Iota Upsilon

at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

Letter From Membership Vice President

Dear Potential New Members,

My Name is Kelsey Reichert, and I am the Membership Vice President of the Iota Upsilon Chapter here at SIUe. On behalf of myself and my sisters, I would like to thank you for taking the time to learn more about our Panhellenic Community! While recruitment can seem like a hectic time, know that this is a very exciting time for us. We all look forward to the amazing opportunity that is expanding our sisterhood. 

My membership in Alpha Xi Delta really has changed my life. It has given me more than just sisters; they’re my roommates, best friends, cheerleaders and motivators. These women have pushed me to become a better person and made me realize my true potential. Alpha Xi Delta is more than just a sorority. We are an organization not only dedicated to making our campus and community a better place through our service but also advocating, educating and raising money for Autism Speaks, our national philanthropic partner.

Throughout the recruitment process, I hope you can catch a glimpse of what being an Alpha Xi Delta sister means to us. Just as we will share with you, we hope you will be inspired to let us know more about yourself. As Membership Vice President, I would like to personally welcome you to recruitment and hope that you will find your home in the Panhellenic Community. Calling Alpha Xi Delta home has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and I hope that this journey is as rewarding and enjoyable for all of you as it was for me!

Please take some time to explore our website and a gain a closer look at Alpha Xi Delta.
