Letter from Cleveland State Colony

Hello everyone!

We are the Cleveland State University colony and are so excited to hopefully be installed within the next few months! We currently have ten women who are all engineering majors and range from freshman to graduate students.

With the help of our engineering college and other sponsors, we were able to send seven women to National Convention in Arizona this summer. For three of us, it was our first time flying, and for most of us it was our farthest trip “out west”. It was truly amazing to travel with each other and share first-time experiences like seeing cacti in nature!

All of the sessions we attended gave us all a new outlook of seemingly “common sense” topics and we are ready to use the information and advice learned for the upcoming semester to recruit our Beta class. Meeting other Phi Rho women and hearing about their experiences in life and the professional world was inspiring and empowering. It was great to see other colonies and share our stories and advice about being women of STEM, leadership, and most importantly: sisterhood!

We are all so thankful for this wonderful experience and are excited for our journey to become a chapter of Phi Sigma Rho!
