Alpha Xi Delta

Alpha Beta at Cornell University

Letter From Membership Vice President

Dear Potential New Members,

As Alpha Xi Delta’s Membership Vice President, I want to personally congratulate you on getting accepted into Cornell University and welcome you to our Alpha Beta chapter of Alpha Xi Delta! Sorority recruitment is such a great experience and I am so glad you are interested in it, so I want to share with you my amazing experience with Alpha Xi Delta.

Going into college is a very exciting yet nerve-racking time, therefore I couldn’t wait to go through formal recruitment and find a community of strong women. While my recruitment experience was entirely online, I am so grateful you get the opportunity to meet sisters from each of Cornell's 11 chapters in person come January.  Throughout the rounds you talk to so many amazing women and find the ones you can really see yourself spending the next four years with. I  found women in Alpha Xi Delta that were so empowering and welcoming, and I could not wait to be a part of something so special.

Throughout formal recruitment I saw my own values align with Alpha Xi Delta’s values of sisterhood, service, leadership and knowledge. To this day they have held true and I’ve found women who share them with me but are all unique in amazing and inspiring ways. Alpha Xi Delta’s mission statement of “Inspiring women to realize their potential” has resonated with me throughout my experience in this sorority. These women have pushed me from the start to be the best I can be and saw things in me I didn’t even see in myself yet. I have found mentors in alumni, family in my lineage, and friendship across member classes. My hope is that when you go through formal recruitment you find what I have found in Alpha Xi Delta.
