Ella Denman of Wilmette, Illinois, is a junior majoring in business leadership through the Business Leadership Program, and politics and government.

On campus, she works as a tour guide for the University’s admission department and serves on the executive team of Puget Sound’s chapter of the Delta Delta Delta sorority.

Ella loves to explore the Pacific Northwest. As a self-proclaimed “foodie”, she loves to cook. When not trying out a new vegan recipe at home, she likes finding new Tacoma restaurants with friends.

When asked what she plans on doing after she graduates, Ella hopes to take a gap year and volunteer with AmeriCorps and then go into non-profit work by way of law school. She says that her friends led her to discover her passion for helping others and determine her goals for after graduation.

It is such an honor to have been chosen as Sigma Chi’s Sweetheart, especially by people who I consider my close friends and role models. I am so excited to be this chapter’s new sweetheart and to have a role within this amazing chapter and brotherhood.
