Early Fraternity Life and Career

Alpha Initiate Class; Alison - bottom row, 1st from left

Alison transferred to ETSU after attending the College of Southern Maryland. After having a few years under her belt at ETSU she got an email to join Phi Sigma Pi. Intrigued by the idea of a co-ed Honors Fraternity, she decided to rush in 2008 where she learned that Phi Sigma Pi was much more than a bunch of co-eds having keg parties and panty raids. Once she got her bid she served as her initiate class secretary and was inducted into the Chapter with Alpha Initiate Class on December 1, 2008.
