Time Has Come...

Eat, Sleep, Breathe, Recruitment

Happy September!

In September, we begin journey back to the wonderful world of Recruitment! Many may not know but, the Delta Psi chapter is honored to have Samantha Weiner and Simmone Horman from Headquarters here with us to help with Recruitment process. During Spirit Week, sisters came together to learn new chants and songs along with practicing our recruiting skills all while building our sisterhood. We rediscovered the reasons we joined Phi Sigma Sigma.

Headquarters recently added to two new organizations as sub-organizations. They feel these two organizations encompasses our values: lifelong learning, inclusiveness, and leadership through service. I am proud to say that Kids in Need Foundation and Practice Makes Perfect!

  1. Kids in Need Foundation's mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need.
  2. Practice Makes Perfect is based out of New York City, they offer summer programs in the underprivileged schools of New York City. Elementary and middle school students are partnered with an older high-achieving mentor, who come from the same high-need community as the student.

Please explore the link and videos for both of these amazing organizations :)

Alumna of the Month

Lauren Tannenbaum

This month our alumna of the month is the one and only Lauren Tannenbaum, Fall Class of 2010!!! She accepted her bid from Phi Sigma Sigma on September 12th, 2010 however, little did she know that signing that piece of paper would change the rest of her life. This is her story: "I was just a little, 17 year old baby who had just moved half way across the world and had no idea what was going on. I had never even thought about joining a sorority. I literally didn't sign up for Recruitment until the night before... that decision was the best decision I have ever made. Throughout my time as a collegian, I grew so much, I came out of my shell, I learned so much about everything, and had the time of my life! I wouldn't trade my Phi Sig experience for anything. I know it sounds cliche, but I really did find my best friends and my bridesmaids in Phi Sig... if I ever get married.

I graduated in May, 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Telecommunications and Film and a minor in Hospitality, Recreation and Resort Management. As an Alumna, I have been given the incredible opportunity to work at Headquarters. I am currently the Communications Manager, handling all of our social media, emails, website, etc.. Working at Headquarters has just made my love for Phi Sig grow even more. I have been able to experience so many different things including Convention in New Orleans, which was so amazing!

My life would be incomplete without Phi Sigma Sigma. I know that I will always have sisters to catch me when I fall and stand by me when I succeed. I am so incredibly honored to be a sister of the Delta Psi chapter and I cannot wait to see our beautiful sisterhood grow and live up to the potential I know that we have. Once a Phi Sigma Sigma, Always a Phi Sigma Sigma."

We are incredibly proud of Lauren and her accomplishments and we know she will continue to Aim High!!!!
