My name is Hannah Cobb, and I am so excited to be on council and to have a place on our fun, new blog. This past year and a half has been full of so much fun, growth, laughter, and memories, and I owe that mostly to Kappa Delta and the friends that I have made in this chapter.
I came to Louisiana Tech from the small town of Winnsboro, Louisiana. I did not know anyone going through recruitment; I just knew I wanted to find a place on campus to get involved and hopefully make an impact. As I got to know the girls within the Kappa Delta lodge, I immediately felt comfortable, and I felt like I had made friends in a simple ten-minute conversation. I will never forget the joy that I felt when I opened my bid card and saw those two words. Recruitment and bid day were a great experience for me, but they only gave me a small glimpse into what was to come.
In the few weeks after bid day, I made some of the best friends I could have ever asked for. From shopping for outfits, to eating way too much Mexican food, and just learning how to maneuver college life, myself and my gal pals became inseparable within days. I learned what it was like to have a sister and a true friend all in one. This is one of the things I am most thankful for within Kappa Delta, because I know these friendships will last a lifetime.
Not only have I found my best friends in this chapter, but I have found myself. Over the past year and a half, my sisters have pushed me to strive for so much more than I could ever accomplish alone.
I was given the job of Junior Panhellenic last year which allowed me to work with girls from other houses and learn about how the Panhellenic council operates. This was such a fun experience, and I gained such an appreciation for all of my Greek sisters. I have also had the opportunity of serving on Student Government as a senator, which has only broadened my love and respect for our campus as a whole and all Louisiana Tech has to offer. I have now transitioned into the position of Vice President-Finance, #makingmoneymoves and I could not be more thrilled that I have been entrusted with this responsibility. The support of my sisters, on top of my faith in Jesus, has allowed me to take on all of these roles with confidence. I have grown more and learned more in college already than I ever expected, and it’s just the beginning.
I can’t wait to look back in a year and see all that my time on council will have taught me, and I hope that I will be able to look back and see that I have made at least a small impact on the Alpha Chi chapter.
