75 years ago today, Alpha Sigma Tau petitioned the National Panhellenic Conference for membership.
Under the leadership of Third National President Carrie Washburne Staehle, this petition marks the beginning of Alpha Sigma Tau’s commitment to the Panhellenic community. However, it wasn’t until 1947 that the Sorority, along with six other AES (Association of Education Sororities) organizations, became associate members of the NPC. Full membership was granted in December 1951.

Convention: A Defining Moment

by Brittani Fry, Beta Upsilon Collegian

I stepped off the plane onto the Southern soil of Atlanta with zero expectations for my stay, but I left with a creative mind and an over-flowing heart.  During the Panhellenic Dinner, we talked about defining moments. I think the typical sorority woman’s responses would be: bid day, big reveal, initiation, and her first convention.  While all those things are defining moments in my life and my sorority experience, I wondered what details about these moments would help make them defining moments?

The 40th National Convention was my first convention, so I definitely would call it a defining moment.  The catch is, it isn’t just a defining moment because of the business meetings that were conducted, the cute letters I bought at the Emerald Boutique or the educational programs I attended.  These events impacted me for sure, but what made Convention a defining moment for me were the smaller moments sparked by these larger events.

It was hearing someone on Headquarters Staff saying, “I’ve heard great things about you.”

It was my conversation with a sister of the Phi Chapter about the results of our True Colors Test.

It was late night talks and advice from Beta Upsilon and Delta Phi’s advisors.

It was Education Specialist Sarah Wild taking time out of her day to hear me ask 1000 questions and listen to how stressed I am about this upcoming year.

It was discussing with a sister about my chapter’s weaknesses, getting her advice and doing the same for her.

It was listening and watching the Rachel Hale concert while hundreds of sisters gave her their full support.

It was Delta Phi, another chapter, welcoming me, truly, as their sister.

We all left Convention with the information and motivation we need to execute and help our chapters succeed, but I also left with so much more.  I left with encouragementmentorshipsisterhood and connections.  I left with my heart feeling full and my mind racing with ideas.  I left with support from women, my sisters, across the country ready to jump the moment I need them most.  And I left with one last thing…a defining moment in my life.

Happy Independence Day!
