As I get older the mottos and old fashioned sayings and what it stood for begins to mean more and more to me than they did then though. In college I think I wasn't mature enough to really digest it all. Now, removed from the drama and stress of constantly being around 30-something girls (very few of of whom I had much in common with) and the added pressure of classwork, I think they are closer to my heart. One of which is the "mission" of the sorority, "To promote the highest type of womanhood." At 18, I was barely a woman. At 24, when I take these words to heart they are truly inspiring.
It would be a lie if I said at the time we weren't all more concerned with what everyone thought of us, parties, boys and having a good time. Of course we cared about community service and the organization, but not in the way I think the founders meant it to. Now when I look back on it, what the organization stands for means more to me because it has more relevance to my life. And those sisters that I do make an effort to keep in touch with (probably 2 or 3) mean so much more to me.
So, Happy Founders Day ΓΦΒ in IIKE
