Without a doubt in my mind, I can easily say LKS has been the best decision of my life. Not only have I grown so much as a person, but I have been there to witness the growth of my sisters and help each other through life, and I could not be prouder to be an active part of such an amazing and accomplished organization. Without the constant support of my sisters, I know I would not be the person I am today and this organization truly changed me for the better. I joined LKS at the very beginning of my college career where I can honestly say I did not know who I was or what I was trying to find. Somehow, things fell into place once I joined LKS and I discovered where I belonged- right here with my sisters. I can not express enough or formulate into words how much this sisterhood means to me. I feel like I was able to realize this the most when I began to struggle personally and went through rough patches in my own life. Somehow, LKS has ALWAYS been there and was a part of me that I never questioned and always made sense. I am appreciative of each sister because in one way or another, older or younger, my life has been impacted by each girl and I have never once been denied support, love, or care from anyone. Whether it’s a rough week at school or I am overwhelmed in my personal life, I know my sisters are all behind me and available whenever we need each other. I have had sisters physically wipe my tears and be so vulnerable about their own lives in order to help me through mine and I can never thank them enough for that. I have never met such a beautiful and determined set of girls that are all unique and inspiring and for that I will be forever grateful. I’ve met the most amazing people and my life-long best friends through Lambda Kappa Sigma and I will always owe those relationships to this organization. I can confidently say that if it were not for LKS, I don’t think I would have made it this far in pharmacy school. Since joining the fall of my freshman year, LKS is all I know and I could absolutely not picture my life without Lambda Kappa Sigma. These are the girls that are there and believe in me when I can’t find the courage to believe in myself. These are the girls that constantly push me and see the best in me when I fail to give myself enough credit. Pharmacy school is not easy and life is something that is always happening and is not always smooth sailing- however, I know that every step of the way, my sisters are always there for me and I will always return that favor. Each sister has something different to offer and I respect each girl for this. LKS is a place where we can all gain something from one another and to me that is something I value. Something I always say is the best moments I have had in LKS is time spent with my sisters. Whether it be sitting on a bench, sitting in class, at an event, or having a heart-to-heart, I never leave a conversation disappointed and these girls ALWAYS uplift my spirits. I wish I could express just how much these bonds mean to me and I will always hold LKS so close to my heart in the past, present, and in the years to come. Never give up on yourself or your sisters because LKS is a place of comfort and I hope that each sister is able to discover what I have found in LKS because it is something so incredibly special. Never forget the reason why you joined LKS and always strive to continuously make this organization something amazing and something you’re proud to be a part of. LL, Samantha Pistek

There is no possible way for me to look back at my time in pharmacy school without thinking of LKS. I joined Lambda Kappa Sigma as a third year Pharmacy student, and it was one of the most important decisions I made in my life. Not only has the organization helped me foster a multitude of new friendships and relationships, but I’ve had the opportunity to push and challenge myself to become a more dynamic person overall. I have learned to balance my work an academic life through serving on various committees and E-board positions including community service and social chair. I learned more about networking, event planning, fundraising, record keeping. These are skills that will be useful to me for the rest of my life! Moreover, the various events sponsored by the organization helped me to stay current with the latest updates in pharmacy, and also exposed me to the many different career options a pharmacist can pursue. Most importantly, the support and motivation of my sisters helps me to push myself to my full potential, which is something that I continue to work on each day. My sisters were able to see things in me that I couldn't even see in myself. The memories that we’ve made together are something that I will cherish forever, and words can’t even begin to express the gratitude I have for each and every one of the sisters here at Alpha Pi. At a time in my life when I thought I had no one, I had LKS. Lambda Kappa Sigma as a whole has made such a lasting impact on my soul in just a few years, and I’m extremely grateful for the impact this organization has had on my life. While graduating from pharmacy school comes with the bittersweet reality of no longer being a collegiate sister, I look forward to contributing and giving back as an alumni sister. (LKS for life!)
