Lauren Sackett: “Considering myself as someone shy and not always one to put myself out there, Greek Life seemed foreign and a little scary to me. But I went on a whim to recruitment last spring with a group of friends just to see what it was all about . The first room I ever went into was Theta Phi Alpha. And it was the only one I never wanted to leave. The sisters had similarities, but I noticed none were exactly the same. The diversity of those women attracted me to want to spend time to get to know them more. After receiving a bid, Theta Phi became a part of me that I can’t ever imagine missing. Being accepted and worthy of love from these wonderful girls is a feeling that is indescribable. This organization has brought me the big sister I’ve never had (S/O to Kelin, I love you), motivation to strive academically and in my career goals, and the opportunity to break out of my shell and experience overwhelming support from 50+ women.”

Lucy Holmes-Higgin: “I joined TPA because I knew it was for me. The minute I walked intot he recruitment room, I felt at home. TPA’s values really fit perfectly with mine, and there mission is something that I strive to live by. Finding my home in Theta Phi Alpha, and going Greek was the best decision that I’ve made in college thus far! I have met so many different people in different orgs, and gotten so invovled on campus. It taught me to come out of my shell and become the leader that I am today!”
