"I have so many favorite memories from Alpha Xi Delta!! Two of them are from getting my two littles, Megan and Anna. They are the absolute best things to have happened to me and its the best thing to be able to see my little family to grow. Another favorite memory was attending the National Conference in Seattle this past summer. I was able to connect with sisters from across the US and I was even able to meet the National president!"

Selena Aronson

Historian

"Alpha Xi Delta gave me a college experience. After transferring to UW-La Crosse my sophomore year I knew that I didn't want to be another average college student who goes to class, does homework and gets good grades. I knew that I needed to put myself out there and push myself out of my comfort zone in order to achieve what I wanted in myself. Joining Alpha Xi Delta has impacted my life in such a huge and positive way that I can't even put it into words. Thanks to AXiD I have better networking skills, an amazing support system, friendships that will last a lifetime, and a home away from home."

"While all of these values play a big role in my life and as a role in Alpha Xi Delta, I would say that knowledge is very important to me in its own way. I think that gaining knowledge, especially from others around me, can lead to new and more profound insights and ideas on the world around me. I've always had a strong desire to learn in school and focus on topics that I like, such as science, math, and music, but once I started to take the information about my life outside of school, I felt that I was learning even more. Knowledge is key. It can provide us with solutions to our problems, allows us to move past our mistakes, and helps us do more of what we love! I think knowledge especially applies within the chapter because with it, when we learn about one another, we then know how to help eachother, just as when we learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorder, we then can find ways to spread the love of Autism Speaks!"
