The Turtle is Chi Eta Phi Sorority's mascot chosen because it is:
• purposefully directed
The Turtle knows when to hold and when to fold. The Turtle tends to move slowly but steadily toward the goal. It tends to constantly renew itself and tries to create an environment that supports and encourages.
Turtles, like our leaders, are risk-takers. They are calm movers and shakers who realize that life is but one long risk. Each time the Turtle moves it must stick its neck out. To implement change we must be willing to move out of our protective shell and have the courage and the confidence to encourage and support creativity and innovation.
Be a risk taker and expand the possible! With these qualities, the nursing members of the sorority shall overcome the cries of time and maintain stability through the years.
