president of the Alabama Panhellenic Association


ow is a more exciting time than ever to be Greek at UA. Not only are we rooted in 106 years of tradition, but from that tradition we are growing one of the largest Greek systems in the country at an exponential rate. The Board of Trustees just approved the construction of four new sorority houses, and we will soon hear from Delta Gamma if they will be recolonizing here next fall. We set a national record of 1,641 for number of women participating in formal recruitment from 35 states. That record is not only a significant logical planning feat, but it is a testimony to the appeal and strength that our sororities have across the nation.


director of recruitment for the Alabama Panhellenic Association


’m so excited to be apart of a recordbreaking recruitment at the University of Alabama. The Alabama Panhellenic Association worked extremely hard on the preparation and execution of the week of recruitment. I’m very proud of everyone on the Panhellenic Executive Council as well as our staff from Greek Affairs. This is a great time to be Greek at UA, because our community is stronger than ever. I’m so proud to have helped plan recruitment for more than 1600 women to be a part of the new member class of 2010.

From Ellen Dendy, president

From Stacey Stewart, president • Since I was previously

• We work a lot with our national philanthropy, domestic violence, but we also are dedicated to raising funds for other charities and foundations around campus. Our philanthropy is sometimes hard to work with because it is confidential so we enjoy being able to do hands on activities locally. • As a whole, we have consistently displayed academic excellence and our members are involved in various groups on campus including Blackburn Institute, SGA, Capstone Men and Women, College Ambassadors, XXXI and University Fellows. One of our members, Shellie Street, also currently holds the Miss University of Alabama title. • The most rewarding part of being a sorority chapter president is knowing that you have the ability to influence such a large group of girls. I enjoy waking up everyday knowing that I am not just living for myself, but also to encourage, challenge, embrace and love the many people around me.

our philanthropy chair, I am most proud of all of the visits we make to the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham each semester. Whether we visit to make dinner, host an Easter Egg hunt, bake cookies, or take Halloween baskets, we always see the gratitude that the families staying in the Ronald McDonald House have for our trips. • Last year, our chapter had the most members on Freshman Forum, and we also had the most Sigma Rho Chis for 2010 Recruitment. Four of our members also hold the offices of president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary of the Council of Presidents, the governing body of the College of Human Environmental Sciences. • The most rewarding part of being president is being a shoulder to lean on. People come to you about many different problems to ask for advice.

From Chelsea Levi, president • Our chapter’s philanthro-

py is the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, which raises money for diabetes research. This past year, the members of Alpha Gam raised more than $8,500 for the Foundation, making our chapter the second-highest donor to the Foundation nationally. While I am very pleased with the work we do for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, I am most proud of the work that our members do to serve others locally. In March, our chapter donated more than 100 “sugar-free Easter baskets” to diabetic patients in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Mobile hospitals. • As a whole, the members of Alpha Gam have set themselves apart as leaders on campus and within the Greek system. Our chapter received the President’s Award at the Greek Excellence Awards in November and was named Order of Omega’s Most Outstanding Sorority in April. • The most rewarding part about my position is the opportunity to interact with all of our wonderful members on a daily basis and learn from each of them.

chapter’s involvement with the Alpha Phi Foundation. Sorority members of Alpha Phi throughout the nation support women’s cardiac care through the foundation. This past February, we held our first annual Red Dress Gala here in Tuscaloosa. Alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and members of the Tuscaloosa community came out to support the Alpha Phi Foundation at the Gala. These individuals helped us to raise $10,000 in donations for the foundation. • Alpha Phi has women involved in academic organizations such as Order of Omega, Crimson Belles, Student Ambassadors, Student Alumni Association, political organizations, volunteer organizations and many more significant organizations which require strong leadership qualities among participating members. • As the president of Alpha Phi, I have been given so many wonderful opportunities for leadership development.

Katie Callahan, president • With our philanthropy, Campfire USA, we are not only able to donate our money but also our time. We have a local camp in McCalla that we are able to go and clean and help with anything they need. • Our members are involved in many different organizations on campus. They all like to be involved, and we have many members that are leaders in organizations. • As president of my chapter, I am most excited when I see my members succeed in something. Our sisterhood is very strong, so when one succeeds, we all do. It is also great to see members be there for each other if something bad happens.

