Letter From Membership Vice President
My name is Maddi Porter and I am honored to be the Membership Vice President of Rho Chapter. I study Hospitality in Restaurant & Tourism Management along with Leadership & Communication. I am from a small town in the panhandle of Nebraska, called Sidney, Nebraska. Being 5 hours from home and knowing nearly nobody upon arriving at UNL, it is safe to say that Alpha Xi Delta saved me in a way. With that being said, I am so excited to meet all of you this fall so you can see how special Alpha Xi Delta really is. You will experience the uniqueness along with the goofiness this house holds. Most importantly, you will see the endless potential that we hold for you. Although recruitment week can be stressful and nerve wracking at times, I promise it will all be worth it in the end!
To me, Alpha Xi Delta has significantly shaped me into the woman I am proud of today. The growth, love, and encouragement that Alpha Xi has provided over the past year and a half is truly amazing. Without it, I know I would never have gained the confidence to even consider being the Membership Vice President of my sorority. Aside from the confidence I have gained, I have also gained life-long friends who are from all over the country! Our chapter is special in the fact that there are a variety of personalities and passions. I know I always have a friend to accompany me in anything I need! Most importantly, I know I have supportive and loving sisters to go through everything with me - on the good and the bad days.
The uniqueness that I have been talking about within our chapter comes from the loving and positive atmosphere created by the bond between all of us. We are all individuals but come together in a way I can’t even begin to describe (you will have to see for yourself!) To say I am looking forward to standing on the front steps of Alpha Xi ready to show you what we are all about is an understatement.
Lastly, I want you to know that with my whole heart, I hope every one of you finds your place. College is just four years of your life. Take this time to start being picky about the women you choose to surround yourself with. Choose to find comfort, fabulous friendships, encouragement, and genuine happiness. We all feel these things in Alpha Xi Delta, and more. Above everything, BE YOURSELF! Find the place where you can walk in and instantly feel comfortable and like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. The right house will love you for YOU - don’t settle for anything less.
Here is one of my favorite quotes and one I think everyone should keep in mind while going through recruitment: “You are absolutely stunning and that’s the least interesting thing about you.” <3
