It's that time of year again! Pi Chi Applications are out, and Auburn's recruitment will be here before we know it. As girls begin the process of applying, we're catching up with some former Pi Chis and putting them in the spotlight for a change!
"I’m looking forward to getting to work with all of the Pi Chis and be sure I am there for them with everything they need. One of my main goals is to not only be their leader, but also be their friend. I want to be approachable and for the girls to know that I am there to help them 24/7. I’m so excited to work with all the new Pi Chis and make this year such a positive and fun experience!
My advice to a girl who is thinking about applying would be for them to absolutely go for it, and definitely try out. I think that every girl should go into the application and interview with confidence. One of the most important things about being a Pi Chi is to be yourself, and have a positive attitude at all times."
"Being a Pi Chi was the most rewarding experience I’ve had at Auburn and taught me valuable lessons I will carry with me even after I graduate. While being assistant Head Pi Chi, I want to improve the communication between sororities and PanHellenic during recruitment week, and complete any tasks needed for the Head Pi Chi. I also want to help the incoming Pi Chi’s have a successful and fulfilling week with their group.
To anyone who is interested in applying, I would explain to them that it's one of the best experiences you can have at Auburn and will help you grow as an individual. You meet a group of amazing Pi Chi’s that will become your best friends. You will adore your group and they will teach you to be responsible and selfless. I would recommend anyone who wants to be involved to try out for Pi Chi because it's an incredible experience!"
"I decided to become a Pi Chi because of my own Pi Chi. The second day of philanthropy I woke up sick and tried to withdraw from recruitment; my Pi Chi made sure I got to all my parties and helped me get better. She was there for me when I needed her, even though it wasn't a sorority problem. It really shined a light on all that the Pi Chis are responsible for, and made me want to help girls like she had helped me. The most rewarding part of the experience is when I run into my girls or other Pi Chis around Auburn the weeks after the recruitment. It’s really cool to see how each of the girls have found their place at Auburn. Plus after training all spring semester and living in a hotel for 10 days, the fellow Pi Chis become some of your best friends."
"My Pi Chi was one of the major influences I had in making the decision to become one. She was such a blessing to me that week and made my recruitment experience amazing. I wanted the chance to be that for my own group of girls. My hope going in to it was to have to opportunity to show my group how much fun recruitment could be and make it a positive first experience at Auburn. I wanted to communicate to potential members that you end up exactly where you are supposed to be, and hoped to help them realize that you can find what you are looking for in any sorority. I wanted to be exactly what my group needed- a comic relief when they needed a laugh, a shoulder to cry on, or a pair of ears to listen to the ups and downs of the week.
If you are even considering it, you should absolutely apply! Being a Pi Chi has been one of the best things I have done in my time here at Auburn. SO many friendships have been formed, both with other Pi Chis and with the girls in your group. This experience will completely shift your perspective on recruitment and give you such an appreciation for Panhellenic as whole. You can be the difference in making recruitment week a blast and an incredible first memory of Auburn!"
