Early Fraternity Life and Career
Leslie began at Saint Joseph's University (SJU) as a freshman in the Fall of 2013 after graduating from Mount de Sales Academy in Baltimore, Maryland. After entering as a Biology major, Leslie realized that Chemistry was her true calling and began to pursue studies in this field. Upon completing her first semester of freshman year, Leslie decided to follow in the footsteps of Caroline Menendez (also an alum of Mount de Sales and previously Leslie's "Big Sister" in high school) and rush Phi Sigma Pi. Unfortunately, on her first attempt, Leslie did not receive a bid to PSP, but she was not discouraged. She had made so many new friends while rushing the fraternity that she was determined to gain membership. With the encouragement of her Koinonia leader Aly Bartolomei and dear friend and Zeta Initiate, Mark De Leon, Leslie decided to rush again during the Fall 2014 semester. Having just been initiated, Leslie has little to show in way of achievements for Zeta Iota, but she is eager to make a name for herself of the next two and a half years at SJU. Beginning in the Fall of 2015, Leslie will be the Scholarship Chair for the Zeta Iota Chapter at Saint Joseph's University.
