Omicron Alpha Chapter unveils its academic achievers at St. Mary's University

Omicron Alpha Chapter at St. Mary's University is proud of its Academic Achievers.

Serena Casanova, Academic Chairman, has inspired Omicron Alpha's members to put their time and energy into their studies, making the chapter strong. At the same time, Serena wanted to make the studying fun. She stated, “Academics are the most important thing about going to college, and I wanted to acknowledge those ladies who do work hard and excel in academics.”

Serena put together a theme for academics, which she believed would inspire the women to study and become excited about their accomplishments. "The feedback that our sisters gave back to us was amazing," reported Natalie Barajas, LAMP Editor. "They had a great time and they felt super special at our recognition event."

Julie Spurlock, President of Omicron Alpha at St. Mary’s University, is inspired to lead and succeed

Julie Spurlock, President of the Omicron Alpha Chapter at St. Mary’s University, has found strength and inspiration through her Delta Zeta experience.

"Becoming President of my Delta Zeta chapter was one of the most daunting journeys I ever embarked on, but it has taught me more than I would have ever thought possible," she said. "I was hoping to improve my management skills in working with the Executive Board, and I wanted to become more comfortable speaking in front of the entire chapter. I had no idea that I would become comfortable making dozens of decisions daily or that I would become so passionate about all the internal and external issues my chapter was facing. I definitely did not know the Executive Board and College Chapter Director of my chapter would become my greatest friends or that I would learn some of my hardest lessons and experience some of my greatest accomplishments through this journey.

"As a business major, I have taken a variety of management classes, but no class could prepare one to lead a sorority. Being President of the Omicron Alpha Chapter continues to show me that hard work, delegation, and an abundance of 'thank you’s' are necessary for success. However, at the end of the day, as long as I have my sisters, this amazing journey is worth it.

"Becoming President of the Omicron Alpha Chapter has pushed me to challenge myself in the Sorority, on my campus, and in my career. I am extremely proud of my chapter for all of our accomplishments showcased on campus. I was honored to be named Outstanding Greek Woman on my campus.

"At the university, I am also involved in a faith-based scholarship group, Marianist Leadership Program. I led all the sophomores on their retreat last semester. With the help and support of Delta Zeta sisters and especially our alumnae, I obtained internships at both SWBC (Southwest Business Corporation), and ATKG, a San Antonio based accounting firm, this year. I also received the Academic Excellence Scholarship for the outstanding junior accounting student at St. Mary’s University. None of this would be possible without the support of my amazing Executive Board and College Chapter Director, who have done everything necessary to make our chapter great and inspiring our members to excel within Delta Zeta, on campus and in our community."
