Rebecca Epstein- RAE

Rebecca has been performing in the Tallahassee area for about 3 years in various venues throughout the town. About a week ago, she had the amazing opportunity to perform on the morning news at WXTL ABC 27. “Through out the years, the support from the community of FSU and the Capitol has been overwhelmingly great. Having never done anything like that before was absolutely incredible.”

“Since graduation is right around the corner, I plan to move to Manhattan and work for a creative agency to write and record music. I do also plan on working for a music magazine to work on my prose and network with other artists. Although leaving is a bittersweet feeling, I know that this is just the tip of the ice burg of the opportunities to come during my music career.”

Check out the link to the music video for her single “Forever December” below!

Kathryn Hatfield- Hometown News Writer!

Kathryn Hatfield just recently had her first article published in the Hometown News Newspaper! She started there as an intern, but the editor liked her writing so much that she was hired as a freelance writer and is now responsible for producing 1 to 2 articles a week.

Hometown News is a newspaper that covers the eastern coast of Florida from Volusia County to Martin County. It is split up into 15 different newspapers for each local area in the regions. Kathryn writes mostly for the Brevard County publication!

Check out her first published article below! Keep up the good work, Kat!

Senior Spotlight- Alex Schaler

Alex in Fall 2015 as President of our chapter

“When I entered Florida State as a freshman, I had no way of knowing the successes this university would bring to me as a student leader. Being elected to Alpha Chi Omega’s Executive Board as a sophomore, I was very prepared to accept my ultimate leadership role within the chapter when I was elected the Chapter President of Beta Eta in the fall of 2014. Becoming the Chapter President had always been a dream of mine, and I could not be more thankful to have accomplished this goal of leading such real, strong women. My leadership positions within Alpha Chi Omega provided me with the opportunity to be even more involved on campus. I have served on both Florida State University’s 67th and 68th Student Senate as the Seat 2 College of Engineering representative, and continued to represent my college as a member of both the Budget and Internal Affairs committees within the legislative branch of SGA. Becoming involved in Student Government was one of the most rewarding aspects of my college career, for it equipped me with a voice to make a change both within my respective college and the university. Within my discipline, I currently serve as the Florida Water and Environment Association’s Student Chapter Secretary. Additionally, I am a member of Order of Omega and the Honors Student Association. My leadership positions were very close to my heart, but would always come second to my desire to achieve academic success. Despite being busier than the average college student and accepting a rigorous major of Civil Engineering, I maintained a 3.7 GPA as well as a continued spot on the Dean’s List, and most recently, a spot on the President’s List.
Although the most rewarding four years of my life thus far are coming to a close, I am beyond thrilled for the opportunities to come in the future. In May I will be graduating with a B.S. Civil Engineering degree and will be taking my talents to Tampa, FL. I have accepted a job offer with my dream Civil Engineering Company, Kimley-Horn, which was recently ranked #25 on FORTUNE magazine’s top 100 companies to work for. The company’s Tampa location specializes in land development, an area that aligns with my passion in the civil engineering field.

Alpha Chi has given me the most memorable moments throughout my college career, and I look forward to a lifetime of involvement with the organization to help other women seek the heights as I have done at Florida State!”
