East Regional Spotlight!
With the excitement of the holidays behind us, the chapters of the eastern region are settled back into their campus communities and ready to take action! All five chapters are actively engaged in recruitment and rearing up for a fabulous spring semester filled with tons of service activities, socials, multicultural programming, and much more.
Over the winter break, several sisters spent time traveling and exploring different places around the world! I admire their pursuits of both knowledge and culture and hope they all had a wonderful experience abroad. Lindsay, a Rho Chapter sister, rocked her DXP line jacket in Cambridge while studying abroad in London!
The Chi Associate Chapter wasted no time getting involved at the start of this semester. In the midst of preparing for spring recruitment, the women partnered with the Office of Student Diversity on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day of service, to sort socks for the homeless. Check of the ladies of Chi at their student involvement fair promoting our pillars and beliefs!
Our sisters at the Upsilon Chapter, who more than doubled their active membership in the Fall, are prepared for another wonderful semester. They kicked off the semester with a country themed social with one of the local fraternities. Sisters enjoyed catching up, meeting new people, and getting all dressed up!
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all my sisters, across the country and around the world, a happy and healthy 2015! Each day I feel so fortunate to be a part of this truly special organization. I would like to encourage sisters, active and alum, to continue to embrace our pillars and take advantage of all the remarkable opportunities that being a member of Delta Xi Phi affords us. Look for new ways to connect with each other, educate yourself and others on multicultural topics and social justice issues, and give back to your communities. It is what you make it! Your experience as a lifelong member of this sisterhood is going to be defined by the effort and energy that you give to it. So get involved and make this year Delta Xi Phi’s best year yet!
I look forward to seeing many of you at the East Retreat and National Convention 2015 in Atlanta this summer!
With sisterly love,
Nikita “ADANNA” DeBarros
