Welcome to the Rho Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Phi at The Ohio State University! My name is Maya Hollander and I am the current president of our chapter. Being able to lead this special and unique chapter is such an honor. I am so lucky to have these remarkable opportunities and to be a leader for such amazing women.
I will never forget my recruitment process. I went into recruitment with little information about any chapter or Greek life in general. This left me extremely nervous throughout the process, wondering how my recruitment experience would pan out. However, the one thing I was sure of after every round was how comfortable I felt talking to girls in AEPhi. Though my recruitment process was fully virtual, AEPhi made me feel as though I was welcome, no matter what.
Fast forward to now, AEPhi has given me more than I ever envisioned. On bid day, I didn’t know a single girl in the chapter. But now, I can confidently say I have
found my forever people, the girls who I can truly be myself around. Being a member of this sorority has given me the confidence to form connections not only with everyone in our chapter, but within the Greek Life community as well. Aside from the wonderful people, AEPhi has allowed me to blossom into the best version of myself. Each and every member of AEPhi is committed to upholding the ideals that our founders had in 1909. I am so proud to say my sisters have created an environment in which it is so easy to flourish!
I can say with confidence that joining AEPhi at The Ohio State University has been the best decision I have made in college so far. The passion I have toward this amazing group of women is unmatched. Through being a member of AEPhi, I have gained so much valuable leadership experience, for which I am so grateful. I have been given the honor to see how amazing AEPhi is, and I have made it my goal to share this chapter with as many women as possible. Alpha Epsilon Phi has truly impacted my life for the better. I will forever be grateful for the opportunities it has given me and the people I have met from being a part of this special organization.
My goal for each and every one of you is to feel the same comfort that I felt when I interacted with AEPhi girls. Although recruitment can be a bit uncertain, trust the process and trust how you feel while talking to active members in each chapter. At the end of the process, the clarity and happiness you feel when receiving your bid is unmatched. Embrace the recruitment process and you will end up where you are meant to be.
I am so excited that I get to play a part in your recruitment journey, I cannot wait to meet you all. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my words and I hope you enjoy everything our chapter has to offer!
