The sisters of Alpha Pi Phi would like to extend a warm welcome to the newest 20 members our sisterhood. This past weekend, our Xi class was officially initiated and we could not be more proud of the development and wonderful character qualities these ladies have shown in the past couple of months.
Read on to explore why our Xi class chose Alpha Pi Phi, and some of their favourite moments so far:
"I loved rushing Alpha Pi Phi because I met so many amazing girls that I can now call my sisters. Thank you Alpha Pi Phi for giving me a home away from home."
- Kendra Kelly
"Joining Alpha Pi Phi this fall was the best decision I could have made in university. I'm already way more involved on campus, I'm always busy with social events, philanthropy and school. Most importantly I know that I have 80 sisters that I can go to any time, day or night, for love and support. Sisterhood is the main reason I joined and I can't express how strong the bond is between all of the girls, and how excited I am for the future with them."'
- Maya Muto
"Pledging Alpha Pi Phi is one of the best decisions I've ever made by far. Ive learned so many valuable lessons from this group of girls that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Not only did I fall in love with my fellow Xi class members for their dedication, grace, strength and beauty but also Alpha Pi Phi as an entire organization. The people you meet, the memories you make and the connections you form with your sisters is indescribable and I am forever grateful for every sister who helped me along my pledging period and who I know will be there for me for the rest of my life."
"There's something my grandma used to say along the lines of "Pick your friends like you pick your favourite books, few but well chosen." This was true before I joined APP but then I realized I had way more favourites than I ever thought possible. The girls I've met and have gotten to know have proved that it's possible to have over 180 good friendships and this is the most support I have ever felt."
- Sydney Wilkins
"Through Alpha Pi Phi, I've really learned a lot about myself. I have come out of my shell a lot and have had so much fun at all of the events. APP has taught me how to prioritize, balance, and put my all into everything I do. My favourite memories are definitely my sister dates, semi-formal, and the sisterhood with my Xi class."
- Alyssa Young
"Since rushing this fall, APP has given me the best support system. Whether I need a fun night out, a study buddy, or someone to talk to, a sister is always there. After only a few short months, I know that I have made friendships that will last a lifetime." - Alaya Fuller
"APP has allowed me to better myself through various philanthropic opportunities, ensure my academics come first, all while making lifelong friendships. I have met my best friends through APP and I am forever thankful for this amazing organization." - Mackenzie Cielen-Gough
"I have never been happier to have joined something more positive and family-like. It has changed everything for the better and I am blessed to have met a beautiful group of girls inside and out."
