Alpha Xi Delta

Rho at University of Nebraska

Letter From Chapter President

Hey everyone!

My name is Maggie Osborne and I am the Chapter President of Rho Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta! I am a senior here at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying biology and minoring in psychology.

When I was entering my freshman year in the fall of 2020, I knew I was going to go through primary recruitment but I wasn’t quite sure if a sorority was actually for me. I loved the idea of meeting “friends for life” or finding my “home away from home,” but it always secretly sounded cheesy to me. But, sitting here writing this to you entering my senior year, I can genuinely say it's exactly what you will get plus so much more!

I grew up with strong female leaders in my family. I knew what it was like to have friendships in my life that encouraged me to grow. However, I was about to go to school seven hours away from all the people in my life and I was scared! I was scared to leave my mom and my family, to start out on my own and have to make new friends. Little did I know that Alpha Xi Delta would be the best blessing I could ask for in college. From my first conversation I immediately was laughing and felt like I knew these women my whole life. On day one of recruitment we were chatting about what side of tik tok we were on, what books I read that summer, and why I love dogs so much. By the end of the week, I was so comfortable at Alpha Xi that I felt like I could open my heart to the women I was talking to, and I’ve only grown in friendship and sisterhood since!

Alpha Xi Delta has given me more than I ever expected. I find myself surrounded by women that I constantly look up to, can confide in about any situation, and ask advice whenever needed. Alpha Xi has shaped me into a confident and compassionate leader and offered me so many opportunities to voice my opinions and get involved in the chapter, on campus, and in developing my future. 

As you start your journey here at UNL and go through the recruitment process, I encourage you to look for a chapter that helps you to grow and supports you no matter what. There are many wonderful things that Greek life has to offer here, but above all else, there is belonging and love waiting for you here at UNL. I was lucky enough to find that here Alpha Xi, and I am so excited to help you with your recruitment journey. I can’t wait to meet you all soon!

See you at the Castle!
