My name is Zoe Waller, and I have the honor of serving as the OH Beta chapter of Pi Beta Phi’s chapter president. I am a sophomore from Dayton, Ohio (Go Flyers!), but I come from a huge buckeye family. Let me give you a sneak peek into what Pi Phi is all about!
Coming out of first semester of freshman year, I felt like a tiny fish in a huge pond. Even when you’re surrounded by 60,000 people, it’s easy to feel lonely. I was yearning for belonging and a place to call home. When I walked into 1845 Indianola Ave, I knew I had happened upon something special. Pi Beta Phi saved my experience here at Ohio State. The women of this organization have taught me so much about friendship, service, and loyalty, and I can’t thank them enough for that.
I try to live my life by the saying, “you bloom where you are planted.” Pi Phi has not only allowed me to bloom, but to thrive. It has provided me and my sisters with the tools and things I need to grow and has molded me into the person I am today. Being Chapter President isn’t something that I would have imagined for myself, but I am so grateful for it every day.
If you’re on the fence about going through recruitment, take that leap. I can only hope that you’ll find your home, as I’ve found mine. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I think is too good to pass up.
