Isabel!!! HAPPY 22nd (or 2nd 21st) BIRTHDAY!! I can’t explain how easily you touch every single person you meet’s lives ❤ Your content, storytelling, delivery of jokes, and humor are some of the most admirable things about you. BUT you already know you’re funny so I’m gonna tell
you about some of the other things you are too:) Strong, kind, beautiful, loyal, caring, generous, smart, level headed, insightful, and most importantly the BEST best friend ever! You’re insanely fun to be around and when you aren’t there no tik toks will be remade, no pizza will be eaten out of a gutter, and no tears will be shed from laughing too hard. I love you so much and can’t wait to celebrate all week long babbyyy!!!!

My dearest Rachel,

The day is finally here—Happy happy 21!!!! I’m just as glad as you are that the day has come because now I can finally stop hearing about the surprise party you’ve been asking me to throw you for the past 6 months.... I have never met someone so similar yet so different from me at the same time but it has made for the most unexpected but best friendship of all time. You are my go to in every regard, thank you for being my rock when I need it but also my go to when it’s time to spiral. You make me laugh more than any person on this planet and I cannot imagine Alpha Xi, college, or life without you. Looking forward to managing your life and being held FaceTime hostage by you forever ❤ No one else I would rather do nothing with xoxo I know you hate the sappy stuff so my love letter to you is now complete. And yes, now that you’re 21 we can send heist every Monday night.

First of all -HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! We may have made a couple detours, but you finally made it!! 21 woo!!! I am so thankful to have such a beautiful, hilarious, understanding, and compassionate best friend like you. I think everyone in our chapter will agree that your passion for helping others and loyalty to your friends has made you not only an amazing xister, but also an amazing friend. Thank you for always being there for me no matter what, learning TikTok dances at 1am, the endless cycle of spirals and recaps (complete w/ Mac&cheese and Isabel’s storytelling), and obviously being the Freddie to my Brian. I will always be thankful that Alpha Xi brought us together 3 years ago because it brought me my best friend 💓 HBD JGirlMillz ily hehe

Want to give a warm birthday shoutout to one of my bestest friends. Yooj, you truly are one of the biggest parts of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority. Your presence and aura is so unique and beautiful and brings us all together. I have never met someone so charismatic, beautiful, dedicated and put together all in one. You are the light in my life and in so many others as well, and for that I am so so so grateful to have you as one of my best friends.
Thank you for the constant xister support, the Sunday TDR crying dates, and the countless Club Lib all nighters. Thank you for always having my back and sticking by my side through thick and thin. Thank you for showing me the light in dark times, and always motivating me to keep going no matter the circumstance. I am beyond grateful that Alpha Xi brought us closer together, and can’t wait for all the adventures we’ll take in the future. Don’t expect me to leave your side anytime soon xoxi ❤

Dearest Anna,
Happy 20th Birthday to one of the most genuine, caring, and fun women I have ever met. Your enthusiasm for everything you do, including raising a puppy and pursuing amazing internships, does not go unnoticed. You brighten the lives of everyone you meet and I truly hope you have another year full of rich memories and joy. Have the best birthday, I love you so much!

I know I can always look to you for a good laugh, advice, and constant support. I am so glad you’re staying in the district after graduation because I am not sure what I would do without you.

Love, Cat

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL LITTLE CAIT! While I’m so sad that I can’t celebrate your 21st with you because you’re in India, at least I can send you love from afar 😘 I am amazed of how much you’ve grown and accomplished over the past years. Your strength and compassion is an inspiration. You have defined my college experience and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you 💕 I can’t tell you enough how proud I am of you and how I know you’re going to continue changing the lives of everyone around you. But please come home ASAP! I’m over being thousands of miles apart. Kill it in your last week abroad and see you soon cherub!!!!

