"What It's Like to be a Twin" by Makenzie Kulhanek

Hi! My name is Makenzie Kulhanek, or as I like to note, the first Kulhanek. At the end of recruitment last year, I knew I was going to end up with several hundred more sisters- people to cry to, laugh with, and to love without bounds. However, nothing made me happier than realizing one of my new sisters through Alpha Xi had already been my sister for 18 years. Payton and I obviously have a lifetime of memories together, but I will always hold in my heart the special feeling of going through this journey with her. I remember being so grateful that she also chose to be an Alpha Xi with me when we were both getting ready to go tailgating for the first football game with our new sisters. She hel

"Xi Love" by Hannah Przybilla

When I was asked to write about what being an Alpha Xi Delta means to me, of course certain words popped into my head, but one that stuck out the most is sisterhood. I know that the basic sorority answer is “sisterhood” for just about anything, and I even once thought that before I joined Greek life. However, once I joined Alpha Xi, I truly realized what sisterhood is. Sisterhood is deciding to have Christmas in October with your sisters because they know you’re stressed with school, complete with baking cookies in tacky sweaters and blaring Christmas tunes. (Merry Christmas Allyson, Chelsea, Morg and so many others!!) Sisterhood is when your big shows up at your front door with Kerby Lane

"Yoga and Sisters" by Madi Klein

My name is Madi Klein, and I’m a senior here at the Beta Alpha chapter of Alpha Xi Delta. I am so excited to be graduating this fall with a degree in RTF (Radio-Television-Film) and minors in business and 3D/Virtual Reality imaging. I have been doing yoga since my mom dragged me, rather unwillingly I might add, to my first class when I was a sophomore in high school. From there, it was all practice. Although I am not an official “200 hours certified” instructor, I have been teaching students and working at a local studio for over a year. I've also been teaching classes for sisters at Xi House. I eagerly await the weekly Wednesday class in the chapter room, and I think we all reap the benefit

Alpha Xis Overseas: Giovanna McMahon

Hi! My name is Giovanna McMahon! I am a Beta Alpha senior pursuing a dual degree in public relations and Spanish with a global business certificate, and I expect to graduate in May 2018. Last semester, I had the unique opportunity to complete my Spanish degree at The University of Granada in Granada, Spain. After spending five months in a place where I knew nothing about the country or culture and also didn't know anyone, I can honestly say it was the best experience of my life. Every day, I walked two miles to my university, engaging in conversation with people who were generally not familiar with English, an experience vastly different from studying in a larger city like Barcelona or Madri

"What I Learned from Being Miss Congeniality" by Kristina Tubera

My name is Kristina Tubera and I am currently a Senior MIS major in the McCombs School of Business at UT and part of Alpha Xi Delta’s Spring ’17 class! I started competing in pageants at the age of 16 because I love the glitz and the glamour of wearing a crown and sash, but also I love the rewarding learning experiences I have taken away from being a contestant for so many years. Despite what many people think, pageants go beyond that glitz and glamour. I love the scholarship, leadership, and self- empowerment that pageants provide. Pageants are about strong, independent women who are not afraid to go for their dreams and pursue higher education while living to the best of their ability ment
