LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT

IMG_5844 2_edited.jpg

Welcome to Lambda Delta Phi’s website! I am Nicole Koziolek, a junior majoring in Agricultural Communication and Marketing with a Crops and Soils emphasis and Product Design minor.

I grew up with heavy roots in the agricultural industry. As an active member in 4-H and FFA, I found great involvement in raising corn, soybeans, and show pigs. Looking towards the future, I would love to work in the marketing and branding division of an agricultural company. Additionally, I strive to help my family continue and grow the corn and soybeans operation.

Growing up I was the little girl that always knew she was going to attend the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. My parents are both alumni of CFANS and St. Paul Campus always felt like home. Not only did I follow my parents’ footsteps to the U of M but I also followed my mother and aunt’s footsteps by joining Lambda Delta Phi. Even though I would like to give them the credit for me joining this sisterhood, I really need to give all the credit to the girls that were in the house and joining the house in fall of 2020. They opened the blue front door and their hearts to make me feel so welcome while starting this new chapter of my life. Thankfully, the support and connection that attracted me to Lambda Delta Phi has continued well into my active time as a sister. I appreciate the constant support from sisters whether that be in classes, on campus, or in my personal life.

 

As members of Lambda Delta Phi, we are focused on having a strong sisterhood, achievement in our academics, and growth in our personal development. We do this by holding each other accountable to all goals that are shared with one another. As Lambda Delta Phi President, I am focused on prompting collaboration, open communication, and unity within our sisterhood to strength the trust and bond we have with each other. Our motto, “living democracy through friendship”, is an excellent representation of how our sisterhood works. Everyone contributes pieces of knowledge, time, and help to the larger puzzle that is our sisterhood through their involvement in our sorority, on campus, and within classes.

Lambda Love,

Nicole Koziolek
