Alison Runninger

"When my mother was in college, she joined a sorority. I grew up watching her continue to have such a close connection with her sisters years after graduation and I knew that I wanted the same thing. I joined Phi Sigma Rho, because when I met the sisters during recruitment, I knew they were my people. My sisters have been so supportive and we have been there for each other through life's biggest moments. "

I became a sister of Phi Sigma Rho at the University of Cincinnati and later transferred to Cleveland State University where I was one of the founding members of the Alpha Upsilon chapter. I graduated in 2021 from Cleveland State with a BS in Electrical Engineering.I have volunteered on the national level as a Prospective Chapter Educator and as a Director of New Chapter Development.

“I volunteer because I want to give back to the sorority that has given me lifelong friendships and set the organization up for future generations of members and volunteers to thrive. As per the Northeastern-Alpha Tau motto, build upon those who came before, inspire those who will come after!”

I'm a structural engineer/project coordinator based in Boston working for WSP, where I work on primarily public transportation infrastructure projects. In college, I was a part of the alpha class of Northeastern University's chapter, and I graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering in 2021.

"I joined Phi Sigma Rho at the insistence of my ASU honors college mentor. I never thought I would join a sorority, but it was the best decision I ever made in college! The sisters of Phi Rho gave me the encouragement and friendship I needed to make it through my engineering program at ASU. I am grateful that even after college I still have the opportunity to surround myself with all the amazing sisters of Phi Sigma Rho. Volunteering with Phi Sigma Rho has given me the opportunity to make friends with Phi Rhos from all over the country!"
