Finding my Gamma Sig Home
Updated: Oct 1, 2018
Hey Gamma Girlies! My name is Jordan Heydt and I am currently a sophomore Marine Science and Biology double major. I joined Gamma Sig last semester (Spring 2018) as a part of the Beta Omicron class. I will be responsible for posting on the Beta Blog this semester so as you’re reading these amazing posts, if you want to write your own email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be posted at some point during the semester! You guys can write about anything you want, your favorite service project, how Gamma Sig has impacted your life, or something random that has inspired you recently. For the first post of the year, I wanted to share with the sisterhood my journey in our wonderful sorority so far and talk about the impact that Gamma Sig has had on my life.
The beginning of the second semester of my freshman year here at UD I was enjoying my classes and activities but I felt like something was missing. Throughout high school I was heavily involved in community service. I participated in many service projects through my high school and around my community. When I first came to college, I was overly busy getting settled into college life and adjusting to living in the dorms. I didn’t have a lot of time to get involved with activities and seek out community service. By second semester I realized how much I missed that part of my life and how fulfilling it had always been for me. I find immense joy in serving others. I firmly believe that it is our responsibility as human beings to help those in need and take care of our planet. I am beyond grateful that I have the time and resources in my life to help others.
Joining Gamma Sigma Sigma was the best decision I have made in my college career so far. I became introduced to Gamma Sig at the activities fair Spring semester. I met Dana and Katie, the most amazing MIT moms in the world! They were both so friendly and welcoming to me. I asked Dana want Gamma Sig was all about and she said “We’re a service sorority!” I excitedly listened to her tell me all about the various projects the sorority has participated in, along with the fundraisers and drives. Dana also told me about the wonderful sisterhood of Gamma Sig. She told me about the amazing sense of unity and unbreakable bond the sisters share, always supporting one another. I was ecstatic and knew that Gamma Sig was what I had been looking for all along. I immediately signed up and started the MIT process more than excited to be a part of such a loving group of girls.
I had an amazing MIT semester in Gamma Sig. I met some of my best friends and renewed my love for community service. My favorite service project I attended was faithful friends. I had so much fun helping take care of the sweet animals at the shelter. I really felt like I was making a difference by spending time with the animals that otherwise wouldn’t be receiving the love and affection they deserved. I went on super fun sister dates with awesome girls and got the sweetest most amazing big and twin in the whole entire world. I love having such a wonderful fam that welcomed me with open arms. I know they are always there for me and I can go to them for anything. I love that you can really make a connection with any member of Gamma Sig because we all share the same love and passion for service. “Unity in Service” really does unite us all as one sisterhood.
