After having the last chapter meeting at Eta Psi/Tufts and celebrating their senior service, I'm left feeling a bit sentimental. It was difficult to say goodbye to the Eta Psi women without knowing when I would see any of them next. It has been an absolute pleasure to recruit and educate these women and watch them grow so much throughout the past several months. I am so proud of every single one of them and truly honored to call them my sisters.

Just a year ago, I was dreading saying goodbye to my own chapter. But as my fellow ELC, Courtney, recently blogged, "the beauty of Theta is that is never ends." Even though I was continuing my Theta experience as an alumna and an ELC, I was scared to leave Zeta Tau. I wasn't really saying goodbye though. I visited them a few times and returned to campus for their most recent initiation. I am hopeful to continue my relationship with the Eta Psi women and to follow their progress into their second year. Our Theta experience never really ends, we just keep adding on to it. I will be traveling to new cities to meet new chapters and work with new women. Think about how you hope to add on to your Theta experience and where it could take you after college.

Both my Theta experiences, as a collegian and as an ELC, are incredibly invaluable. In continuing on as an ELC this coming academic year I am excited to meet new Thetas and to encourage them to become their best selves. In looking back with my time with Eta Psi, I am sad that it has come to a close, but I am so happy to have spent this time with them. I can only hope that I've touched their hearts the way that they have touched mine. They have shaped me into the leading woman that I am today. So to the women of Eta Psi, know that this is not goodbye. I'll see you soon.
