Why did I join Alpha Xi Delta?

Greek life often gets a bad reputation on college campuses across the United States because the
only time a sorority is ever advertised is when one is caught for drinking, partying, or some other
illegal activity. Thus, the negative stigma associated with joining a sorority it born!

So, as a result of this stigma surrounding joining a sorority, I am constantly faced with the
question “why would you want to join a sorority?” Well, the simple answer is this. I joined
Alpha Xi Delta because, despite what society thinks, my sorority has impacted my life for the
better, and made me a stronger, more determined person because of it.

I joined Alpha Xi Delta to make an impact! I wanted to be held to a higher standard, and find a
place where there are women who will tell me when I am wrong, but help me find ways to better
myself in the process. Also, to be held accountable for my actions and learn how to become a
better leader and member of society.

I joined Alpha Xi Delta because their values are parallel to my own. We should often look for
our place in a community through others, and I found that through this group of women who are
confident, and want to help teach their sisters how to love themselves as well. I joined to learn
communication and time management skills that, hopefully, might help change the world for the
better in the future.

Even though I may have made a few mistakes in my life this far, joining Alpha Xi Delta was not
one of them! Along my journey I have made lifelong friends who I know I can count on no
matter what, which me is priceless. I may not have joined Alpha Xi Delta for the purpose of
meeting boys and partying like many people think, but that does not mean I have not had any fun
in the process of my journey through my sorority.

Overall, I joined Alpha Xi Delta because it is here where I can be true to myself, be honest and
open about my intentions, and find a place where I will constantly be pushed to learn and grow.
This is why I never regret joining my sorority, because it has made me the person I am today!
