Assistant Director of Student Life
Letter from the President
Dear Potential New Members,
My name is Kinsley Alley, and I serve as Panhellenic president at BakerUniversity (it still surprises me every time I write that out)! I definitely did not just end up in this position as president—it took a lot of confidence-building and effort on my part. In high school, I never thought of myself as a leader. I was shy and quiet, I was go-with-the-flow and let others take charge for me.
When I got to college, this was still my main way of moving through life. But in part, thanks to my brother who was in a fraternity at Baker, he pushed me to go through formal recruitment in the fall of 2019, my freshman year. He told me, even if you don’t join a house, you will start making connections and meeting new people through the process. My biggest challenge was making new friends, butI can confidently say that I met some amazing women through that first week of busy recruitment schedules.
Once I found my own home and began participating in the chapter, I saw my confidence soar. I give all the credit of my confidence boost to Panhellenic. This group of women has supported me and loved me for me, being given the chance to share with others my true self. Eventually, that led me to joining the Panhellenic Council my junior year as president. On this board, I have been given the chance to work with women outside of my own house. I have the opportunity to initiate change and make a difference for the Fraternity & Sorority Life on campus. I saw where our community lacked, and taking on this position ensures my voice is heard and I can be a voice for all the Panhellenic women. It is not easy to step out of your comfort zone and take on such a position, but I have seen myself grow and the community grow around me in a positive way. I am glad I can be a big part of that change.
