Ally Nicolella

Recruitment 365 Director and Recommendation Chair

My favorite AXiD memory is Big/Little Reveal. It’s a chapter tradition for all the bigs to surprise their littles by jumping out of cardboard boxes at reveal. My big, who’s just as clumsy as I am, fell over multiple times in her box and eventually just decided to stand up, so she was only covered from the waist-up. I laughed so hard when I approached a box with little legs peeking out. Even though this was a dead giveaway of who my big was, it made reveal hilarious and all the more special.
