Dear Potential New Member,

            Welcome to the Alpha Eta Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at Purdue University! My name is Bridgette Joslin, and I currently serve as the president of the chapter. I am so excited for the recruitment journey to begin, for you to get to know us as well as us to get to know you! We cannot wait to share with you our sisterhood and welcome you into our family!

            When I began at Purdue, I was very unsure of what I wanted to major in, what clubs to join, or who to be friends with. I am from Rochester Hills, MI, so I didn't know a lot of people coming to Purdue. I knew that it was important to branch out and meet new people, which led me to decide to rush. I went into recruitment with very little knowledge of the houses and what each had to offer, so I made it my goal to keep an open mind and find where I felt that I fit in most. Right from the beginning, I knew Alpha Xi Delta was going to be a house that I would keep around during the process. Each conversation felt natural and it seemed like I had known the girls for a lot longer than just 5 minutes. Each round I came back, I felt that I could be myself without judgment and that is exactly what I was looking for. I am so thankful for the positive experience Alpha Xi Delta gave me during recruitment, and I hope we can do the same for you soon!

            Our chapter is home to girls with a wide variety of majors, backgrounds, and passions, and through this, it is a place to learn and grow from one another. But nonetheless, we are a sisterhood with a bond like no other. Every day is exciting in the Alpha Xi Delta sisterhood, whether it consists of getting ice cream, going on walks, or just studying together, there is always someone there to keep you company. One of my favorite memories that I have was our mood boosting jam session that I had with my roommates in the sorority house where we blasted our favorite songs for no reason other than to make each other laugh. We also host numerous sponto (spontaneous) and formal dances each year, as well as sisterhood retreats and big/little dates, which have never failed to make for a great time. We cannot wait to have our new group of sisters to share these great events with!

            I am thankful every day for the opportunities, friendships, and memories that Alpha Xi Delta has added to my college experience. Without this house, college wouldn’t have been half as amazing as it has been for me. I hope that we can help you to see the opportunities that we and the Greek Life community have to offer! Please feel free to check out our Instagram (@purduealphaxi) and youtube channel (purdue alpha xi) to get further insight into our sisterhood! Best of luck with recruitment and the upcoming school year. We are so excited to meet you!
