How Does Rho Psi Eta Give Back?
Community service is one of our main three pillars, and active participation in it is a requirement for our sisters. We pride ourselves on the fact that the girls of Rho Psi Eta are involved with a myriad of volunteer organizations, from animal shelters to hospice homes.
As a group, we hold an annual philanthropy event which benefits Operation Smile, an organization that helps fund necessary surgeries for cleft lips and palates for children in need. We’ve also been working with a Safety Matters Certified Training group since 2012 to host annual CPR certification events on campus each year at which students can learn CPR for free. Additionally, we organize a health panel every fall which any UCSB pre-health student can attend to listen to and learn from a variety of accomplished professionals on their achievements and advice.
What Does It Mean To Be A Sister Of Rho Psi Eta?
Sisterhood means many things to us. What do we expect of you as a sister? Logistically, beyond volunteering individually and joining us for our campus-wide events, Rho Psi Eta sisters are required to participate in CPR + First Aid certifications and a certain number of study hours. You’ll be expected at weekly meetings as well as at fundraising, sisterhood, and social events. We also require a minimum cumulative/quarter GPA of 2.75.
What should you expect to gain from us as a sister? You’ll learn tons about the healthcare field. You’ll be exposed to detailed information regarding health professions through speakers at our weekly meetings. You’ll gain a group of enthusiastic, caring women who will support you in achieving your goals.
