Rachel shared her Phi Mu story and her experiences and explained, "I joined Phi Mu in the fall of 2015 when I transferred to UK. My favorite part about being in Phi Mu has been the philanthropy opportunities and events. Participating in Bonnamu, Cheesin’ For the Children, Greek Sing, Greek Siege, and many more have been such an awesome part of my time here. Having the honor of dancing for 24 hours beside sisters for 3 years in a row for DanceBlue has been truly life changing. As a junior, I had the opportunity to serve as the Ritual Chair for the chapter which really helped with gaining leadership experience. I loved living in the Mu Mansion, Big/Little festivities, and Formals! "

Thank you so much for your participation in so much Philanthropy, Rachel! You are the best! We will miss you!

Kendall was also asked about her many memories she has made from being in Rho Iota for four years. She shared, "I could go on and on about the memories I’ve made in Phi Mu: basketball games, football tailgates, date parties, trips to New Orleans, Nashville, and cities all over Europe. Even just hanging out doing absolutely nothing! The friendships I’ve made in Phi Mu have been the highlight of my years in college. I’ve made so many memories in Phi Mu and I’m so sad to graduate in May, but I’m looking forward to taking on the next chapter in my life with my sisters there supporting me and cheering me on!"
