Madison serves as Panhellenic's President.
Why did you apply for Panhellenic Exec?
I applied for Panhellenic President after serving as Junior Panhellenic Delegate for my chapter, the Liaison to Greek Councils on Panhellenic Cabinet, and as a Pi Chi during Recruitment 2019. Through these roles I was given a front-row seat to see the impact that Panhellenic has on our campus and community. These positions had taught me so much and served me so well that I knew I wanted to give back and serve the women of this organization in a special way. I saw areas for growth in the Panhellenic community and wanted to help bring the council to new heights by capitalizing on the potential that already existed, and reinforcing the values we are founded upon. Applying for the Panhellenic Executive Board gave me the opportunity to do exactly that, and in bigger ways than I ever could’ve imagined.
What is your favorite part about your position?
My favorite part of serving as the Panhellenic President has been the relationships formed with the incredible team of women I have had the privilege of leading and being led by. I have learned, grown, and accomplished more than I could have ever thought possible this year because of the strength and steadfastness of my Executive Board and the entire Panhellenic community. Having these women encourage me, challenge me, and continually seek ways to enhance Auburn Panhellenic together in the midst of changes and trials is what has allowed our Council to see the success that it has this year, and I am so thankful to know them.
What was your recruitment experience like and what is one of your biggest tips for women going through recruitment?
My recruitment experience was filled with new faces, new opportunities, and my first taste of what Alabama heat is really like. As an out-of-state student, I remember feeling unprepared for recruitment in the SEC, but quickly learned that Panhellenic Recruitment is much less about preparing and much more about trying to form genuine relationships with the women you meet in each chapter and even in. your own Pi Chi group throughout the week. My biggest piece of advice for potential new members would be to try to make friends rather than try to impress others. You will quickly realize that there are friends everywhere and that while each of our 18 chapters are wonderfully unique, being a member of any Auburn Panhellenic chapter will give you the same opportunity to excel in academics, leadership, involvement, and philanthropic service. Oh, and practically: eat well and drink LOTS of water. Whether recruitment is in person, online, or hybrid experience, the days are long and your body needs fuel!

If you could high-five anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
#Pre-COVID, I would love to high-five John Mayer. What a guy! In 2020, I’d settle for a wave.
