"When I walked into the room during that first day of recruitment, something just clicked. I’m still not exactly sure what I was looking for when I walked into Theta, but I think it was exactly what I needed.
My first two months, well, honestly first semester at SLU were rough. I was homesick almost all the time, my classes were good, but over all I was just having a hard time adjusting. Apart from the week long summer camps I went to over the summers, this was the longest time I’d ever spent away from my family. The sisterhood that I left behind at my all-girls Catholic high school, Saint Teresa’s Academy, wasn’t something I had anticipated missing that much, but compared to the strong sense of sisterhood I had felt there, SLU just felt kind of lonely.
Theta gave me the home and the sisterhood I was looking for. I know my sisters will always have my back. Whether it’s making sure I don’t get tackled in SLUper Bowl, bringing me tea when I’m sick, being a shoulder to cry on, or making sure I get out of bed for my 8:00 am class, my sisters always go out of their way to make me smile, and that’s all I could ever truly need in a sisterhood. I honestly couldn’t be more blessed to be sisters with some of the best."
