Dear Potential New Members,
My name is Mary-Michelle Stokes and I am so honored to serve Alpha Chi this year as Vice President of Recruitment. Within Alpha Chi I have found my best friends, a home away from home and the most genuine girls I have ever met. They intentionally seek to push you to be the best version of yourself. From campus organizations including War Eagle Girls, Majorettes, Student Recruiters, Camp War Eagle Counselors, too many honor societies to count and so much more, the girls in this chapter are more than the letters they wear. They are fiercely loyal, genuine and they can’t wait to meet you. It feels like just yesterday that I was walking into my first recruitment party and into Alpha Chi’s doors. I was incredibly nervous, but so excited to find the sorority that would welcome me home. From a nervous freshman to a confident member, I will forever be grateful for the love this chapter has shown me from the first recruitment party to now. I know the process can be intimidating, but the impact the sorority will have on your life will far outweigh any nerves you may have now. So to you potential new member, always know that I cannot wait for the day I get to meet you and the day you get to meet the girls I love on Auburn’s campus the most. This experience is like no other and I really want you to engage yourself in this opportunity. Follow your heart and throw away any preconceived notions that you were told before meeting each and every chapter. Open your arms to the girls who want to be in your life and visit each chapter with an open mind. I challenge you to look into yourself and find the relationship with the girls that you’ve been looking for. There’s a chapter out there for you, meant to support you, to love you. I am so excited to meet each and every one of you. I know you will find your home and if that is Alpha Chi, I can’t wait to welcome you home to the chapter that was meant for you.
XOXO, Mary-Michelle Stokes
Dear Potential New Members,
It is my absolute biggest blessing and joy to get to serve as Alpha Chi Omega’s New Member Educator this coming year! Ever since my own journey to make all new friends here at Auburn, figure out college, and navigate the craziness of the first semester as Alpha Chi’s I have had a passion and heart for helping Freshman through this exciting time in their life. I cannot wait to experience all the firsts with you – your first college test, first time living away from home, and first swap. Through it all I want to be your first friend in Alpha Chi and the big sister you can cry with, laugh with, and receive the biggest hug from. Alpha Chi Omega was the place for me that brought me the girls who continually build me up, allow me to be the truest version of myself and celebrate with me through thick and thin. These girls are the same ones who are going to love you so well when you run home to Alpha Chi, and I cannot be more thrilled that the Lord chose me to help assimilate you into our sisterhood. Know that you are each so deeply loved and prayed for by Alpha Chi and I can't wait to squeeze you on bid day!
