Letter to Parents
Dear Mothers and Fathers,
First off, I want to congratulate your daughter on being accepted to Queens University of Charlotte and would like to welcome you to our Royal Family here at Queens.
Kappa Delta Sorority was established in 1897 by four women who had a vision of bringing women together who would seek the more honorable, beautiful, and highest things in life. They imagined their sisters to be women who wanted to grow as leaders and help build confidence in all women. Our founding sisters have created a flourishing sisterhood that now has over 230,000 collegiate members and more than 500 chartered alumnae chapters.
Our founders did not create Kappa Delta to be just a collegiate organization, but a true sisterhood that will support your daughter for the rest of her life. Kappa Delta offers internships, scholarships (undergraduate and graduate), recognition awards, a bigger networking pool, and continual involvement in Kappa delta beyond the years as a collegiate member. National Kappa Delta is also dedicated to helping the women who wear the badge of KD become empowered leaders in society. Besides the continual resources that give advice on leadership, Kappa Delta hosts a collegiate officer training that occurs every other year for the Council of each KD Chapter. Our National Leadership Team is also very engaged with the collegiate chapters and continually visiting them and training the sisters to be a better leader.
Leadership is one quality the Alpha Omicron Chapter of Kappa Delta admires most of all, with individuality a close second. Our Chapter can be seen holding many external leadership positions around the Queens Campus. Our expectation of our members is to see sisters thrive not only within the Chapter but outside the Chapter and growing individually into a more confident woman. We want to push each sister to succeed with high marks in academics, be responsible for financial obligations, participate in community service, and be outstanding women. Our philanthropies that we support and work with are Girl Scouts of America, Prevent Child Abuse America, and Pat’s Place. Nationally, Kappa Delta has also taken on initiatives that help inspire women and young girls, and recently added on So Say It to bring awareness to dating abuse.
From my personal experience with Kappa Delta in my years, I could have not imagined my collegiate experience any other way. Kappa Delta has taught me how to be professional, how to be a leader to a diverse set of people, and what true sister hood is. Kappa Delta has given me a home at college and has blessed me with sisters that have inspired me to continually become a better person, and a better Kappa Delta.
On behalf of the Alpha Omicron Chapter, we hope you encourage your daughter to go Greek and go through our Formal Recruitment process. It will help her meet all the lovely women in the Queens Greek Life and maybe help her find her next chapter of her life.
