Introducing Morgan Paige Bentley from Indiana University Southeast’s Alpha Phi! We found out that Morgan had a slightly different story than most sorority sisters out there, so we wanted her to be a “Sister Of The Day” and have a chance to tell her story!
Hi! My name is Morgan. I am an Alpha Phi at Indiana University Southeast. I chose to go to IUS because it was close to home, a great price, and had a great Greek Life Program! I knew from the moment I enrolled at IUS that I wanted Alpha Phi. I had heard great things about their philanthropy and sisterhood and that was exactly what I wanted from a sorority. I had a great time going through rush and meeting the women of Alpha Phi. The more sisters I talked to, the more I was reassured that this was the sisterhood for me. I chose to go Alpha Phi because I felt like I belonged there and I was right. I love Alpha Phi and all of my sisters and wouldn’t change a thing for the world! I also have a special situation, I am 19 years old and engaged! Yay! I have been with my fiancé since I was 14 years old (and no, we have never had a break up). He popped the question on Valentine’s Day 2014 and, obviously, I said “Yes!” I chose to get engaged young because I know where I am in life and I know that this is where my life was heading anyway, plus I couldn’t wait any longer if I tried! We are getting married on September 19th, 2015 and couldn’t be happier. I get a lot of grief for being engaged at 19, but those people can mind their own. It can be hard balancing school, work, Alpha Phi, and wedding planning…but with the help of my sisters, family, and fiancé, things are working out alright. If you are considering getting engaged young or while in college, I say “Go for it!” if you love each other enough to get married, you can survive a few hard years in college! Follow your heart and don’t let anyone get in your way.
Love and AOE <3
