Our beautiful sister, Skye, had some things she would like to share about Chi Omega!
Hello! I’m Skye-Lynn Ferch and a Senior in Chi Omega. Chi Omega has taught me that having sisters is great and to love every moment of my college years. My favorite memory from Chi Omega would be my pledge class sleep over back in Fall 2011. I still remember like it was yesterday because it was so fun and we had fun being our sassy, crazy, Chi-O lovin’ selves!
The concept of balance is what we all strive for in our daily lives. As Chi Omegas, we find that our Six Purposes serve as a guide in our pursuit of happiness and a balanced life.
Congrats to our sisters who made it possible, on this wonderful achievement!
It’s Wednesday, which means introducing another one of our beautiful sisters, Jessica Hardman!
Jessica Fay Hardman, Fall 13 FIT AND LEAN!! I am currently a Studio Art major with a focus in Sculpture in my final year at the University of Houston. I plan to teach at the high school level while building up my artistic portfolio in order to apply to grad school. I am a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars as well as the honor society Phi Kappa Phi. I love the Intramural Sports program UH has built, offering multitudes of sports from basketball to ping pong that builds student relations; the soccer program is my favorite and I’ve participated every year since arriving at UH. In addition I have participated in various organizations such as the Blaffer Student Association, the Resident Hall Association and the Art Student Society which I am currently the Vice President of.
Chi Omega continually shows me how the effort you put into a project, organization or friendship for that matter, is indicative of the rewarding results you will receive. I have found that through participating in all the events Chi Omega is involved in has strengthened not only my sisterhood within my Fraternity, but also opens doors to new adventures I would never have been a part of before; I have gotten to volunteer at the Center for Adults with Disabilities, raise money for various charities through our affiliations within the Greek Community, received job opportunities, played sports with my sister as our fellow Chi Omegas cheered from the sideline.
One of my most treasured opportunities was participating in the University of Houston’s proud tradition, Frontier Fiesta. I had attended the event in my previous years before joining Chi Omega and enjoyed myself, though it in no way compared to experiencing it with my sisters. We prepared for MONTHS to perfect our variety show with the boys of Pi Kappa Alpha. This was an event that puts the previously mentioned reap what you sow mantra into play. I chose to participate in every aspect of this event that I possibly could, from dancing to acting, backdrop design to front construction. It was INCREDIBLE to see so many people work together to create an amazing performance. By far the most memorable section was learning to dance with a a partner for the stunt portion of our show. We practiced for hours learning lifts and flips and created a beautiful dance with the help of our choreographer; in those hours I made countless memories with fellow greek guys I would never have imagined before Chi Omega and treasure their presence in my life. Most importantly I forged intimate relationships my sisters that I could never take for granted and love the memories that can never be forgotten.
