Brigitte Curcio is the Campus Correspondent for the new chapter at UTM, and she is so excited that she was able to start it! She is a senior studying Public Relations and Women’s Studies. She is from Connecticut and moved south for school to be on the Division 1 Skyhawk Rifle Team. She serves as Panhellenic President, President of Student-Athlete Advisory Council, Vice President of Order of Omega at UTM, Ritual Chair of Zeta Tau Alpha Delta Mu Chapter, 2018 Conference Coordinator for the Coalition for Collegiate Women’s Leadership Annual Conference and the Secretary-Treasurer for the Rifle Club. Brigitte is so proud that she was able to be a part of bringing Her Campus to UTM and that all of the wonderful women on the team are already so passionate.
I met Brigitte our second semester of freshman year; we both decided to go through spring recruitment, and we both decided to show up at ZTA. Brigitte likes to say that she decided to go Greek “because I was bored.” Whatever her reasoning was at the time, Brigitte and I wound up in the same pledge class, and we were kind of friends; we were at least nice to each other. But I did not really start to know Brigitte until our sophomore year. That’s when she became one of my people. You always hear people say “oh, you’ll find your person or your people in college.” Well, that is definitely true. Brigitte became one of my people very quickly. We were both at a school far from home, and her qualities reminded me of my own sisters that were hours away. Her sarcasm, wit and goofiness were just what I needed in my life. Not only is she my ZTA sister, but she has become almost like a real sister. We sure do argue like it sometimes. But really, I feel sorry for you if you don’t have that person in your life, or really just Brigitte.
