I Am a Sorority Sister


For many students, it is hard to venture away from the high school and childhood friends. However, it can also be an opportunity to meet new people and expand your horizons. That’s how Jenna saw it, and that’s why she joined Greek life.

“I am very proud of joining Theta Nu Sorority, and holding three different positions within the Greek organization. I’m also proud of all the relationships I established with my fellow classmates and professors during my time at Otterbein University,” Jenna said. “Through Otterbein Greek life, I was able to participate in numerous community service events, meet new people, interact with other student organizations, and gain leadership experience.”

Greek life certainly keeps students busy. On top of being an active sorority sister, Jenna worked hard to stay on the Dean’s List and volunteer at Battelle Memorial Institute, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Relay for Life, Westerville Area Resource Ministry (W.A.R.M.), and COSI. She also managed to work several part-time jobs at Mary Kelley’s restaurant, Mitchell Insurance Agency, Inc. and RE/MAX Impact, and even found time to study abroad her senior year.

“I studied abroad in England for two weeks during J-term my senior year for my Senior Year Experience (SYE) course. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I am so glad I had the opportunity to travel to England,” she said. 

“I loved learning and observing other customs and cultures while abroad, along with visiting numerous historical sites. I also enjoyed interacting with fellow Otterbein students that I had either never had the chance to meet or did not know very well. Overall, the trip made me a more well-rounded individual.”

Jenna’s advice for new Otterbein students is to “work hard but still enjoy your time at Otterbein. Four years goes by so fast! Also, become involved on campus and establish relationships with as many people as possible.”
