Adventure is out there!

 

“By replacing fear of the unknown with curiosity, we open ourselves up to an infinite stream of possibility.”

I know it has been a while since I have been able to blog; but boy have things been busy as the school year comes to a close. Being involved in so many different organizations on campus has opened the doors to so many new and exciting opportunities and adventures and definitely kept me busy!

Women’s Ambassador Program: 

The Women’s Ambassadors have had quite the busy semester! We have been calling prospective female students aiding them in their transition into college life. We had the opportunity to meet many of these students during preview day, where Embry-Riddle had record breaking number of incoming students! I was finally able to meet face-to-face some of the girls that I have been reaching out to all semester, and I am looking forward to meeting the remainder of my students in the Fall!

The ambassadors were able to attend the Celebrating Women in Aviation dinner this spring which was tons of fun. It’s a fun dinner with wonderful guest speakers, great food, and a chance to see our fellow female peers and faculty and staff members.

One of my biggest adventures of the semester was Women’s Ambassador Trip to Prescott Arizona! We were given this amazing opportunity my Mrs. Johnson and the admissions department to travel to Prescott and familiarize ourselves with the second Embry-Riddle campus. Arizona is certainly a different type of atmosphere, the air is much thinner and the heat is much dryer. The campus sits up on a hill and looks out over the Prescott terrain which was absolutely gorgeous.

One of our days in Arizona we were able to travel to the Grand Canyon; something I have been waiting for years to cross off of by bucket list. Driving up and seeing the Canyon for the first time was absolutely breathtaking. It honestly looks like a mural, I almost could not even believe my eyes!!

My experiences in Arizona were amazing, and I am so grateful that as ambassadors we were given the opportunity to travel to new and exciting places. The ERAU Prescott Campus is beautiful and although it is very different than the campus here in Daytona, it still had a familiar feeling of home!

Things were not only busy between school and the Women’s Ambassador Program, but also extremely busy with Sigma Sigma Sigma! First we celebrated our Spring Formal! The theme was Casino Royale and I had a wonderful time dressing up, eating great food, and having an amazing time with all of my sisters and our wonderful dates!

One of my most favorite events of the spring semester is GREEK WEEK!!
This is a super jam packed week full of fun competitions between all the different Greek organizations. All of the Sororities will compete against each other as well as the different Fraternities. There are different competitions each day like, jousting, tug of war, boat races, cook offs and more!!

Sigma was in first place the entire week and we finished with the highest score among both sororities and fraternities! GREEK WEEK CHAMPIONS!! Delta Chi also did an amazing job and took home First Place for the gentleman!

We also just initiated five new sisters into our chapter this semester including my little Kalina! The new member process is always an amazing experience and it feels so good to finally call these women my sisters!

Lastly, this past weekend we celebrated our Founders Day. We all gathered  for brunch and celebrated 117 amazing years of sisterhood. I am so proud and happy to be a part of Sigma Sigma Sigma, these women have pushed me to become a stronger and better person and they constantly help me strive for excellence. I have been given so many more opportunities because of them and they have truly made my experience here at ERAU the best it could be.

I almost can’t believe that this semester is coming to a close, it has been such a whirlwind but I can honestly say it was my best semester so far at ERAU. I am excited to close the chapter on Spring 2015, and jump right into Summer! I will be staying down here this summer to work, take classes, and begin flying again. I am taking a really cool “Doppler on Wheels” course, which will involve storm chasing and collecting data from the crazy Florida Thunderstorms!! I am also moving in a new apartment with two of my fellow Women’s Ambassadors!!

I’ll be back in a couple weeks to let you know how everything is going and how the summer has kicked off! Until then always remember that Adventure Is Out There!
