A NOTE FROM THE RECRUITMENT CHAIR

IMG_1546.jpg

"When I began applying for Epsilon Eta, I didn't know what to expect. I was anxious that the rush process would be something that I was not prepared for professionally. But I quickly realized I had nothing to fear. 

Recruitment events were focused on having productive conversations about my passions and ambitions, rather than just shaking hands and making sure the E-Board members knew my name. I felt free to be myself and - with each passing round - became more and more confident that Epsilon Eta was the place for me. 

The entire Recruitment experience felt genuine, and - now, as a member, I know - that's because of the brothers. Over this past semester I've met incredible people I otherwise would not have met if it weren't for EH. We've grown together professionally and personally, and I wouldn't trade that experience for anything. Applying for Epsilon Eta was one of the best decisions I have made at Cornell, and I hope you find it is, too. 

I would like to extend the opportunity to become part of our chapter to all who are passionate about sustainability. Epsilon Eta offers professional skill development, networking opportunities, community service and team building, as well as a social sphere that emphasizes sustainability. Our members come from over five colleges and study in over a dozen different majors. But, as diverse as we are, we know there is so much more to learn. Join us for an information session and come share what sustainability means to you. 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. I look forward to meeting you!"
