Iota Phi

at American University

Letter From Membership Vice President

Dear Potential New Members,

The Iota Phi chapter of Alpha Xi Delta is so excited you are starting (or continuing!) a new chapter in your life here at American University! We hope Greek Life becomes a part of that new chapter as you discover your place here on campus. The ladies of Alpha Xi Delta cannot wait to meet you this year!

Alpha Xi Delta is strongly rooted in tradition and values such as knowledge, sisterhood, leadership and service. Alpha Xi Delta is a sisterhood of truly beautiful and inspiring women. The sisters of Iota Phi make up an organization of women who are passionate about not only Alpha Xi Delta, but American University and the D.C. community as well. We hope that throughout the following semester you get to know us better and realize that Alpha Xi Delta is more than a sorority, it is a support system.

Being a part of this chapter has helped me become the best version of myself. Our mission statement, “inspiring women to realize their potential”, is something that my sisters and I all hold each other to. This has motivated me to become more outgoing, to take more chances, and to work hard to help myself and my chapter grow. Alpha Xi Delta has provided so much for me and allowed me to accomplish much more than I ever thought I was capable of. Joining and becoming a sister of Alpha Xi Delta was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have grown so much personally and professionally since joining Alpha Xi Delta, and my sisters have been by my side through it all.

More than anything else, Alpha Xi has brought me so much happiness. The friends and connections I have made within this chapter are something I hold very close to my heart, and will cherish much longer than just my time in college. Words cannot describe the immense love I have for all my sisters, and I hope that you find that same support system within the Panhellenic community.

I feel certain that joining Greek life at American University will be one of the greatest joys of your college career. It is my sincere wish you find a home that means as much to you as Alpha Xi Delta means to me. Upon starting your journey through formal recruitment, keep in mind these simple questions: Where do I want to call my home? Who will help me become the best version of myself? Where will I succeed with an amazing support system by my side? I found the answer in Alpha Xi Delta.

I encourage you to take some time to explore the rest of our website and get to know the sisters of Iota Phi better. I wish you all the best of luck with your time at AU and cannot wait to meet you at Formal Recruitment in the spring!
