Letter to Parents
As president of the Delta Chi Chapter of Kappa Delta at LaGrange College, it is my honor and privilege to welcome your daughter to our sisterhood and introduce you to Kappa Delta Sorority. Kappa Delta was founded Oct. 23, 1897, at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. For over 122 years, Kappa Delta has been building confidence and inspiring action in women of all ages. The sorority has initiated more than 272,000 members and chartered more than 200 collegiate chapters and 500 alumnae chapters across the country.
Our chapter at LaGrange College was installed in 1971 and is one of 3 sororities on our campus. Some of our chapter’s recent activities and accomplishments include:
Hosted a campus wide Kickball Tournament that included many teams for our annual Shamrock Week benefitting PCAA and Twin Cedars.
The chapter participated in the Bridging ceremony for our local Girl Scout troops. We will be hosting an upcoming event with our local Girl Scout troops promoting self-love and confidence in honor of National Girls Day.
In honor of International Women’s Friendship Month, the chapter hosted a campus wide event called “Trash Your Insecurities.” Peers were able to write down an insecurity and “trash” it in the trash can as a way to build/promote self-confidence.
The chapter participated in Greek Week, which is a week dedicated to promoting Greek unity and growing sorority and fraternity relationships among chapters on campus. We were paired with Delta Tau Delta Fraternity and together won 1st place overall.
I am confident that being a member of Kappa Delta will enhance your daughter’s college experience just like it has mine. Our chapter is led by collegiate officers like me who are elected annually by the chapter members. Kappa Delta encourages its members to assume chapter responsibilities as an appointed and/or elected officer and to be active in other organizations on campus. It’s a great way to develop leadership skills that are useful throughout life. As you can tell by our recent activities, Kappa Delta is committed to community service. Our members make a difference in others’ lives through our support of Prevent Child Abuse America, Girl Scouts and other philanthropic activities on campus. Within KD, your daughter will have a big sister, an initiated member who will offer special assistance to help her become familiar with, and adjust to, sorority and college life.
If you are the parent of a current member, thank you for giving your daughter the opportunity to be involved in our organization. We are grateful every day for her presence, our chapter would not be the same without each and every member. We look forward to getting to know your daughter better and meeting you at an upcoming Kappa Delta or campus sponsored event.
