This week Kendall Meyers is our Alpha Chi of the Week. From serving as intramural chair to being a part of our recruitment skit, Kendall has been very involved with Alpha Chi during her time at Auburn.
What do you love most about Alpha Chi?
The thing I love most about Alpha Chi is that I found my best friends the second week of Freshman year, and we have been friends ever since. My peeps in PC '11 are as genuine and kind as it gets, and I am so lucky to call them my friends. We have been through it all together, and I would not be half the person I am today without them.
If you could eat dinner with any celebrity who would you choose?
Mumford and Sons. I am a major groupie and would probably be too stunned to even speak.
Who has impacted you the most in Alpha Chi?
I have lived with the same five Alpha Chis for the past two years, and they have abundantly blessed my life. They are the coolest people I know, and I strive to be like each one of them every day. They have become my family, and for that I am forever grateful.
Major: Biomedical Sciences
What is your favorite Alpha Chi memory?
It's hard to choose one, but of my favorite Alpha Chi memories is going white water rafting in Columbus! I've always wanted to go and was glad to share my first experience with my AXO friends. I'll never forget our tour guide falling out of the raft and moving down the lazy river!
If you could live anywhere for a year, where would it be?
A year would be the perfect amount of time to live in Florida near Orlando. I don't think its where I would pick to live my whole life, but I would love a little more time to volunteer at Give Kids the World Village and a way to go to Disney World as often as possible.
What is your ultimate dream job?
My ultimate dream job is actually the one I'm pursuing, to be a physician's assistant and to have the opportunity to explore different areas of medicine through that career. I most hope to spend time working in pediatrics.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
My superpower of choice has always been flight. It would be awesome to be able to travel wherever I wanted, and it seems like it would be plain fun. I love superhero movies and wished I could fly as a kid after watching Superman for the first time.
What made you choose to come to Auburn?
Auburn has been important to my family for generations, and I've been coming all of my life for football games. I was sure I wanted to come here for school not only because it feels like home, but also because I was confident it would lead me to a successful career and give me opportunities to branch out on campus.
What sold you on Alpha Chi?
Alpha Chi's musical history caught my attention at first. Later, the real hook was not only how genuine each Alpha Chi I met was when they told me about themselves and the sorority, but also how genuinely interested they were in what I had to say, too. I felt more comfortable and more "myself" at Alpha Chi than I did anywhere else during recruitment.

What has it been like being a part of Danceline at Auburn?
Being on Auburn's Danceline has been a dream come true. I have wanted to be on a collegiate dance team my entire life. I began dancing at my aunt's studio Linda Dobbins Dance when I was in fourth grade, and I danced competitively there for 9 years.
What has it been like being working as choreographer for Greek Sing as a freshman?
At first I was really intimidated, but the older girls were so sweet and have been so much help in keeping everyone focused. I can always count on them to be the bad cop when needed. I have loved every second of greek sing and I have made 33 amazing friends that I probably would not have gotten to know without greek sing!
How has it been balancing being on Danceline and being in Alpha Chi?
It was difficult at first because I had to miss so many things that it was hard to get to know people, but the whole chapter has been so supportive of me being on Danceline! (and of course I always feel so loved on gamedays when I see all my sisters wearing my face on their buttons!)
What is your favorite part of Alpha Chi?
Definitely all of the friends I've made! It's so awesome having so many friends that are so different and are from so many different places!
What has been your favorite freshman year memory?
I can't choose a certain one! probably just every social! always love tearin up the dance floor with my girls
If you could give any advice to upcoming freshmen, what would it be?
1. Listen to your mom, everything she says always ends up being right
2. Be yourself no matter what

What is your favorite memory in Alpha Chi?
My favorite Alpha Chi memory would have to be getting my little.
How has your fame through modeling for the American Girl Magazine affected your college career?
Well I've been able to lead a normal college life because, surprisingly, no one remembers the 2004 Summer edition. My friends, however, won't let me live it down.
