Although the pandemic has changed the way we hang out with friends, it has not changed the importance of friendship. In conjunction with the theme of friendship in the upcoming summer issue of the Forum magazine, we invited members to submit photos to a Friendship Contest posted in our exclusive members-only community, Link.

After sorting through the creative submissions, we're excited to congratulate Mary Sander as the official winner of the contest. She and her roommates visited White Sands National Park where they snapped the winning photo.

"White Sands is very remote so we were able to social distance from others while still enjoying our time together in the outdoors," said Sander. "Friends are very important to me so I am thankful to have these wonderful women in my life."

As the winner, Sander will receive a $75 gift card to the Phi Kappa Phi online store.
