Hello! My name is Madeline Raithel and I am the Archon of the Delta Gamma chapter of Phi Sigma Sigma. I joined Phi Sigma Sigma the first semester of my freshman year, Fall 2014. Coming from the small town of Paso Robles, California to San Francisco was not easy. I lived in Mary Ward dorms and while I did meet a few good people, I was missing the sense of community that I had growing up.
I went through recruitment just hoping to find friends and maybe get a few cute instagram posts along the way but what I found was so much greater. Since having the privilege of accepting a bid from Phi Sig I have watched myself, my pledge class, and the entire chapter grow into a group of smart, passionate, and strong women.
Our sisterhood means something different to everyone but to me it means growth. With every position I hold I grow as a person. Phi Sig has given me the confidence, responsibility, and maturity I hoped to find in college. I did gain a ton of life long friends along the way like I hoped(and some really good insta posts if I do say so myself).
