a letter from our new member educator
My name is Rosie Nelson, and I’m beyond excited to serve as the New Member Educator for Pi Alpha Chi this year! I will be a Junior this upcoming fall studying microbiology on the Pre-health track! During my free time, you can usually find me spending time with my friends and family, trying any new thing I can get my hands on (whether it’s a restaurant, city, or tv show), or most importantly playing with dog, Gabbana. My time as a member of Pi Alpha Chi has been so much more meaningful and fun then I ever could have imagined my freshman year and I cannot wait to share and build that experience with new members! Being a part of this sisterhood has brought me so much joy and so many unforgettable moments, and I’m confident that new members will feel the same.
If you have any questions about the New Member Education program or want to learn more about the sorority, please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 340 – 9824. I cannot wait to see where this sisterhood will bring you!
- Rosie Nelson
New Member Education Program
When you join Pi Alpha Chi and go through the Genesis Ceremony, you transition from a Potential New Member to an Official New Member of Pi Alpha Chi. Your journey begins with a dynamic new member education program designed to make your transition to college smooth, to teach you the ins and outs of membership, and to foster bonding with new sisters. Each week, your New Member Educator will lead you and your pledge class through team building exercises and discussions, with the help of other active members, in order to prepare you for your Initiation. Along the way, New Members are also encouraged to attend faith, sisterhood, social, and philanthropic events. After the Genesis Ceremony, all New Members are required to attend the new member education program.
Highlights Of The Program
- Study hours (with snacks!) to promote academic success.
- Sister dates to get to know upperclasswomen.
- Big/Little week, which matches each New Member to a "big" sister and an extended family of upperclasswomen.
- Initiation Vigil held the night before Initiation to shower new sisters with intercessory prayers.
