The Phi Sig World

The past month has been quite an exciting one for the sisters of Phi Sig!

 As we all know, recruitment week and the beginning of new classes can prove to be an extremely stressful period. Our spring recruitment brought us 12 beautiful and unique girls that we are more than excited to welcome as our newest sisters! Our 12 new additions will bring us to over 80 sisters, which we are overwhelmingly thrilled about!

At the end of recruitment week, some of our sisters on E-Board traveled to Washington, D.C. for our national conference. The girls were able to meet hundreds of other Phi Sig sisters from chapters all over the country! Conference is certainly one of the greatest benefits of being a national chapter. Those who went said they had incredible experiences learning about different chapters and strategies used by those chapters. The girls also had the privilege of meeting Alicia Scott, Phi Sigma Sigma’s Grand Archon, and other highly influential members of Phi Sig’s history. This year, Phi Sigma Sigma is celebrating our centennial anniversary, an outstanding an exciting accomplishment for our organization. Our centennial conference will be held this July in New York City!

Love was certainly in the air for the Phi Sig sisters this month with our Valentines Day Fundraiser. We decorated heart shaped cards and sold them with roses and candy for $2 each. Students all over campus bought them for their sweethearts making it a huge success! We raised just under $100 and are eager to put the money towards future sisterhood events.

The upcoming months will without a doubt be just as busy for us. Our Risk Management Chair, Rebecca Menachem, is planning for our chapter to participate in the “Red Watch Band” program, a certification designed to teach students the procedures that should be taken when a friend may have alcohol poisoning. In addition, we’ve also begun to plan our Family Weekend, tentatively to take place in April. We’re can’t wait to share our success with our families and teach them a little bit more about what goes on in the Phi Sig world!!
