Pi Chapter, Syracuse University

When I joined Phi Sigma Sigma my freshman year back in spring of 2015, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. 3 years later as a senior at Syracuse University, it’s hard to put into words how much this sisterhood has meant to me, and how much I am going to miss it after I graduate in 8 months.

The women of the Pi Chapter at Syracuse University are some of the most special people I have ever met. They’re people I have had the absolute pleasure of working, learning, traveling, and living with, and no matter where we are, I know someone always has my back. My member class and I have really grown up together, faced hardship and achieved success together, and made each other better people along the way. I could not ask for a more supportive, loving, and downright fun environment to foster my college career, and all the thanks in the world goes out to my chapter for being my rocks the last couple of years. Once a Phi Sigma Sigma, always a Phi Sigma Sigma.

When it comes to receiving this scholarship I could not be any more thankful. As an undergraduate senior working towards her Television, Radio, and Film B.S. and wanting to go into production management and line-producing for television after school, I’m looking forward to moving to one of the most expensive cities in the United States— Los Angeles. The hub of television! I have spent a little under a year working and living in LA during my undergrad, and as excited as I am to move back and start my career, LA is expensive. This scholarship really allows me the opportunity to save up in preparation for the future, so thank you for assisting me in that endeavor.

And all there’s left to really say is thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to the Foundation’s donors. These scholarships mean so much to me and the rest of the recipients of this year’s scholarships. So thank you for believing in our hopes, dreams, careers, journeys, and accomplishments. Thank you for believing in the value of higher-education, and thank you for believing in us.
