A passionate philanthropist, Allie Gazmarian continues to influence the lives of others with the support and generosity of her sorority.
Who I Am
One of the primary reasons that I chose to go through recruitment was due to the community service opportunities that it provides. Throughout high school, I served as Vice President of our girl's service club and president of our Habitat for Humanity coalition. I also went on service trips to Kenya, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Mississippi throughout my high school years. Upon entering a large college, I did not know where to look for similar opportunities and thought that a sorority may be beneficial. Greek life provides a unique opportunity to be involved in your philanthropy and also the philanthropic events of other sororities and fraternities. As a result, I have become more involved on campus and have been able to give back to numerous causes and organizations that I would not have otherwise known of.
Words to Live By
"In a gentle way you can shake the world." – Gandhi
I think this quote is an appropriate representation of what can be achieved through the efforts of young people. Anyone has the potential to make a difference, and I hope that while in college and after my undergraduate career, I will be able to make a difference in the lives of others.
I am currently pursuing a double major in English and philosophy so that upon graduating I can enter law school and work towards a career in public interest law. In particular, I want to assist in creating a more accessible and affordable education system for children in third world countries.
Why I Joined
I wanted to become more involved within my college community and leave a legacy upon my campus. I desired to make lasting friendships and memories with girls that represented similar values and interests.
My sisters represent women from all different backgrounds that have come together to develop close bonds and grow individually, as well as collectively as an organization. I am truly proud to call each of them my sister and to support them in their pursuits, whatever they may be.
What is Sorority Life Really Like?
Everything I imagined, and so much more! It is an amazing opportunity to grow as an individual through leadership development opportunities and philanthropic events. In addition, I have found a place in the midst of a large university that feels like home to me.
Keep an open mind! Although you go into recruitment with preconceived notions about what is the "best" sorority, push those ideas aside and look at what every sorority has to offer. Do not listen to the opinions of others. Focus on where you can picture yourself when you’re not at your finest hour. Where will you go when your hair is a mess and you’re running on very little sleep from pulling an all-nighter? Where will you run to when your boyfriend breaks up with you and you are an emotional wreck? What letters will you be proud to wear on your chest? These are the questions that prompted me to join a sorority, and it is a decision that I am very proud of.
I serve as Director of Philanthropy within The Residents Hall Federation. I am also a member of the coed pre-law fraternity and was recently selected to be a tour guide for the upcoming school year!
