Breanna Bailey (2019)
Hometown: Long Bottom, Ohio
Hobbies/interests: Muskingum University Women's Lacrosse, hunting, traveling, being my younger brother's biggest fan, watching my sister play basketball, and spending time with my family and friends
I pledged Kianu because as I grew up I always had a lot of friends to support me and I wanted to be able to have that here at Muskingum as well. I love being around people that accept me for who I am, and that is what all of the girls from Kianu did. I knew deep down from the first night of rush that I could not wait to call these girls my sisters and make countless memories with them all.
Sydney Bowers (2019)
Interests/Activities: Muskingum University Women's Golf, Homecoming Parade committee, running, hanging out with friends, and shopping.
Major: Spanish Education
I pledged Kianu because they were the first girls on campus to reach out to me and invite me to their parties. The girls were so nice, and they would be the only club I would pledge for. I'm so happy with my decision and couldn't imagine being anywhere else. I found my home in XAN :)
Michaela Curts (2019)
Hometown: Cambridge, Ohio
Interests/Activities: I play softball, and I bowl.
Majors: Psychology and Accounting; Minor: Criminal Justice
I pledged Kianu because when I first came on this campus I was involved in the softball program, but I got injured so I couldn't play. My roommate and I started going to more sorority events that were being held on campus and one of the actives that I had met really reached out to me and invited me to things and made me feel welcome. When I went to Kianu events I felt comfortable in the house and around the girls. They made me feel like I could belong there.
Megan Devol (2019)
Hometown: Caldwell, Ohio
Interests/Activities: basketball, 4-H
Major: Athletic Training
I joined Kianu because my sister was a Kianu. I grew up listening to her stories about how much fun she had. She is still best friends with some of the girls and made enough memories to last a life time. My two best friends also went through rush with me. All three of us fell in love with everything about Kianu. The rest of the girls made me feel like I was part of the family and I felt at home the first night of rush.

I pledged Kianu because I wanted to finally find a place to call home. I don't play sports, and I'm usually awkward and not very social. Kianu has brought me out of my shell. When I came to this school I knew I wanted to be in a sorority. When I went to Kianu during rush week I knew it was the one for me. I love all the girls there so much and can't wait to keep on making memories with everyone!
