To Delta Phi

Hi friends! So sorry for my lack of posts around here lately. I feel like most of my recent blog posts have started off with that lately but trust me there has been a lot going on in my life lately that blogging unfortunately had to take the back burner for a while.

One of which being that I just found out that my sorority will be closing in May at the end of the academic year.

If you been following along with Chic in Carolina over the past year and a half, you know how large of a role Theta has played in my college experience. I served as our Service Director this past year and recently was elected to serve as our Fundraising Director for this upcoming year. I know it sounds silly to get upset over something like my sorority when there are much more tragic events happening in the world but it has been such a large part of my college experience and I know it will be hard to let it go.

I'm not going to go into the details of why my chapter is closing or anything like that but I thought I would share what I wrote on my personal Instagram last week.


I’m honestly heartbroken and in shock in receiving the news that Theta will no longer be a chapter at Clemson. 


Coming from out of state, I could count on one hand the number of people I knew at Clemson. I always knew I wanted to go through recruitment and began that process the day after move-in. I think any sorority girl can tell you recruitment is hard but as the week went on, I found myself being more and more comfortable in Theta. Even though I wasn’t yet a sister, I felt like I belonged. 



As time went on, Theta became more and more of a home to me. I made friends in my member class, gained the most amazing big and little, and could not tell you a negative thing about my experience in Theta. 




One thing about me is that I put my full effort into everything I do (a strength and a weakness at times). From the day I joined theta, I knew I would put my full effort into it. I got as involved as I possibly could, I got involved in the Panhellenic community, and I even took on the incredible honor of taking on an officer position as a freshman. I have always been so proud to call myself a Clemson Theta.


Theta has changed me into a better version of myself and I will always be so thankful for the women of Delta Phi! DPLAM always


Thank you so much for all of your love and support during this time!
