Name: Katie Ritchie
Major: Majoring in English with a minor in Business
Organization: Phi Sigma Sigma
Life Motto: As cliché as it sounds, “everything happens for a reason”
Favorite Thing About Greek Life: Greek life has provided me with life long friends whom have helped to shape me into who I am. I have such a different bond with the sisters in my sorority that I don’t think could have been formed if I didn’t join Greek Life. No matter what day or time, there is always someone that I can call to hit the library, grab a bite to eat, or just hang out! It also forced me to get involved on campus in ways that I probably wouldn’t have on my own.
Favorite Thing about Oneonta: First of all, I just love the atmosphere of being upstate. I’m from Long Island and there is nothing like being in Oneonta during the fall to watch the mountains turn from green to gold. I also love that I can always find a familiar face wherever I go!
Something you can’t live without: My planner, coffee and my laptop
