Letter From Membership Vice President
Dear Potential New Sister,
Welcome! I am so glad to see you have reached our website. My name is Megan Elliott, and I am the Membership Vice President of the Delta Alpha chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. I am so excited that you are interested in Sorority Life here on campus!
Our sisterhood welcomes women who not only empower themselves but others as well. Alpha Xi Delta is proudly built on four core pillars: knowledge, leadership, sisterhood, and service. With each philanthropy event, sisterhood activity, or weekly chapter meeting, we try to incorporate each of these pillars to help us all grow into the best, most well-rounded women that we can be. We hope that you can take this opportunity to think about what these four pillars mean to you and how you could be the perfect addition to our sisterhood.
Being a member of a sorority is such an amazing experience to have during your time at UWL. I know that Recruitment Week and the days leading up to it are very busy, nerve-racking, and exciting. But don’t worry, we all survived, and you will too!
What to expect:
The first night (Monday, September 19th) is Informational Night. This is when women from our Panhellenic Council will guide you through the upcoming week of Recruitment and answer any questions/comments/concerns that you might have going into the process.
The second night (Tuesday, September 20th) is called the Sisterhood Round. This is the night when our sisters are finally able to meet and get to know you! Each interested potential new sister will visit with each sorority.
The third night (Wednesday, September 21st) is called the Philanthropy Round. Here, we get to know you even better and you get info on what we value and raise awareness for.
The fourth night (Thursday, September 22nd) is called the Preference Round. These deeper conversations lead to true connections between our sisters and you, truly help to decide where you fit best.
Bid Day and beyond. The last night of Recruitment is called Bid Day and is when you get to see all of the weeks’ time and work pay off. Bid Day is a day of celebration for us all!
- Bring some water for in-between rounds of each sorority. There will be a LOT of talking each night and you want to make sure you are feeling your best!
- Wear what you are going to be comfortable and confident in. You will be standing, sitting, and walking around so keep that in mind when doing your fit check.
- Be yourself. We want to know who you really are and create a bond with the true (and amazing) you.
We have a whole chapter full of sisters who are all looking forward to meeting you during Recruitment week!
