Letter from the Recruitment Chair

Hey y’all!

I am so excited for recruitment this semester! My name is Caroline Escuin, and I’m a third year Biology Major with a French minor from Rockwall, Texas. I can’t describe how honored I am to be the Texas Sweethearts Spring 2022 Recruitment Chair. Texas Sweethearts is where I feel most at home at UT. It’s given me friendships, academic and emotional support, and a family away from home.

After touring UT my senior year, it immediately became my dream school. I loved Austin and the diverse atmosphere UT gave off. Austin is very different than my hometown, and I loved that. Not many people from my high school planned on going to UT, so I was excited to push myself to meet new people. Unfortunately, my first semester was a little rough. Joining such a big school with so many organizations made me feel overwhelmed, and I found myself falling behind and not joining any organizations. While I made some friends in my classes, I had nothing else to do with my free time. In high school, I was in tennis and a couple clubs, and I soon missed that sense of community and hated the abundance of free time. Once the semester was over, I began my research into all the spirit groups at UT. I was immediately drawn to Texas Sweethearts because of how diverse the organization seemed on their instagram.

Once Spring 20 recruitment came around, I was very nervous to go to all the events by myself. As soon as I went to the first smoker, my anxieties were eased. The actives were all so welcoming and so happy to be at every event. Each and every conversation I had, drew me further and further into the organization. I knew I had to be in this organization when I had the most meaningful conversation with a now Sweethearts alum. There were no awkward lulls in the conversation, and since coming to UT, I never related to someone so much. Recruitment is very overwhelming, but the people you meet and connections you make are completely worth it.

I don’t know what my college career would be like without this organization. The friendships I’ve made through this organization are never ending, growing each semester with our new classes. When I first came to UT, I could count all the people I knew on one hand, but now, there’s a whole organization I can always count on. Whether it's to pull all-nighters for exams, to eat ice cream and watch Taylor Swift music videos, or to go out and explore everything Austin has to offer, I always know I can find someone to join me. When I look back at all my memories in the past two and a half years, the majority are with Sweethearts. This organization has shaped me so much and allowed me to grow past what I thought I was capable of. The diverse majors, backgrounds, and personalities push me to be a better person everyday.

This is why I am so honored and happy to be the Texas Sweethearts Spring 2022 Recruitment Chair. I am excited to meet each and every single one of you throughout these next couple of weeks. I can’t wait for y’all to see why each and everyone one of our members love this organization. Spring ‘22 we’re waiting for ya!!

Lots of Love,

Caroline Escuin
