Why do you love being in a sorority?Not only has being a member of a sorority helped me build meaningful, lasting relationships, but being a part of the ISC as a whole has greatly enriched my UVA experience. I am constantly inspired by the 2,700 women in our community – I have found friends, role models and mentors who constantly encourage and challenge me. The genuine support base I have found in Greek life is unlike that in any other community I am a part of on Grounds.
What does President entail? As President, I have the privilege of leading the largest women’s organization on Grounds. This entails interfacing with UVa administrators, faculty, students, and alumni on issues facing the greater Greek community. Within the ISC, at weekly meetings, I coordinate the actions of 16 ISC chapters and presidents for collective scholarship, philanthropy, and sisterhood events.
Goals for the ISC: As ISC President, my overarching goal is to foster a greater sense of unity in the ISC community and beyond. By increasing the ISC’s transparency and implementing feedback systems open to all chapter members, I hope to continue to bridge the gap between ISC leadership and individual chapter members. I will also work to strengthen the ISC’s relationship with our philanthropy, the Women’s Center, to continue to empower sorority women and provide them with opportunities and resources that specifically address their needs.Third, and lastly, I will increase the ISC’s connection and collaboration with the other three Greek councils and the wider Charlottesville community. Our diversity is a major source of our strength, and I will continue working to create a more welcoming and inclusive environment.
Reasons to contact you: Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for the ISC. Additionally, please reach out to me if your CIO or organization would like to co-sponsor an event with the ISC.

Why do you love being in a sorority? I love the support system that my sisterhood gives me. Not only do we make amazing memories and have outrageous fun together, but more importantly, my sisters are always here for me when times are tough. When I walk through the doors of my chapter, I know that I can rely on these women to be supportive and encouraging. I’m so thankful that the Greek community led me to such a great group of women.
What does VP of Administration entail? As Vice President of Administration, I manage all activities for the ISC’s spending budget. I also preside over weekly meetings of ISC Representatives – who are the voting body for bylaw changes. Lastly, I am responsible for the creation of New Member education in the spring.
Goals for the ISC: This coming year I hope to make the ISC a more inclusive environment for all its members. As VPA, one of my roles is to plan and coordinate our new member education. I would like for new member education to be an opportunity for first year women to realize that they’re not only joining an individual chapter – they’re joining a network of 2,500 ISC women, the largest women’s organization on Grounds. Throughout the semester, I would like to continue promoting inclusivity among the ISC community by hosting such events as networking nights and study abroad mixers so women can connect with other women beyond their individual sororities.
Reasons to contact you: Please contact me with questions regarding New Member Education, the Inter Sorority Council budget (including funding and co sponsorship requests), and the ISC Representative body.

Why do you love being in a sorority? I love being in a sorority because of the vast amounts of opportunities that have become available to me. I have been able to take on leadership roles in both my chapter and in the Inter-Sorority Council, which has enabled me to grow in various areas and learn more about myself than I originally thought possible. Also, my chapter has given me a home away from home, so to speak. I am surrounded by women who empower and support me in everything I do, and I am confident that these women will continue to influence my life post graduation.
What does your job entail? As VPRCM, I am in charge of organizing and facilitating Formal Recruitment from the perspective of ISC Chapters. Also, I regularly meet with Chapter Recruitment Chairs in order to discuss recruitment policies and regulations, communicate changes to ISC Recruitment Bylaws, and serve as a liaison between the Recruitment Chairs and the ISC Recruitment Executive Board.
Goals for the ISC: I am fully aware of the competitive aspect of recruitment from the chapter side as well as the apparent division of the four Greek Councils. Before I am able to attempt to bridge the divide between the Councils, I need to build a strong relationship with each of the recruitment chairs and promote positive relationships between each of the chapters. In doing this, I hope that I will be able to host open dialogue about recruitment within each of the Councils in order to improve the Formal Recruitment process within the ISC.
Reasons to contact you: I am primarily only in contact with chapter members, specifically Recruitment Chairs and recruitment-related positions. However, please contact me if you have any questions about Formal Recruitment from the chapter perspective.

Zoe Pottow, Internal Interactions Chair
Hometown: Greenwich, CT
Why do you love being in a sorority? I love being in a sorority mainly because of the people. Many of my best friends are people that I didn’t meet until joining my sorority. It’s been a pivotal part of my growth as a college student and woman to be surrounded by a diverse group of individuals with similar core values. Being in a sorority has provided me a place of comfort at UVa, while simultaneously expanding my network to an amazing, capable group of women.
What does External Interactions Chair entail? My position entails organizing and executing events that unite sorority women and chapters on grounds. This includes ISC woman of the month.
Goals for the ISC: I want to see each sorority member make a friend outside of their chapter this semester! Greek-life is a great network and an amazing opportunity to learn about other academic, career or extracurricular interests. When a new member joins their sorority, they are not only joining their chapter, but also a much greater organization for support. I hope that each sorority member is able to exercise their full benefits of joining greek life at UVa, and explores the opportunity that the ISC provides.
Reasons to contact you: Please reach out to me if you ever want to chat about your experience in Greek Life or if you have any suggestions for inter-sorority events! I am open to new ideas, and would love to collaborate with any sorority members.
