The Elmira College Chapter of Iota Iota Iota (or Triota), the National Women's Honor Society, recently held its annual induction ceremony. Triota strives to maintain the feminist values central to Women's Studies: egalitarianism, inclusiveness, and a celebration of the diversity of women's experiences.

This year's inductees were:

  • Mackenzie Becker '23
  • Morgan Kelly '24
  • Simon Rice '24
  • Rebekah Richter '25
  • Towa Yamagishi '24

The featured speaker for the 2023 induction ceremony was Sarah Grossman, Director of Communications and Content Strategy at Elmira College.

In her keynote address, Grossman encouraged students to identify their core values so that, as they go out to make career and life decisions, they can communicate who they are and align themselves with people and organizations that share those values.

"When I started my college journey, feminism was a bad word. I knew many women who believed in the ideals but wouldn't call themselves feminists. But that is thankfully changing and this is an exciting time. Culturally we're exploring many new concepts and at times it will be messy. But if you know your values, you can make choices that will be right for you. Enjoy this journey and good luck with your endeavors."
