A Letter From Our President

Prior to starting my college career at Hofstra, I was a quiet girl in high school who didn't have many good  friends. I had thought about joining a sorority in college but was very nervous and did not think I could do it. Reluctantly I decided to go to Meet the Greeks and see what Greek life was all about.  I instantly felt a connection with several of the sisters in Alpha Beta Theta but I still was not sure Greek life was for me. As a result of the warmth and friendly sisterhood that was extended to me I decided to give it a shot. All my AOB sisters made me feel so welcome and at home that I knew I had made the right decision. In this new chapter of my life in which I could have felt all alone, I now had all these wonderful sisters that were always there to support me and almost instantly became a huge part of my life. They made me feel so comfortable and part of the “family”. They quickly became some of my best friends who I trusted and confided in tremendously. I suddenly felt like I had about 60 sisters/best friends. We had so much fun spending time together getting to know one another I felt like I knew them all my life. I gained so much confidence and I felt like I really belonged in AOB.

On a very nervous whim and lots of encouragement from my sisters I decided to run for the position of treasurer after only one semester in the org. I thought that as a math major I would be a good fit for the position, but being so new to the org I did not think that I would actually get elected. To my surprise, I was elected and was very excited to be part of the Executive Board of this sorority which has become such an important part of my life. As Treasurer, I needed to step out of my comfort zone and interact with my sisters in an authoritative way. I excelled in the position, with hard work and the love and respect of my sisters. Because of this, I decided I wanted to do whatever I could to make the org that was so important to me even better, so I decided to run for President. Once again I didn’t think that I would actually be elected but here I am President of Alpha Theta Beta and I could not be prouder.

As a member of AOB I have made so many great friendships that I know will last a life time. We have shared so many laughs, good times and adventures even with the challenges from Covid-19 that I couldn’t imagine not having them in my life. I guess what I am trying to say is that if you are not sure if Greek life is for you, you should give it a try! You have nothing to lose, but stand to gain an abundance of sisters who may be your future bridesmaids, godparents to ur children, and most importantly best friends for life.

-Jenn Fink, AOB Undergraduate President
