Snow Day

Thanks everyone for sending us your snow shots. Had fun sharing some today. Be safe, be warm. More to likely come Thursday!

Sweet pandas

How ironic. The day we go to deliver panda cupcakes to the New Member of AOII at GMU… a baby panda is born at the National Zoo! What an awesome day it was. Our friends Sophie and Katherine at Georgetown Cupcake created the cutest cupcakes to celebrate our new girls. The panda is AOII’s mascot and made for a  really sweet treat. It was  great to see all the ladies on our old stomping grounds- the JC! I can’t even tell you how many hours I lost in that place.

My alum chum Elaina!

Congrats girls!

 

New pandas in town

If you read this site then you often see a lot of my college friends pop up in posts. I met many of them through AOII. My best memories from school were with these women. The great thing about the family– it keeps getting bigger and bigger. Fall recruitment at GMU just wrapped up and we’re welcoming 37 amazing young women to our chapter. Follow them on twitter @aoiigmu and join their facebook page.

Welcome Fall 2012

Sisters

The sisters leading the way now!

With awesome Alumni

Congrats Gamma Alpha on a strong rush. To all the ladies… remember NEVER FORGET!

Sisterly love

One of the best things about living close to where you went to school and college is that there’s always great ways to reconnect– in person. Seems like so many of us know people through social networking.. but rarely get to know them or see them anymore in real life.

My friend Kere is awesome when it comes to organizing brunches for our AOII sisters to catch up. We do them almost every season and there’s always different girls from different classes there. As we get ready for Fall we can’t help but reminisce about Fall Rush at Mason and how we sadly admit the thought of it still gives us a slight high.

The young women of Gamma Alpha are gearing up for their Fall Rush next week and some of us plan to return to help out. Good luck little pandas.. keep the legacy going and know that even after you graduate your girls will be here for you.

Washington Journalist & Media Conference Recap

More than 150 High School journalists were in DC for the week long Washington Journalism and Media Conference hosted by George Mason University. More here..

Washington Journalism & Media Conference 2011

Some of the best stuff I get to do is return to my alma mater the great George Mason University to work with students interested in media. I recently sat on a panel with fellow Patriots who have gone on to have successful careers in journalism- all kinds. As part of the Washington Journalism & Media Conference that draws hundreds of high schoolers from across the Country, we got the chance to share stories about breaking into the business.

Dishing out the dirt on what it took to get where they’re at were film critic Kevin ‘BDK’ McCarthy from 106.7 The Fan, BJ Koubaroulis the CEO of Synthesis Multimedia Production and Lynn Norusis, managing editor of Northern Virginia Magazine. Best of luck to all the great students we met… there’s many with a bright future ahead of them!

Baby on way

No… not #2! Don’t even go there people. My friend Vi is having a baby very soon and we all got together to celebrate little Gavin. It was the cutest shower thrown by Vi’s sister Tien and friend Peachy in Stone Ridge Virginia. I loved the ‘Candy Bar’ and catching up with so many sorority sisters from George Mason. It’s so funny to see how far so many of us have come from frat house to housewife and mom.
