Letter from the Recruitment Chair
My name is Katie Nicolaides and I'm Sigma Sigma Sigma's recruitment chair. I am so happy that you are considering becoming a part of Greek life here at St. Joe's! Greek life may not make up a large part of our campus life, however, it gives you an opportunity that many other activities or programs do not. The reason that this opportunity is so different is because the individuals that become a part of this community are no longer just your peers, they are now your sisters and/or brothers.
This spring will be the two-year anniversary of when I went from having two sisters to one hundred plus sisters. I can personally say that the past two years have been two of the best, and this is all thanks to Sigma! Sigma has introduced me to some of the most dedicated, hard-working, and loving girls I have ever met. My sisters have taught me the meaning of friendship and sisterhood through all of their love and support. It is thanks to them that I am truly getting and making the most out of my college experience.
Along the way, I have learned the importance of leadership and involvement through Sigma. With many of our sisters being heavily involved in academic programs, volunteer service programs, and other on-campus organizations, you are presented with several ways to branch out and become more involved. Through these experiences and opportunities, you are able to give back to a community that gives us so much. Sometimes it is difficult to become involved on campus, but Sigma presents various opportunities to make it possible. These opportunities are related to our philanthropy, which is the Robbie Page Memorial Foundation. Each year we host a 5K at the Philadelphia Zoo, a Bunny Bash, and Mr. SJU competition to raise money for this cause.
I know that the recruitment process can be intimidation, but just remember that the only opinion that matter is your own. I wish you the best of luck and hope you are able to find your home away from home, like I was able to with Sigma.
