Fraternally, Jacqueline Young Assistant PR Alpha Gamma Delta Slide3:  New Members’ Blog 3 Message from our President . Welcome Back! I hope that everyone had a wonderful summer and is happy to be back with all your sisters and friends.  I would like to send out a huge congratulations to all chapters on a fabulous recruitment.  This year we beat all of our recruitment goals and had a large quota of 18!  Recruitment went very well overall and I am so pleased that all chapters have fared so well.  I am also incredibly excited to see what the newest members of Panhellenic have in store for us and I am so excited to get to know all of you.  I encourage all members to come and talk to me about Panhellenic as I would love to chat with you.  The Panhellenic Council would also love to have each of you attend one of our meetings this year.  October is month of the scholar so make sure to look out for different events this month and make sure to set aside some study times with friends. Lastly I would like to send out a huge congratulations and welcome to the Junior Panhellenic Council 2006!  We are so happy to have 14 new faces affiliated with the Panhellenic Council! Have a great first term! Sincerely, Jessie UBC Panhellenic President "So far, it's pretty cool being in a sorority, and it's a lot of fun because you get to meet so many people at one time. What I like about it is, you get to bond with a lot of girls and they are really sweet. Plus, you get to do all these events together. I look forward to getting to know the girls more, and it's not enough just going to meeting, but you got to plan things outside of them to meet individual girls and chat with them." – Louisa Lai ΑΦ “The whole sorority thing was completely new to me.  I'd seen the movies and heard the horror stories but that was where my knowledge of sorority girls ended.  The three days of recruitment were a blur of smiling faces, glasses of punch and matching t-shirts.  I felt pretty intimidated walking through columns upon columns of cheerful new faces- I was entering an entirely new frontier and felt exhilarated but slightly on edge.  And then I found it.  A place where I felt comfortable.  A place where, upon walking in, I felt my tense shoulders finally relax as I carried on a fun, joke-filled conversation with girls I could see myself becoming quite close to.  I am now a member of an organization that throws male beauty pageants, holds secret rituals and rules competitive dodge ball.  I have discovered a new community-the Greeks- and that has made all the difference in my time at UBC.” – ΓΦΒ New member “This year I joined the Greek system with Kappa Kappa Gamma. Throughout recruitment, though it was overwhelming, I met so many great girls that I really connected with. Being new to UBC as a second year, I don't have the easy networking environment that 1st year res. students enjoy, and joining a sorority has given me the opportunity to put myself out there in the social side of things. Even the whole recruitment experience was incredible, there isn't a day on campus or a night out with my friends that I don't bump into some girls I met from the other sororities during recruitment. Although it was tough to choose which sorority to join because there were so many women that I met, I am happy to have pledged with Kappa. Right away the girls took me in and really made it easy to get to know them. Kappa has brought so many positive things into my life already and I am looking forward to many more great experiences.” – Erica Shalinsky KKΓ Being a Delta Gamma new member is an experience I can liken to nothing else. Joining a sorority, girls often have no idea what they're getting themselves into, let alone joining a group of 50+ girls who you barely know but joining Delta Gamma has been such an amazingly fun experience and it hasn't even really begun yet. Finding your way around UBC is hard enough as a first year but having other girls to help me along the way has made the whole transition from high school so much easier, the girls are always around and it's nice see so many friendly faces. My new member class and I can already see how much fun we have in store for us. Although we're still learning our way through the whole process it's comforting to have a home on campus with the DGs. - ΔΓ New member
