Farewell, but not Forever
Hi Everyone! Happy (maybe?) spring!
I hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day! Sadly, this will be your last time hearing from me in a newsletter, as my term came to a close on March 17th. Because of this, I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on the year as the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.
As I remind the active brothers all the time, Sigma Chi is truly the best thing that has ever happened me. Every single member of this fraternity that I have had the opportunity to meet has made such an impact on my life in ways that I could never forget.
I sometimes find it difficult to put into words the impact that this fraternity has had on me. Mostly because it’s not a bullet-pointed list, but the impact is found in every laugh, smile, tear, or conversation I have had with active members in the past year. You have all been the greatest support system in my life and opened me up to so many amazing opportunities. Every member of this incredible fraternity welcomed me with open arms in a time when I felt so alone. You continue to show me day in and day out what it means to feel loved and to be a part of something bigger than myself. You all have held me on my bad days and celebrated with me on my good days.
I am reminded every day of Sigma Chi’s values through the actions of these young men I consider not just my best friends, but my second family. The values are not just words in a book that are meant to look good but are meant to be truly lived by. I’m constantly reminded of this every day, which I could not be prouder of. What this fraternity has given and done for me is absolutely indescribable and could only be partly understood by the people who were involved. I am eternally grateful for every single member of this fraternity, and I will forever try to repay that gratitude. I am so honored for having the opportunity to be a part of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, and I love and care for you all so deeply. Thank you so much for giving me a second family and reminding me I’ll never again feel alone! Hope to still see and hear from you around the house!
In Hoc and Chirp Chirp,