We have participated a lot more in our national philanthropy by hosting school supply and book drives, and were able to host an event with DKE to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, in honor of four of our members who have diabetes. • I feel that we are active on campus through SGA, Panhellenic involvement and club participation. • I think the most rewarding part about being the president is being able to challenge myself and to see what all I am capable of managing. I feel that the position can put you in stressful environments at times, and it allows you to discover your ability to work through them with the help of your chapter council.

I think the most rewarding part of being recruitment chair for me is being able to positively lead my house to bring in the future of Alpha Chi Omega. The fact that in the end I can say that I helped our house accomplish that means a lot to me. — Demi Lamb, Alpha Chi Omega I think the most rewarding part of being recruitment chair is finding new sisters. My favorite memory from when I went through recruitment would have to be when I met the girls rushing with me who are now my pledge sisters and best friends. I think being a leader in my chapter is such a blessing because I get to see the chapter grow. — Kaitlin Orr, Alpha Delta Chi Being a second year Recruitment Vice President for Alpha Delta Pi, I would say that the most rewarding part of the job is getting to watch our new members run out of the stadium with such excitement after opening their bids and then running back to the ADPi House with them as all of the actives cheer us on! — Keeley Burris, Alpha Delta Pi The overall experience of our entire chapter working together to accomplish a common goal is a great way to continue one of the many traditions at The University of Alabama. Just knowing that these girls will not only enjoy a collegiate experience but one day be supportive alumni of both Alpha Phi and the University is very rewarding. — Audrey Akin, Alpha Phi From our positions as recruitment chairs, we are able to constantly watch how our girls interact together day in and day out of the recruitment process. Recently, we were reminded about what makes Chi-O unique: after a long, grueling day of recruitment preparation, a large group of Chi-O’s of all ages went to tcby together. The foundation of this house is the relationships we build with one another, and in Chi-O we take recruitment as an opportunity to make us stronger. Seeing this firsthand is incredibly rewarding. — Meredith Gray and Brooke Fleming, Chi Omega Recruitment at Alabama is a great opportunity to meet new people and make lifelong friendships. Sorority life is a place you can call home. For it is the joy and fellowship of having those friendships that will help you to excel in your college career. — Caroline Campbell, Delta Delta Delta Although the job of being a recruitment chair can be stressful, I always keep in mind that our entire chapter’s work will pay off. The main reason why I was originally interested in being the recruitment chair was that I have had such a great experience being a Phi Mu, I wanted to show others how much I loved it, and how much I wanted them to be a part of it also. — Catherine Carter Sims and Crystal Deuel, Phi Mu

What’s your favorite memory from when you went through recruitment? I loved Bid Day! Everything about it was so exciting! Being a part of the tradition, the atmosphere and finally my new home was a feeling I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I ran to the lawn, put on my jersey, took tons of pictures and met the girls who are now my best friends. — Jessi Middlebrooks, Alpha Gamma Delta My favorite memory of being a PNM, was meeting my future best friend as I ran to the AOII house. ­— Mary Margaret McCord, Alpha Omicron Pi

The feeling of realizing that Theta felt like home and knowing that I wanted to be of their sisterhood was the best memory I experienced during recruitment. — Leslie Trammell, Kappa Alpha Theta

Given the opportunity to be a leader in my chapter is one of the best learning experiences I have ever had. It has been a opportunity that I feel will greatly benefit me later in life. It has taught me to work with all sorts of people who have varying opinions, looking to achieve the same goal. — Mary Herndon Nordmann, Pi Beta Phi I was honored to be chosen as the recruitment chair. I is so great to know that my sisters trust me with this job that affects us all. I have really enjoyed putting in all of the hard work to make this a smooth process, and getting to know all of my sisters even better makes this job worthwhile. — Lindsey Drexler, Zeta Tau Alpha Being a leader in my chapter allows me to use my skills to help make my chapter grow. — Bekah Adams, Sigma Delta Tau

Nickname: Pi Phi Founded: April 28, 1867; Monmouth College Founded at UA: Sept. 19, 1949 Chapter name: Alabama Beta Flower: Wine carnation Colors: Wine and silver blue Mascot: Angel Philanthropy: Literacy Famous sorority members: Jennifer Garner, Faye Dunaway, Susan Akin, Margaret Truman, Cindy Crawford Website: ua

From Jamie Burke, president • As a chapter, we imple-

mented Pi Beta Phi’s national program, Champions are Readers program, in the thirdgrade classrooms at Holt Elementary last October. This one-month program helps raise reading levels through a fun, themed program workbook. Pi Beta Phi members read with third-graders and formed relationships with the students that gave them one-on-one attention and an accountability partner to help track their growth. After this one-month program was over, we continued to read with students at Holt four times a week for the remainder of the school year. • One aspect of Pi Phi that I found so attractive while participating in recruitment was how much variety there was in the house; everyone was from so many different places and interested in so many different things. • It is so rewarding to see change for the better happen in a chapter under your leadership. Watching the plans that my executive council and I put on paper last November come into fruition has been one of the best parts of holding this office.

