From our Recruitment Chair:
Dear Potential New Members,
My name is Allison Wrape and I am honored and blessed to be the 2017 Recruitment Chair for the Iota Kappa chapter of Chi Omega at Troy University. We are so happy that you chose Troy and are even more excited that you are going through sorority recruitment!
Recruitment can be overwhelming and crazy, but it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your college career. Going through recruitment I remember being so worried about what I was wearing and making a good first impression, but one of the best pieces of advice that I can give you as a Potential New Member is to just be yourself! I have learned that it is the girl's personality that leaves the biggest impression on sisters during recruitment.
Our chapter is made up of wonderful, unique, and diverse women of different walks of life, backgrounds, hometowns, majors, and personalities, and we have all found our home in Chi Omega. We cannot wait to show you why we love Chi Omega, and hope you find your home with us, too.

Meet our New Member Educator!
Name: Shelby Jenkins
Hometown: Athens, AL
Major: Elementary Education
Tell us a little about what you do as New Member Educator!
Hey y'all! My name is Shelby Jenkins, and I'm so humbled to be able to serve Iota Kappa as New Member Educator this fall. My role as "Mama Hoot" is to teach the young women joining our sisterhood about Chi Omega's history and traditions while guiding them during their transition into college and sorority life. I get the privilege of planning some of the most special moments of the New Member Experience, such as bid day, swaps, new member retreat, and initiation. However, I am most excited about getting to know each and every one of our new members, not only during their New Member Experience, but throughout their college years. As a senior, I've developed such a deep love for this sisterhood, and I can't wait to share the joy of Chi Omega Iota Kappa with our new members this fall!
Sisterhood Support Team
I, of course, can't take on such an incredible responsibility by myself, which is why I'll have the help of the Sisterhood Support Team Leaders. SST leaders are older sisters that will take part in guiding the new members during their new member experience. They'll attend swaps, socials, and weekly meetings with the new members. I can't wait to meet all the lovely young women this fall and I'm so excited to watch them fall in love with Chi Omega, just as I have.