To my beautiful, talented, compassionate little,
HAPPY 21ST!!!!!!!
Em, ever since we met on the steps on SIS, you have been one of my absolute favorite people. Being able to watch you grow into the incredible woman you are today has filled me with such joy I can’t even explain it in words. You know exactly what to say when I’m down and you care so deeply about everyone and everything around you. You are everything I love about the world rolled into a person and I love you each and every day for it. I hope you have the most incredible day - there is absolutely no one more deserving of the best 21st. See you later sweet girl!!!!!! HBD!!!! -Ash

[04/08/19]   In light of recent events that have taken place on campus over the weekend, the women of the Iota Phi chapter of Alpha Xi Delta want to express their continuing commitment to standing in solidarity with, and support of, the Intercultural Greek Collective and students of color at American University. Racism and racial slurs in any and all context must be condemned and denounced. We believe it is important to build an inclusive community that respects one another, hold each other accountable, and stand with our values of respect. We will continue to stand, support and fight against these acts of racism in our community.

Happy 22nd Birthday Grace! Thank you for being so inspiring everyday. You work so hard and are so incredibly intelligent. I'm so proud to be your little (even though I'm 4 months older) 😉. i can't believe you graduate in one month!! You've worked so hard and I know you're going to be so successful! Thank you for always being there for me whenever I need you and for being so supportive and for being literally one of the kindest people I know!
Your little Ainsley

I’m so lucky to have known you since we were both baby freshmen at AU, and I have no words to describe how incredibly excited I was when you went Alpha Xi 💕 not only do I get to call you one of my best friends but I get to call you my sister!! Thank you for constantly listening to my probs, letting me eat your food and then drop it on the floor of your room, and always laughing at ourselves together. I’m gonna have to keep you close bc I’m never gonna find someone with as good of a sense of humor or who’s as reluctant to let everyone watch her play volleyball. Love you to ends of the earth and can’t wait to celebrate with you ❤️

Rachel!! It’s your birthday!! To celebrate here is a poem:

R - Really, really cool
A - Amazing friend and sister
C - Complex
H - (public) Health star

L - Leading others every day

I am so grateful that I have you in my life. Thank you for making me laugh, editing my papers, always listening, and being excited about everything. I have loved seeing you grow over the past year and am so proud of everything you have already accomplished.

Dear Siena,
Happy, happy, happy birthday to my incredible big! I CANNOT believe you’re 21. There are too many things to say for one post, but thank you so much for supporting me through everything! Whether it’s writing my texts for me, always knowing how to make me laugh, or offering to skip class when I’m sad, you’ve been the best big I could ask for, and I’m so grateful to have you in life. You never fail to remind me that everything will be okay, and you’ve been such an amazing role model. You give the best advice, and your kindness, strength, dedication, and support is so valued throughout our chapter and campus! You make everyday a whole lot brighter! I hope today is filled with coffee, dogs, Criminal Minds, and almond butter. Love you lots, Biggie!!! You deserve the world.

Happy Birthday Olivia!

Now that you’re a year older, hopefully u will start to trust me a little more than ur online doctors💜

Happy birthday to the infamous Louisa Frieling. I am truly blessed to have a big as amazing as you. I have never met someone who fits the “Work Hard, Play Hard” motto more than you do. You are dedicated to everything you do, and you never back down from a challenge. Please come back from Spain ASAP so we can continue to add to the countless number of wild nights we have had together(I promise when you return I won’t be lame). I hope your birthday brings you all the Spanish liquor your heart’s your birthday so you are invincible. Love and miss you more than anything💕

Happy birthday to my literal partner in crime and fellow pisces queen Elissa Baum.
I never knew what my life was missing without you in it and i’m so thankful to Alpha Xi for bringing us together. You’re my go to for all the good times and the bad, whether I need to vent or just one of our infamous #datenights. We probably spend way too much time together but i wouldn’t change it for a second. I can’t imagine my life without you and your sassy sense of humor and fierce loyalty. I hope your day is filled with videos of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper being in love and all the wine in the world. You’re one of a kind Elissa Baum and we’re all lucky to know you, I love you endlessly 💘

Can’t wait to celebrate with you!

The timeless ideals envisioned by Alpha Xi Delta’s Founders remain constant throughout the years, inspiring pride in each member to pursue individual excellence.
