A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
It feels so surreal to introduce myself to you all as the 2023 Phi Mu President for the Alpha Mu chapter at Auburn University. The opportunity to lead and represent the most inspiring and hard working group of women that I have ever known is one that I will cherish for the rest of my life. My hope and prayer is that every girl has the chance to be surrounded by a community that pushes them to be the best version of themselves and allows them to feel seen- because it is truly the best feeling in the world.
The group of women in this chapter have inspired me in more ways than I can count. They have allowed me to see the world through a different set of eyes and have taught me how to love more like Jesus. They are bold and unique in their own ways and share a sense of talent that is indescribable. Watching each of them shine not only in this chapter but all over campus in leadership positions is something that makes my heart shine the brightest with pride and joy. In Phi Mu, we share a love for the Lord, our campus, our philanthropy, our academics, and our sisterhood- which is one of love, honor, and truth in all things. This group of women naturally radiates as they walk into a room, and I am so honored to be a part of this special bond.
Coming into college is one of the biggest turning points in your life- whether you’re coming from in state, out of state, big town or small. It is never easy, and change is inevitable. You may be moving from the house you have lived in for 18 years and leaving loved ones that you spend 24/7 with, anxious about living on your own, worried about juggling classes and exams, or simply nervous about the unknown that college will surely bring. Although these stresses are ones we all feel and are human nature, I can assure you that Auburn will bring you people to confide in in any trench or season of uncertainty. People that will take time to learn about the things that make you smile, your sense of humor,, your biggest fears, and will carry your weight on their shoulder like it is their own. Before you know it, you will have a small army that will stand behind you to celebrate your biggests wins and hold you closely in your most fearful times. Be boldly yourself and be proud of who you are, and that will attract a community that will soon turn into your “one big happy family”.
