Letter from the Chapter
Welcome Potential New Members to Sigma Kappa!
My name is Jennie Peteka and I am the Recruitment Chair at the Alpha Mu Chapter of Sigma Kappa here at the University of Michigan! I just wanted to briefly express my excitement for Recruitment 2018 and welcome each of you to Michigan and to experience our sisterhood!
When I came to Michigan I was not sure if Greek Life was for me. I worried that going Greek was exactly like it is portrayed in the movies; superficial, stereotypical, and stuck up. My hesitation disappeared the moment I walked into Sigma Kappa. I realized that these girls and this sorority was the opposite of the people and organization I feared joining. These incredible women are now not only my sisters, but also my best friends, my therapists, my comic relief, my mentors, and my biggest supporters. Sigma Kappa is my home, a place where I fit in by being myself, but where I also grew to be a better me. Our chapter is filled with the funniest, friendliest, and most genuine people I know and I know that our friendships will last throughout our lifetimes.
Ultimately, I went Greek to find friends who would be my bridesmaids someday. However, I’ve found much more than that through Sigma Kappa. I have been constantly challenged to find ways to apply our values of Friendship, Service, Personal Growth, and Loyalty to all walks of my life.
I will forever cherish my time at Sigma Kappa and all the friendships it has brought me. I have never once regretted going through formal recruitment and I highly encourage you to give it a chance and do the same. I hope you are lucky enough to find a group of people that you adore as much as I adore my sisters. We cannot wait to get to know you and see you in the Fall!
We are ready for you New Member Class of 2018!
