a word of wisdom to anyone, it would be to get as involved as possible!!
