Early Fraternity Life and Career

When Jackie started at Temple, she roomed with her best friend. She wanted to meet other students, but knew that a sorority was not her thing. She attended Phi Sigma Rush events her first semester of college, but was informed that even though she had AP transfer credits, she was ineligible because she did not have a college GPA. She tried again during the spring semester and became an initiate of the Alpha Gamma Class.

Collegiate Years at Alpha Lambda Chapter

During her first semester as an active brother, Jackie learned about the Regional Committee Program and enthusiastically accepted the position as Alpha Lambda’s Representative.
