Letter From Recruitment Chair

Hello everyone! 

    My name is Mary Elizabeth Whitley, and I am so honored to be serving the Phi Mu Kappa Sigma chapter as Membership Director this term! I am so excited to see what these next two semesters have in store for me and my sisters at JSU. For me, Phi Mu has always been more than just a sorority. It has been my home. Whenever I am in need of support, love, and encouragement, I know I can turn to any of my sisters to uplift me and help me grow. 
    I am an out of state college student which can be hard sometimes. I knew very early on that I wanted JSU to be my home, but the only thing that worried me was not being able to find MY people. There was never a doubt in my mind that I wanted to be in a sorority. My mom still sees her sorority sisters after many years and they share a bond more special than most. I wanted what my mom had, and I knew going through recruitment and finding my home would give me that. I can genuinely say that I enjoyed the recruitment process so much. It taught me so many things about myself that I would have never known, had I not taken the chance and rushed. 
    I can confidently say that since being in Phi Mu, I truly have found MY people. I found friends who support me, encourage me, and uplift me in anything and everything I do. I always have a sister who is willing to spend time with me and listen to me. Phi Mu has taught me how to be a supportive friend, a leader, and a better version of myself. I would not be the woman I am today without my Phi Mu sisters. 
    I want to encourage anyone who is interested in Greek Life, to go for it! You will never regret trying new things and taking chances. Going through recruitment can be a scary thing, but it has provided so many amazing opportunities to fraternity and sorority men and women, including myself. There are many different ideas that surround Greek Life, especially sorority life, but I can confidently say that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the Greek system and without Phi Mu. I hope that this letter inspires you to want to learn more about recruitment and try it out for yourself!
