A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Welcome to the Rho Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Phi at The Ohio State University. Please take the time to look through our website and browse through all of the wonderful things our sisters have accomplished this year and what makes Rho Chapter so special.
My name is Alexa Glickman and I am the current president of Rho Chapter. Being able to lead this beautiful and unique chapter filled with so many amazing women is truly the best honor someone can have. I am so lucky to have these wonderful and exciting opportunities. AEPhi has given me more than just life-long friendships, but has allowed me to grow greater connections with other chapters, my advisors, and AEPhi alumni. The greatest skills I have learned from this position are passion and leadership. During my term, I traveled to leadership conventions and did extensive research to help grow AEPhi. By going to multiple conventions, I learned the history of these amazing organizations, have learned how to become a better leader, and have grown as an individual. I have learned how amazing AEPhi is and how I want to ensure that everyone knows how lucky and special they are to be a part of such an amazing chapter. Alpha Epsilon Phi has truly impacted my life for the better and I will forever be grateful for the opportunities it has given me and the people I have met from being a part of this organization.
AEPhi is so lucky to be able to give back to two amazing philanthropies. The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation (EGPAF) and Sharsheret. This past year, we held our annual Red Week consisting of different fundraising events each day with all efforts going to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation (EGPAF). As well as Phi Trotters, our annual basketball tournament is held in the spring semester to raise money for Sharsheret, an organization which supports individuals and their families who have been impacted by cancer.
With COVID-19 we as a chapter need to adapt and make changes to our usual calendar. Our exec board has been working so hard to create a calendar filled with virtual activities including sisterhoods, regular weekly chapter meetings, Second Avenues, health and wellness speakers, and they plan to COB (Informal Recruitment) virtually. We will also try to host hybrid sisterhood events. We as an exec board are dedicated to ensuring the safe and health of every member!
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at and enjoy everything our chapter has to love and share!
