A LETTER FROM VICE PRESIDENT OF RECRUITMENT, SIENNA LOTINA
Dear Potential New Members,
As the Vice President of Recruitment for Pi Beta Phi, I am so excited to welcome you all to recruitment at the University of Oregon. We are all beyond thrilled to meet each and every one of you.
Coming into my freshman year, I remember feeling anxious about the new experience that awaited me. Between college classes and making friends, I hardly thought I would have time to be in a sorority. Not to mention, the experience of recruitment seemed daunting enough. Still, I decided to try it anyway and what I experienced has since changed my life. I found not only sisters, but a home at Pi Beta Phi, and we wish the same for all of you, no matter where that is.
Our hope is that during recruitment, you feel comfortable and welcome in our home. We also encourage you to embrace the friendships you make during recruitment and enjoy the process that is ultimately just getting to know someone. We can’t wait to share all the funny memories and stories us Pi Beta Phis have shared together throughout the years. We hope after leaving our house, you will feel less nervous about what awaits you and more stoked about starting the best years of your life!
As Pi Beta Phi’s, we pride ourselves in being involved on campus. We have sisters involved in various clubs, sports, study abroad programs at the UO. We also are extremely proud of our academic accomplishments. In fact, we continue to maintain some of the highest grades on campus; last term we were thrilled to have an average house GPA of 3.51. We also love to collaborate with other chapters in the Fraternity Sorority Life (FSL) community, especially to participate in fun philanthropy events for various philanthropic causes.
We know that there are many questions left unanswered about what sorority recruitment will look like in this new age of social distancing. In a time of such uncertainty, we don’t have those answers either. Whatever recruitment looks like this year, Pi Beta Phi promises to dedicate the same amount of time and attention to you to make this process special.
Being in a sorority at the UO is such an amazing experience and we can’t wait to meet you all!
