Claire's Story

When I came to college in the fall of 2017, I had little intentions of joining a sorority. With encouragement from my roommate to participate in formal recruitment, I decided to at least give it a chance. To my surprise, after the first time sitting and talking to Alpha Xi Delta Sisters I knew that I had found my home away from home. I have never felt so welcome and loved until I joined Alpha Xi Delta. 

I know that I have a group of girls to support me through next four years. I love that Alpha Xi Delta has given me the opportunity to support Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks has always played a major role in my life. My younger brother was diagnosed with Autism at a young age, I have always been passionate about the wonderful things this organization accomplishes. Not only do I get to spend these four years at college with the most amazing, uplifting, and beautiful girls, but I get to support a philanthropy so close to my heart.
