There are only a few weeks left of the Winter semester, and the Pi class has been reflecting on their year in Alpha Pi Phi and what it taught them about sisterhood. Here is what sisterhood means to the Pi Class:
"What sisterhood means to me is being surrounded by a group of girls that constantly push you to be your best and empower you. They're always there to have your back and make you laugh until it hurts"
- Jasmine Blackett
“To me sisterhood is having a group of empowering women to pick you up every time you fall and are a constant support system in your life. People always ask me why I love being in a sorority and it is because I can truly say I gained not only over 70 amazing friends but 70 girls that I can call my sisters”
- Molly Burke
"Sisterhood to me is not only a group of girlfriends to enjoy spending time with, but a unit of strong women that empower one another to become our best selves. Sisterhood is about helping and encouraging everyone we interact with together, not just those within our organization. The type of sisterly love that is given and received is the most pure form of friendship. Every word spoken, or action acted is always in the best interest of those affected. Our goal as a Sisterhood is to lift each other up and to prevent anyone from falling down. The best feeling is to look to my side and know that no matter which one of my sisters is standing beside me they’ll always have my back."
- Mikayla Nicole Cassack
"Sisterhood is a support system that constantly encourages you to be the best version of yourself"
- Paige Cooper
"Sisterhood to me means knowing that I’ll always have a group of girls that I can count on for constant support and love. There is always someone I can go to for advice or even just to talk to if I’m having a bad day."
- Vanessa DeMeester Guloy
"Sisterhood means finding girls who will be your best friends no matter how close or far you are from each other"
- Hannah Gartland
"To me, sisterhood means you will always have people who love you, support you, and will be with you through anything. Being able to be part of such a huge community of girls who have so much love in their hearts, makes me feel at home. Without these strong women, I don’t know where I would be today, and I’m so thankful to be able to call them my sisters for life."
- Jessica Gerwing
"To me sisterhood is having a group of women who are beautiful inside and out be your biggest supporters who cheer you on no matter what, and always encourage you to be your best self"
- Emily Hart
"Sisterhood is feeling at home in a community of unique and like minded individuals who would drop anything to be at your side"
- Kate Loibl
"Sisterhood to me is the perfect blend of people supporting your success but also lifting you up when you fall. It's the people who will give you snaps when you get good grades but also the people who will be your partners in crime. Sisterhood is the people you tell your deepest thoughts to but also your dirtiest secrets"
- Rae Madge
"Sisterhood is having an army of unique, beautiful, strong women all from entirely different backgrounds behind you to pick you up when your down and celebrate your accomplishments with you unconditionally, every day, forever."
- Erin McGuire
"Sisterhood to me means having a group of girls who have my back no matter what. Whether it's a late night phone call or a much needed shoulder to cry on, sisters are always there. Sisterhood is a judgement-free safe space where no one feels out of place and everyone feels accepted."
- Meghan Page
"Sisterhood is a support system made up of all different kinds of girls who are always willing to "help a sister out." People who stick with you, and distract you from the bumps in the road. Girls who are proud of you when you hit your peaks, and will drag you out at your lowest points in life. I'm so thankful for my sisters."
- Giovanna Sacca
"To me sisterhood is a bond that empowers women to love, grown and learn more about themselves and those around them. Since becoming a sister of Alpha Pi Phi I have experienced a kinship like no other, being apart of this amazing organization has also brought a great deal of security into my life. No matter where I go or what I do I won’t be alone and that there will always be someone I can count on for help and support, because that’s what sisters do."
-Kathleen Quinn Steeves
"What sisterhood means to me is plain and simple. Family. Anyone who knows me knows I was raised to always love, protect and fight for my family and that's what this sisterhood is to me. People that will love unconditionally, people that will always protect and be there for each other, and people that will fight for one another no matter how hard the battle. I love these girls, and I always will."
