I decided to rush ASK during my spring quarter of my freshman year because I wanted a home away from home. When trying to find where I fit in, I realized that many organizations and fraternities on campus didn’t quite tie sisterhood and academics together. I wanted to be a part of a group of girls that were passionate about their education and career, but also emphasized relationships with one another. ASK is the perfect sorority for me because everybody is encouraged to succeed academically, while valuing the importance of genuine bonds with one another. I can count on all of my sisters to catch me when I fall, and also help me develop as a student. Having a diverse range of STEM majors means that everybody can benefit in one way or another. My sisters have helped me gain insight on my education journey, provided me with professional opportunities, and of course, a sisterhood that’s like no other.
