When I decided to rush ASK this past fall, I had no idea how much it could change my college experience. Like many others, coming into my freshman year I was filled with nerves and excitement to meet new people and form the lasting bonds we all hear about with college friends. Yet, I soon realized it wasn’t everything I imagined it would be, and meeting new people in college was a lot harder than I expected. Joining ASK changed all of this for me as I was welcomed by a group of amazing girls that made me feel as if I had a place on campus where I belonged. I rushed with my best friend in the fall, and we both got initiated into the Delta class and met so many incredible girls. ASK is a group of strong women who support each other both academically and socially, and I could not be prouder to be a sister. I love them with all my heart, and now I know I not only have college friends for life, but I have my entire sisterhood.
