Letter From the President
welcome to the best four years of your life!
When I first came into UCR, I continued the same routine I had for years. I studied hard, joined a club, and thought that it would be easy to meet and connect with new people. As a commuter who never dormed, I quickly learned that making friends in college was a lot harder than in high school. In hopes of making these connections, I joined an intramural soccer team
here on campus. Soccer had always been my passion growing up, and I quickly found some of my closest friends on my team. They taught me how to navigate university life, and how to access the resources I needed to support my academics and personal passions. These men and women were role models to me, which encouraged me to branch out and look at other
organizations on campus. I thought back to my freshman orientation and how I had had great conversations with a lot of girls from Greek life. Joining a sorority had never even crossed my mind, as I always thought it was just for the “popular” girls. But I decided to give it a shot, and at the last minute I signed up for formal recruitment. That was easily the best decision I’ve made in college, and I can truly say that I’ve found my sisters for life.
My name is Ashley Fulsaas and I am the Panhellenic President of 2020. UCR Panhellenic consists of seven different chapters on campus that have their own unique values, traditions, and philanthropies. In order to provide the right support system and the relationship between chapters, I will be working with eight other well-rounded women on the Panhellenic Executive Board. Our goal is to spread an understanding of Panhellenic as a resource and as a sisterhood that provides lifetime networks and connections between women of all different backgrounds. The Panhellenic community is extremely diverse, and we strive to ensure that each girl that comes through our doors feels the love and support of every one of our chapters.
No matter where you are or what you’re going through, you can always find a sister there to motivate you and support your goals. While each girl does embark on her own journey, being a part of the Panhellenic community means representing all chapter letters in everything that we do. Not only will you find your sisters within your chapter, but you will find your family within Panhellenic.