Zeta Tau Alpha • Nickname: Zeta • Founded: Oct. 15, 1898; Longwood College • Founded at UA: April 11, 1910 • Chapter name: Nu • Symbols: Five-pointed crown and strawberry • Flower: White violet • Colors: Turquoise blue and steel gray • Mascot: Bunny • Philanthropy: Breast cancer awareness and education • Motto: “Seek the Noblest.” • Famous sorority members: ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews; actress Nicole Paggi; Susan Ford Bales, daughter of President Gerald Ford; Lynda Johnson Robb, daughter of President Lyndon B. Johnson; news anchor Faith Daniel; actress Betty Buckley • Website: www.bamazeta. net

From Catherine Taylor, president • Zeta Tau Alpha’s national philanthropy is breast cancer awareness and education. Here at UA we are proud to host many philanthropy events throughout the year such as: Barbecue for breast cancer, Drive for a Cause partnered with the Alabama Gymnastics team, Yoplait yogurt lid collection and a cookbook consisting of members’ family recipes. • We currently have three girls who dance on the Crimson Cabaret: Morgan Vice, Stacy Patterson and Alexandria Giannini. Kelly Corr, a senior in our chapter, is SGA secretary, and Lauren Vardaman, also a senior, is the director of judicial affairs for Panhellenic. • As president, I value the fact that our entire house has worked very hard to create a legacy not only within Zeta Tau Alpha but throughout our campus.

Nickname: A-D-Chi Founded: UCLA in 1925 Founded at UA: Jan. 17, 2004 Chapter name: Tau Flowers: Gladiolus and delphinium Colors: Flame and blue Mascot: Lamb Philanthropy: Hannah Home Motto: “As in a mirror” Website:

From Kristin Gibbs, president • Alpha Delta Chi has been

putting money back to provide a car for our philanthropy, Hannah Home. Buying this car for the girls at Hannah Home to use will provide many opportunities that they may have missed if they had no car. • We are one of the smaller sororities on campus, but the girls within our sorority have played major roles in many organizations within the University. Some of the leadership activities the girls participate in include Avanti, Freshman Forum, RA, SGA, and the Business Honors Program. • The most rewarding part of being president of my chapter is watching all of the girls as they bond and create the sisterhood that is so important within a sorority. This bond helps the sorority become stronger while helping strengthen each girl’s individual character.

Freshmen Crawford Hodgsen, majoring in biology, and Madison Harwood, majoring in public relations, try to stay cool outside of the Alpha Phi house on Aug. 12 during sorority recruitment.

Sigma Delta Tau Nickname: Sigma Delta Tau Founded: March 25, 1917; Cornell University Founded at UA: May 10, 1935 Chapter name: Rho Symbol: Torch Flower: Yellow tea rose Colors: Café au lait and old blue Mascot: Teddy bear Philanthropy: Tuscaloosa’s One Place (local); Prevent Child Abuse America (national) Famous sorority members: Christy Carlson Romano; Joan Rivers; Dr. Joyce Brothers; Suzie Katz, Miss America Website: www.bama.

From Miriam Fry, president • I’m most proud of SDT’s successful “Pinwheels for PCAA” project which was a project launched by our national philanthropy, Prevent Child Child Abuse America, in an effort to raise money for the cause by selling pinwheels and having each chapter create a pinwheel garden. Each pinwheel in the garden represents a child that has been positively affected by the money we raised. Our chapter contributed more than $500. • Our chapter has shown leadership on campus by having sisters who are a part of the SGA, Lambda Sigma, Cardinal Key and Order of Omega. Three of our members also serve on Hillel Board. Hillel is The Center for Jewish Life. • The most rewarding part of being president is seeing what a difference I can make in the lives of SDT members. Our members are afforded a great sorority experience, and its so rewarding to be an influencing part of it.
