Meet the Fall 2015 Collegiate Perspective Bloggers!

Darshana Panchal (Theta Delta-Creighton): Darshana is a senior at Creighton studying finance and marketing. She has been very involved within her Alpha Phi chapter as assistant Red Dress Gala chair, director of advertising, and director of internal events. Additionally, her leadership within Alpha Phi has contributed to her success within other campus organizations such as vice president of recruitment and executive vice president of Alpha Kappa Psi – a  professional business fraternity – and president of the Creighton American Marketing Association. Her favorite thing to do is to find random fun (and free!,#college) things to do around the city of Omaha. She also loves spending time with her brother and cousins when on vacation.

Rylee Portman (Delta Gamma–Northern Colorado): Rylee is a sophomore at Northern Colorado majoring in nursing. Within Alpha Phi, she serves on the executive council as the director of finance and played on the chapter’s intramural volleyball team. Rylee has enjoyed every second of her time in Alpha Phi and notes that living in the house with 24 roommates has been the opportunity of a lifetime. Following graduation, Rylee hopes to pursue a career as a labor and delivery nurse. In her free time she loves to sing off-key, eat peanut butter and laugh until her stomach hurts. 

Katelyn Pulio (Omicron-Missouri): Katie is a sophomore at Missouri studying strategic communications with an emphasis in public relations and a minor in psychology. She is involved with her chapter as its director of service and the assistant director of academics, and likes to think that she is in a “committed relationship” with Alpha Phi. Katie is also involved with Relay for Life, Psi Chi and the Emerging Leaders Program. She has an obsession with coffee, Twitter, crafting and watching “The Bachelor.” 

Grace Quinn (Gamma-DePauw): Grace is a senior English writing major at DePauw. Aside from her amazing family, Grace is most thankful for her beautiful Alpha Phi sisters. Her favorite things include late-night chats in the "informal", dance parties during lunch and their house mom's famous Grasshopper Pie. She feels so blessed to live in a house filled with so much love and laughter, and where everyone challenges her to be her best self every day. She has served as the director of chapter events, vice president of marketing, and is currently the Gamma chapter's president. Each position has taught her so much about dedication, leadership and sisterhood. She looks forward to what senior year has in store and is excited to be living in the house for one last year! 

Caroline Whitlock (Eta Lambda-George Mason): Caroline is a senior at George Mason majoring in government and international politics with a minor in legal studies. Caroline currently serves as the director of administration for the Eta Lambda chapter, as well as the vice president of programming for the Panhellenic Council. She is also involved in GMU student government, where she serves as the executive undersecretary for external partnerships and liaison to Virginia 21. Caroline recently helped form the Mason Service Council, and still actively participates in community service projects in the Fairfax community, like the Mason Nation 9/11 Day of Service. She is currently applying to be an Alpha Phi ELC, and after that, hopes to attend law school and use her passion for community service and justice to foster a legal career in Washington, D.C., with a concentration in criminal law and prosecution.
