This spring we had a wonderful group of sisters graduate. We are so proud of them and all they have accomplished within phi sig and their collegiate careers. We are happy to feature a few of them here!
Future Plans >>> I plan to move to Minneapolis and find a cute, little apartment that I can decorate the way I want it, while working for a PR/Strategic Communications company.
Phi Sig Impact >>> Phi Sig has impacted me through the relationships I’ve made, the professionalism I’ve obtained, and made every day of college more comfortable in knowing that I’m in a community surrounded by sisters who care about me.
Advice to Younger sister >>> 1. Be the diversity this sorority needs. You learn more about yourself in the face of diversity than familiarity and what’s comfortable.
2. Don’t be afraid to be the minority opinion. You may be tapping into something that could change our organization for the better.
3. Put yourself first. You can only show love to others once you’ve learned to love yourself.
Future Plans >>> I will be taking a Gap year before applying to Physician's Assistant (PA) school.
Phi Sig Impact >>> Phi Sig has truly turned my college experience around. I transferred in as a junior after a horrible experience at a different school. Phi Sig made me instantly involved in a community on campus, kept me active, and gave me friendships that will last a lifetime.
Advice to Younger Sister >>> Remember that Phi Sig is a place to have fun and be yourself. I would use your involvement and relationships in Phi Sig to get further involved around campus. Spend college working to better your future whether that is through phi sig, your major, your relationships and even your relationship with yourself. Now is a time to make mistakes, to learn from them, and to grow with them.
Future Plans >>> I plan to teach either in an elementary or special education classroom in the northern Twin Cities!
Phi Sig Impact >>> Phi Sig has impacted me in SO many ways. From professional dress attire, to how to hold yourself with class, Phi Sig has prepared me for the real world!
Advice to Younger Sister >>> Always be willing to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Run for positions, become an educated member, and leave a legacy that sisters will remember you by. Aiming high will never lead you down a wrong path... LITP
Future Plans >>> Currently planning to move back to the Twin Cities.
Phi Sig Impact >>> I have gained a lot of confidence and leadership skills through Phi Sig.
Advice to Younger Sisters >>> My advice to younger sisters would be to get outside of your comfort zone. It's so easy to get into a routine and stick to it but don't be afraid to try new things, apply for positions that are a bit scary, and try to hang out with new people any chance you get. You never know when you're going to find your new best friend or the job that inspires your future career!
Future Plans >>> I will be attending the 3-year Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the University of Minnesota after graduation to become a licensed Physical Therapist.
Phi Sig Impact >>> Phi Sig has impacted me immensely by becoming not only a major networking tool for my future career in PT, but also through making friendships that I know will last a lifetime. I never found "my people" in high school...I did here, at UMD, through Phi Sig!
Advice to Younger Sisters >>> My biggest advice for younger sisters is that "Done is Good". Sometimes, we put so much pressure on ourselves as young women to be "perfect" and successful at all times. Sometimes, you just can't do it all. Sometimes, you have to cut yourself some slack. Reminding yourself that "Done is Good" will seriously help you in the long run.
Future plans >>> I’m planning on moving to Nashville to work at a marketing agency!
Phi Sig Impact >>> Phi Sig has given me friends who have made Duluth feel like home for the past four years. The women apart of this organization have always pushed me to strive a little harder and challenge myself beyond what I thought I was capable of taking on.
Advice to Younger Sisters >>> In your college years, pursue what you’re genuinely passionate about. Not what you think you should be doing, but what your interests are deep down. Create the club you’ve been dreaming of, apply to the internship you don’t entirely feel qualified for, and just go for it! Don’t ever disregard older sisters even if you’ve never spoken with or met them. You never know what doors can open when learning more and talking with another Phi Sig.
Future Plans >>> My future plans include me working in Sales in Nashville!!
Phi Sig Impact >>> Phi Sig had impacted me in every aspect of my life! I have met my best friends and learned so much. Phi Sig has helped me become the confident woman I am today!
Advice to Younger Sisters >>> My advice for my younger sisters is to make sure you never take anything to seriously! You have your whole life to be serious so live it up while you can!
Iota Zeta is extremely proud of all of you and we know that you'll go on to do amazing things. Once a phi sigma sigma, always a phi sigma sigma!
