Huge congrats to this group of 2021 grads as they celebrate some amazing accomplishments and bright futures. Here’s to some of our newest college graduates and Omega Phi Alpha alumni.

Samantha Miguez Tolliver (Alpha Iota)

Samantha is receiving a Bachelor of Arts in History and Secondary Education from Notre Dame of Maryland University. She had been planning on going right into the classroom to teach but was offered a Graduate Assistant position at Notre Dame of Maryland where her graduate degree will be completely paid for!

Omega Phi Alpha means everything to me; freshman year I felt so isolated but joining made campus feel like home.

Stephanie Parrella (Alpha Sigma)

Stephanie is receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services from Old Dominion University with a minor in psychology. She plans to attend graduate school for a Master’s in Counseling with a concentration in School Counseling with the hopes of eventually getting her dream job of being a school counselor.

Stephanie ends her time at Alpha Sigma as a founding member of the chapter and served as academic chair. Her favorite OPhiA memories were when she got her big and the big-little reveal when she got her little.

Marié Bitzan (Phi)

Marié graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science in business entrepreneurship with a minor in studio art. She is currently working in accounting at a design firm with plans to attend law school in Fall 2022 after taking a gap year. She also is considering multiple offers within marketing and entrepreneurship.

Her favorite thing about OPhiA is the relationships she made and she will especially miss her line. She is so excited to see what the future holds.

I cannot thank this organization enough for allowing me to find like-minded people who make change within the world. Take advantage of the time you have and enjoy making a change side by side with empowering people.
