PNM Advice: Don’t shy away from going to a lot of rush events and taking your time to decide which organization is the right fit for you! Some organizations require you to go to a specific amount of events and that can be extremely overwhelming, especially when you’re afraid it’s just going to be awkward and uncomfortable for you. I love that Chi Beta offers a handful of different rush events, so everyone who is interested has the opportunity to come out to as many as they can according to their schedule!

I went to one rush event my pledge semester, only because I heard about Chi Beta Delta two hours before the last one! My one regret is not hearing about Chi Beta sooner. 😉

Summer GMB Trip to Nicaragua

By: Kim Nguyen

14039951_1193036167384303_68770832127832151_nAs I entered the sky bridge, walking towards the plane, it finally occurred to me what I was about to embark on. In all honesty, I had no idea what to expect. Sure, I had seen the itinerary and talked to veteran brigaders, but schedules and words do not compare to the actual experience. My brigade trip to Nicaragua was incredible from beginning to end and I am very fortunate to have been able to contribute to the Global Brigades cause.

A Final Goodbye from the 2014-15, 2015-16 CJO

10312551_962329940487480_5729509167006906883_nBy: Alyssa Aleman

I always knew this day would come, the day I would have to walk away from the University of Texas with so much joy, yet so much pain. When I arrived here 4 years ago, I was uncertain of what my time here would entail…flash forward to weeks away from graduating, and my life has been changed forever for the better. UT’s slogan is “What Starts Here Changes the World”, but what started here has changed MY world. After 3 uncertain semesters at UT, I found the most certain, constant and beautiful thing that would change my world in every way imaginable, and that was Chi Beta Delta.
12088151_908019529251855_2550264176785187838_nMy 5 semesters in Chi Beta have inspired me, excited me, and put me through some of the most trying times, yet it has easily been one of the most rewarding experiences I would not trade for the world. I have developed character, bettered myself, I’ve learned how to be a better speaker, manage my time, delegate responsibility, and I’ve had the best time of my life doing it. By serving as CJO for 3 semesters, I’ve learned how to lead. I’ve learned that leading is not about being the best at what you do, but about caring the most that it get done. There will never be enough words to describe how much each sister of XBD means to me–in each of their smiles I have found happiness, inspiration, unparalleled selflessness, support, and most importantly I’ve found my home. 13087700_1006851342702006_7537007290714283637_nEach of them has impacted me in more ways than I could’ve ever thought possible when I first found Chi Beta. As I look back on formals, boat parties, study dates, shopping days, early mornings spent volunteering, Round Up, lazy days and Spring Breaks in Padre and Vegas, there is one thing that does not change about these memories–my sisters. They have been there through the highest of my highs and my lowest of the lows.

So as I walk away from Chi Beta as alumna and close another chapter in my life, I leave a message to the sisters who I have met and who will continue our Chi Beta Legacy…

I’m so blessed and thankful to have found this sisterhood and to know each and every one of you. The memories we have all made, I will always save. Though the future is uncertain and we are not sure of what we are heading towards, know that I wish you each love and luck and for each of you the world just opens up. Remember that it costs nothing to be kind and happiness can be shared with something as simple as a smile. You have all touched my life in countless ways. Now go change the world, and know that where the world may take me…in my heart you’ll always be. ❤

 

The Importance of Diversity

IMG_4257By: Olivia Kean

Many people start their lives completely convinced of what career or field they want to be in. I was one of those people who believed that no matter what, I was going to be a doctor of some kind. When I was growing up, I switched around between types of doctors such as pediatrician, neurosurgeon, cardiologist and finally neurologist. By the time I graduated high school, I was completely convinced that I would be a neurologist in life, so I decided to major in neuroscience, which I thought would be the perfect degree for me and my future.
