Carla Spera

President

I am a junior majoring in Retail and Supply Chain Management from Binghamton, New York. I am also the Treasurer for the Women’s Club Basketball Team and Girl Code Movement. In my free time I enjoy working out, stalking food accounts on Instagram, and playing Tetris. Alpha Xi Delta has given me the opportunity to find my home on campus and grow as a leader. The women in this chapter are some of the most strong, courageous, and motivated women I’ve ever met, and that is what has helped shape me into the person I am today.

Nadine Ghantous

Vice President of Membership

I’m a junior biology major here at Syracuse University with the intention to minor in Nutrition Science. Other than a heavily science based work load, I’m a member of Syracuse’s University Union. I’m on the PR E-Board as the alumni relations chair. I love working out, exploring Syracuse, and have an unhealthy obsession with Instagram and VSCO. I honestly am not sure what my college experience would be without everything Alpha Xi Delta has given me. I’m forever grateful for being constantly surrounded by people who not only care and love me but push me to be the best version of myself. Something I hope, through my position as Membership Vice President I can also help incoming freshman find.

It is an entirely free camp for children whose parents have cancer. In my spare time I enjoy reading, eating way too much ice cream and hanging out with my best friends. Alpha Xi Delta has become a place I have grown to call home, a place that has introduced me to so many wonderful friends who I am lucky enough to call my sisters, and a place that has helped shape me into a more involved, responsible, and compassionate person. I will always be grateful for the wonderful opportunities our sisterhood has to offer and that is exactly why I want to be able to give back to this house what it has given me. My hope, is to live up to the extremely high standards that my previous sisters have established before me so I can continue this meaningful legacy. That is why I am so excited to be Vice President of Programs for our wonderful chapter.
