Maddy Kratochvil

Chapter President

“During recruitment, all of the women I talked to were genuinely excited to get to know me for who I am. I instantly knew that the women I met were going to be the type of people I wanted to surround myself with. Every time I left the Alpha Xi room during recruitment I felt like I was at home and that I finally found my people. Personally, my involvement with Alpha Xi Delta provides me with time management skills which are critical to balancing family and work responsibilities after graduation. I figure if I can lead this chapter, attend chapter meetings, work part-time and keep my GPA up, I will be able to manage my post-college obligations. Being part of Alpha Xi Delta has pushed me to explore my boundaries and challenged me to be a leader. My first year as an Alpha Xi Delta, I was tasked with leading our chapters efforts in a variety of aspects as our Membership Vice President, Recruitment Events Director, Campus Relations Director, and Electronic Communications Director. This past semester I was eager to have a greater role in my chapter. I am honored to have been elected as our chapter President, and look forward to what this next year has in store!

Panhellenic Delegate

“I chose Alpha Xi Delta because all of the girls made me feel like I was still a part of something special when I came to La Crosse, and all the girls are great and they are people who you will always have a great time with no matter where you are.”

Anna Brinkmann

Communications Vice President

I joined Alpha Xi Delta to meet new people and experience a closer relationship others at the UW La Crosse. I wanted to get involved and join a fun family who would help me feel more at home. Since joining, I have learned that I can be a strong and independent person. Alpha Xi Delta has given me positions that I am not used to, and because of this I've had opportunities to try new things and become better in fields I might not be used to. Alpha Xi Delta has given me my life long friends and sisters who are always there for me!

Emily Brown

Membership Vice President

I chose AXID because I wanted to be able to branch out in college and meet new people by finding a home away from home. That was AXID. I was able to meet new people and find my passion in sisterhood and our philanthropy.

Signe Begalske

Membership Development Vice President

I chose AXID because all the girls I talked to were so incredibly welcoming and genuine and I could tell they were the kind of people I wanted to get to know on a deeper level. I knew they would push me to do great things. The women of AXID inspired me and I knew I wanted to strive to be just like them by joining their amazing sisterhood.

Kendra Crotteau

Chapter Life Vice President

I chose AXID because I connected with their philanthropy the most. I was also struggling to find and make friends the first few months of college and AXID not only helped with that but gave me a sense of belonging. My best friends are in the sorority, they are my second family.

Lauren Clements

Finance & Operations Vice President

I joined AXID and Greek Life because I was interested in making friends at UWL cause I was new and didn’t really know anyone at the time and I thought it would be a great way to make friends and it was. I also did a lot of leadership roles in high school and volunteering and I knew I wanted to continue to do that. AXID had a lot of those values and more so it was a great place for me and I am so glad that I joined!

Lizzi Waldner

Philanthropy Vice President

I chose axid because I immediately had a connection with the girls in the recruitment room. I knew I could be myself and I didn’t have to be someone I thought they wanted me to be. I could talk about the deep stuff with them but also the fun stuff and all the things we want in life. I knew that I couldn’t imagine my life without them in it.
