Iota Sigma Chapter, Farmingdale State College

I started my journey to UIFI eager and willing, yet a bit anxious about the unknown. I was able to participate in this leadership experience by receiving a scholarship from Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation.

UIFI has made me a better leader by showing me the ins and outs of how to work with a group, how to make educated decisions, and how to reflect upon myself. UIFI has taught me a lot that I want to take back to my chapter. The main thing, though, was knowing the “Why?” Knowing why we do what we do begins with knowing our values and rituals. An outsider should be able to look at any sister of Phi Sigma Sigma and through her actions and how she lives, should be able to identify what we stand for and our organization’s values.

I would absolutely recommend UIFI to anybody within the Greek Life community. It will change you as a person and give you the tools to change your campus for the better. Now that I have attended UIFI, the impact on me has been ever lasting. UIFI has taught me what Greek Life is truly about—leadership and commitment to my sorority. It’s about the entire fraternity movement. A movement that enriches my life every day and inspires me to be a better woman than the one I was yesterday.
