Theta has helped me grow as a person in many ways. From being silly with my sisters and laughing about random things, watching sisters put in many hours to help each other out, to being inspired by older Thetas serving as mentors to younger Thetas, I have developed a much deeper sense of what it means to belong to a community that is committed to being there for one another, to support each other, and to lift each other up. Joining Theta was one of the best decisions I made at MIT and it has shaped me and my university experience in more ways than I can say. Always grateful for the experiences I've had with Theta <3
