Welcome to Kappa Alpha Theta’s Epsilon Pi chapter at Bucknell University! My name is Lauren Romeo and I’m delighted to introduce myself as our president. “Leading Women” is a phrase that our chapter strives to embody as influential women on our college campus, beginning in 1984 with the foundation of our chapter at Bucknell. An important aspect of being a Theta at Bucknell is working towards making a difference both on and off campus.
We are a distinct group of women, who are involved in just about every aspect of campus. Our diversity of interests, activities, backgrounds, and talents is something that we as Thetas pride ourselves on. Whether it be choreographing dances for the fall and spring showcases, 3D printing prosthetics for children, spending a semester abroad, or volunteering at our local Evangelical Hospital, Thetas are involved. Although we have very busy schedules, we stay connected with our sisterhood by attending lunches, movie nights, potlucks, and dinners together on a regular basis. We strongly value the opportunity to give back to both the Bucknell and Lewisburg communities through participating in philanthropic events. Many of our sisters enjoy cooking at the Community Harvest, volunteering at Sunflower Daycare Center, helping out in Bucknell’s greenhouse, and hosting two philanthropy events which benefit CASA each year.
As with many other chapters, members of Epsilon Pi make the most of their time in Theta and look back at their experience with memories that will last a lifetime. I can only say the same for myself, and cannot wait to see what the year ahead brings. I am so excited to continue growing with our chapter and the remarkable women I am lucky to call my sisters.
