I Found Myself In Sisterhood

Friday, September 27, 2013

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. It's my last recruitment for Chi Omega at DePaul, and every night is bittersweet - telling the PNMs memories from my four years in the chapter, explaining how this organization has allowed me to grow as a person, and the unbreakable bonds I have created with these women. 

"Sister are the angels who lift us from our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly." This quote perfectly describes the sisterhood I've found in Chi Omega. Sometimes, I doubt myself and don't give myself enough credit. My sisters, however, remind me every day of how special, hard-working, irreplaceable I am. These reminders have given me the confidence to exceed not only in social situations, but in my academic and career journey as well. 

In all complete honesty, I don't know where I'd be without my Chi Omega sisters. Before joining a sorority, I was unsure of who I was - I was extremely shy and dependent on others. I was scared of the future and had little confidence in myself. Three years later, I am a completely different person. Chi Omega didn't change me, it made me the best version of myself that I couldn't see before. 

I cannot thank these women and this organization enough for all they have given me. Sisterhood in Chi Omega really is for a lifetime, and I know my sisters will be with me every step of the way.


  1. To be honest, the best part of sisterhood is the bond you create outside of the chapter as you are alumnae. I have grown closer with my sorority sisters and have been there for weddings, births, and everything in between. We console each other after long term relationships end and are there for all of life's big and little moments.

    It's not four years, but for life.

  2. I have grown so much through my involvement in Chi Omega. I honestly don't know how I would've made it through transferring from Virginia Tech to UVA had it not been for them. I can't imagine how I'll feel when I graduate next year.


  3. Loved this Carly, I'm an ADPI alum and I could not imagine my college experience without my sisterhood looking back as an alum! :)


  4. The bonds we share as women is so important. I like the positive aspects of a sorority
