When I first began my current role of Vice President of Communications for my sorority chapter, I reached out to a sister in the PR department at AOII headquarters. We chatted about ideas for blogging, social media and more. I noted my experience on USF Panhellenic’s executive board and I was offered to be a guest blogger on the headquarter blog! I truly enjoyed narrating my panhellenic journey.
After I introduced the USF Panhellenic Blog* I sent the word out to as much of USF as I could. I was pleased when USF News notified me asking to do a story on the success of the inspirational stories. *Note: blog is no longer in existence as further leadership moved on to Tumblr.
In 2011, I attended the Southeastern Panhellenic Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. At this conference I was introduced the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation. “The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation represents a worldwide humanitarian effort – by sorority women – to help girls and women access education.” I was so motivated to create this movement at USF, so I presented it to my community the week after I arrived. The motion unanimously passed by all chapters and is currently our panhellenic philanthropy. I then pursued the position of Panhellenic Director of Philanthropy that year where I helped raise awareness through campus events and fundraising. This is a blog post spotlighting USF. The content is written by me and edited with commentary by the blogger.
