Meet the 2022 Rho Gammas

Rho Gammas are Panhellenic women who temporarily "disaffiliate" from their chapter to provide a non-biased and non-discriminatory recruitment experience for every potential new member! Before the first day of recruitment, you will be assigned to a Rho Gamma along with a group of 10-20 other PNMs who will guide you through the recruitment process. Each Rho Gamma was selected through an intense application and selection process and is your go-to gal for any questions you may have along the way. Don't worry, we know recruitment sounds intense, but these girls were once in your shoes and can provide you any and all advice you might need!

Hi y’all , my names Emily and I’m a fourth year Ecology major with a minor in Statistics! I’m originally from Camino, a rural town in Northern California!

I spend my time in SB shopping and trying new restaurants downtown, kicking it at the beach, and roller skating around campus. I’m so excited to be a Rho Gamma and guide potential Greek Life members through recruitment! I absolutely love being in Greek life and have really found my home here at UCSB. I’ve made so many amazing friends through my chapter and am currently the VP of Greeks Go Green! I can’t wait to show all the potential new members everything that Greek Life has to offer at UCSB!

Hi everyone! My name is Emma Wright and I'm an incoming fourth year. I'm a psych and brain sciences major from the Bay Area.

Hi ! My name is Sam and I’m starting my third year as a biology major at UCSB. In my day to day life, I love to walk/read on the beach, go paddle boarding, play with the sea anemones and just lay on the warm sand. I also love intramurals as I’ve recently become a novice intramural volleyball champion (keyword novice) and am constantly looking for ways to keep active. My experience at UCSB had been amazing and I owe most of it to the friendships I’ve gained since joining the Panhellenic community. There’s no one else I would rather have dinner nights or sunset swims with than the girls I’ve connected with in my sorority. I am so excited to find the sorority that’s the perfect fit for each of you as joining this community has honestly been one of the best decisions I’ve made!

Hi there! I’m Sophia and I’m a fourth year theater major in the directing concentration. I’m from a small beach town in San Diego called Encinitas, so moving to UCSB for me felt so similar to home. However, I still wanted to join a community where I could find my lifelong friends and search for a very special place to call home. I can now happily say I have found both in my sorority. Outside of my major, I am a photographer; I enjoy fashion photography but more recently I have been taking grad photos for seniors! I will really do anything art-related with you if you ask me as I enjoy painting, sketching, singing, etc… I am so excited to meet everyone this fall and help you find your forever home!!! (-:

Hi everyone, I’m Emma!! I’m a fourth year double major in Film & Media Studies and Communication from Philly.

You can find me at pretty much any IV concert party, jamming to music, or singing and playing guitar, ukulele, or piano. Besides the 2 minute walk to the beach, sunset pilgrimages every night, and the mountains, my absolute favorite part of UCSB is the people. Greek life has introduced me to some of the coolest people I’ve ever met and I can’t wait for you to experience the same! Excited to meet you all, see you in the fall!

Hi everyone! My name is Lyndsey and I'm an upcoming 3rd year majoring in Statistics and Data Science here at UCSB. Originally from San Diego, California, I grew up with a love for the beach and warm weather which makes UCSB feel like I am right at home! On any day of the week you can find me running on the trails surrounding the campus lagoon or out on the bluffs past Sands beach. Since attending UCSB and joining the Panhellenic community, I have gained a huge interest in environmentalism and climate activism, and I even joined the Greeks Go Green club on campus. This summer I will be combining my interests in data science, the environment, and epidemiology by holding a full time undergraduate research position in the MacDonald Lab at UCSB, where I will be modeling the impacts of land use and climate change on vector-borne diseases and their transmission rates in high risk communities in the Peruvian Amazon. This experience is one of the amazing opportunities UCSB has offered me as an undergraduate student and I'm very excited to learn and expand my professional interests. When I'm not studying or going on runs I love to spend my time thrifting, watching the sunset with my best friends, and watching crime and nature documentaries. I can't wait to share more of what made me fall in love with the Isla Vista and Panhellenic communities with you all, and I'm so excited for you each to go through this amazing experience!
