Big: Casey Crownhart
Activities: MIT Mirchi, Class of 2018 Publicity Chair, Society of Women Engineers; I also enjoy playing tennis, going outdoors, and hanging out with friends!

I joined Theta because I saw a group of tight-knit individuals that I knew would push me to be my best. After joining, I noticed that my sisters were involved in nearly every activity on campus, yet they always managed to be great friends and confidantes when needed. I have realized that Theta is truly about being there for each other and actively making positive impacts.

Theta was the first home I ever found on campus and finding people I knew I could depend on even before classes started is one of the best decisions I ever made. Two years later, I still feel the same way; I know my sisters will love and support me no matter what, and they're always there for me. Thetas are always willing to go the extra mile to help out sisters and being a part of the organization has made me a better student, a better friend, and a better person.

Day 3 of recruitment is one of the most rewarding, inspirational days of being a sister. While some may think it mostly stems from the excitement of gaining new sisters, I think it comes from the appreciation of having so many wonderful people around you and supporting you. As soon as someone starts crying at a speech or a song, everyone brings the waterworks and it's just such an amazing feeling.

When I first came to MIT, I had no intention of joining a sorority. But after I spoke to some of the Theta sisters during recruitment, I knew that I wanted nothing more than to become part of the Theta family. To me, being a Theta represents being surrounded by people that you can look up to. It means living and learning next to people that you will not only be able to laugh with and have fun with, but that will also help you grow into the person you will one day become.
