Dear Potential New Members,

   My name is Sydney Swafford, and I am beyond excited to be able to be serving as Chi Omega's Recruitment Chair for 2021! The recruitment process at Southern Miss is truly a once in a lifetime experience that I can't wait for you to soon see what it's all about.

I decided to come to Southern Miss because it immediately felt like my home away from home. Having that feeling was wonderful, but something bigger was missing, and that missing piece was finding friendships and connections on campus. Going through recruitment allowed me the opportunity to find those connections, and I was immediately connected to Chi Omega. The women I talked with welcomed me with open arms, showed me an immense amount of love, and gave me more support and encouragement than I had ever dreamed possible. Being able to surround myself with a group of women who would always have my back and would challenge me throughout my college experience is the reason why I am who I am today. I can confidently say that I have grown to be a better version of myself, and I have this wonderful sisterhood to thank for that! I can only hope that this experience will have a similar impact on each of you as well. 

Throughout the week of recruitment, you will get a glimpse of what it truly means to be a Chi Omega - the community service, scholarship, campus involvement, leadership, and of course the authentic sisterhood. These women are driven, intentional, thoughtful, and kind. They are my biggest cheerleaders and have grown to be my very best friends! We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Southern Miss campus and the Panhellenic community in the fall!


Chi O Love and Mine,

Sydney Swafford
