Dear Potential New Member,
My name is Maddie Aichinger, and I am the proud chapter president of the Alpha Lambda chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta here at The Ohio State University. I am so excited that you are considering joining the Greek Life community!
Going into college, I always knew I wanted to be a part of a Greek organization since both my parents, and my older sister were involved in Greek life. Being from out of state, I struggled to find my people during freshman year, and Alpha Gam ended up being my saving grace. Going through recruitment, I always felt so comfortable with the women at Alpha Gam, and I consistently felt relieved to be back at the AGD house every round. After receiving my bid to Alpha Gam, I was so excited to start this new chapter in my college career. I became friends with some of the most genuine, kind, and hilarious people I had ever met. I knew I had finally found my people and my home. Every year, I continue to meet new people in the chapter who inspire me with their compassion and drive for leadership.
Alpha Gam has given me so much throughout my time as a member, which is why I decided to run for president. I felt a responsibility to give back to the chapter and all the girls who have helped me become the woman I am today. I owe the chapter so much, and I cannot wait to continue building the community that I love so dearly.
Just as I have found my home in Alpha Gam, there are hundreds of girls every year who find their own home in one of the many chapters that PHA supports. As you go through recruitment, try to keep an open mind as each chapter has something special to offer you. Each one is unique and amazing in their own way, and I know you will find the place where you can be your authentic self. Just remember to relax and be yourself. From all of us here at Alpha Gam, we are so excited to meet you, and cannot wait for you to be a part of this incredible community!
Maddie Aichinger, Chapter President
