A letter from our President, Kenna Peters

Dear parents,

 

I would love to invite you to learn about our sorority chapter, Alpha Omega, at Wilfrid Laurier University!

 

My name is Kenna Peters, President of Alpha Omega Sorority, it excites me to provide a better understanding of the ambitions this sorority chapter holds and knowledge of sorority life in general.

 

Female students from all over the world have found a home in sorority chapters for centuries. Organizations that are built through friendship, leadership, serving others, and networking. Providing encouragement and comfort in the women around us. Alpha Omega Sorority is a local organization serving the Kitchener-Waterloo region at Wilfrid Laurier University. Established in 1993, Alpha Omega was founded upon not only accepting each other for our differences but utilizing the diversity, to make us strong in all areas of life. “Harmony Through Individuality”, is a motto engraved into the hearts of our sisters, a phrase we live by. This sorority not only provides support to our sisters, but gives back to the greater community through our philanthropic endeavours as well. Throughout the year, your daughter would take part in bake sales, semi-formal events, raffles, etc. to raise awareness and funds for the charities we support. Alpha Omega sisters are also scholars, who know the importance of and value education. We help each other stay on track with our school responsibilities by hosting regular study sessions and exam preparation dates, followed by de-stressing activities. Our sisters are proven to be well-rounded individuals who immerse themselves into an organization that provides opportunities that develop and build skills of leadership, responsibility, communication, and friendship.

 

I came to Laurier with an open mind, eager to get involved in the community I was going to call home for the next 4 years. I rushed Alpha Omega my first semester of my first year and have never looked back. Recruitment was a highlight of my experiences so far. It was when I met my first friends, learned about the past and future endeavours of the sorority and truly inspired me to want to make a difference in the community. I am progressing into my third year now, honoured to lead this organization of incredible women committed to improving the quality of life with inclusion, unity and a whole lot of fun. This sorority has given me some of my best friends, numerous leadership opportunities, and helped me realize my highest potential as an individual and team player. I have found my home in Alpha Omega Sorority.

 

Above all, Alpha Omega Sorority is an organization comprised of empowered women, that inspire other women around them to set goals and encourage them to achieve them. Whether those goals be scholarly, socially, in athletics, in the arts, or even personal. It is truly success rooted in friendship, love and sisterhood!

 

It is my hope that my message has given you an insight into the amazing work we do here as a team and I hope that your daughter finds a home in Alpha Omega Sorority too.

 

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Thank you,

 

Kenna Peters
