From the New Member Educator:
My name is Gracen Blackwell, and I’m SO excited to be serving as the Spring 2019 New Member Educator for our Alpha Zeta New Member class!
I joined ADX during Fall of my freshman year. I had just moved here from Kansas City, Missouri, was new in my faith, and wanted (needed) to find a supportive community of Christians to continue my journey with. I am blessed to have found that community in my first week of attending UCLA. It’s cliche, but I say this truthfully- I have met my best friends here in ADX. I have been blessed with with mentors such as my big and my PNM mom. I live with three other ADX women, who are some of my best friends, and I have strong friendships across our organization and our Panhellenic community. This sorority has given me three littles, whom I am absolutely blessed just to know, let alone mentor. The women in this organization are strong and lovely, fierce and sweet, powerful and humble. I am thankful that I have gotten to know each of them well. This is a community where we all lean on, care for, and KNOW one another. On UCLA’s campus, that’s pretty special.
The women in our chapter are committed to growth: spiritually, scholastically, and socially. We are constantly striving to grow closer to God and one another, while performing to the best of our ability in our academic endeavors. ADX’s weekly devotionals and quarterly devotional retreat never fail to inspire me, and going to church with my sisters is the best way to start the week! Snack-filled study dates in the house are a common occurrence, and there’s always someone to help you choose classes, practice a presentation with, or peer edit your papers. We have a social every week, but many of us see each other more often for lunch, coffee, or hiking.
One of the greatest opportunities I’ve had in ADX is the opportunity to serve in leadership. I have been blessed to serve a few terms on our Executive Board, and each time I have walked away with a greater understanding of our organization and how to lead as Christ calls us to. All in all, I can say this: if you invest here, you WILL grow here.
It is my hope that you read this letter and find that ADX is something you’d like to try. Explore our website and social media, and discover who we are. We’ll be recruiting the first week of Spring Quarter, and we’d love to meet you! Come discover a place where you’ll be supported and loved as you chase your goals on and off of UCLA’s campus. Join an organization that will empower and challenge you to be the best you can be, and encourage you in Christ first and foremost.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out. I’d love to chat about an organization that has truly and honestly changed my life.
ADX love and mine,
New Member Educator
