Congratulations to our 2018 Pi Chi's!!!
On Thursday night, hundreds of Auburn students gathered in the Village for Pi Chi callouts. Callouts are a tradition unique to Auburn. After applying and interviewing for an organization, applicants gather behind Cater Hall to learn if they have been chosen for membership.
The women chosen will serve as counselors during Recruitment in the Fall. Pi Chi's undergo training all throughout the Spring semester and then disaffiliate from their sororities at the beginning of the summer. They serve as role models, leaders, and friends to Potential New Members.
Members of REB and Exec lined up and shouted out the 124 names of the 2018 Pi Chi's. Afterwords, the women who were selected got to celebrate with cupcakes and cow tags (another Auburn tradition).
Congratulations, ladies! We cannot wait to watch y'all lead in August!
Emily is a junior from Alpharetta, Georgia, majoring in finance. Fun fact: she shares a birthday with everyone's favorite wizard, Harry Potter.
As Liaison to SGA, she keeps Panhellenic updated about SGA news and events. She chose this role so people would know all SGA does.
Her favorite part of being a member of SGA has been planning the Camp War Eagle Pep Rallies for incoming freshmen.
Emily Browning is serving as Director of Continuous Open Bidding.
Emily is a senior from Roswell, Georgia, majoring in nursing. As Director of Continuous Open Bidding, she works with chapters participating in COB and helps coordinate with girls who are looking to join a sorority, mainly in the Spring. When asked why she wanted to serve in this role, she said, "I've loved my time as a Greek woman, and I love the opportunity to help out women who want to experience Greek life potentially get that chance. I believe Greek life has something to offer for everyone, and I know personally, I've grown so much over the last three years because of it."
When she went through recruitment, her funniest memory is going into parties, while it was pouring rain outside, and her hair dripping onto the chapter rooms' floors as she was soaking wet. Her favorite memory was running home to her future big on Bid Day.
Her advice to a Potential New Member is "Be yourself! The girls you are meeting during the parties are probably just as nervous- if not more than you. Let them see how wonderful you are and what all you have to offer."
