HOW WE KAPPA
MANY WAYS TO KAPPA
AND WE LOVE THEM ALL
"It’s incredibly rewarding watching our organization continue to evolve and grow, and knowing that I get to play a part in supporting our development."
Dorian Light Shaw
"I have learned so much, been challenged and have gone outside of my comfort zone. There is an amazing support system within Kappa, and I have learned much from their leadership, expertise and guidance. The role of a PDA also means I get to spend time with people making a special connection."
"Any type of volunteering is good for the soul but being able to volunteer for the chapter that you were an undergraduate member in is remarkable. I learn so much from the women and keeping my connections to our Kappa ritual has been important to me."
Kristen Desmond LeFevre
"Seeing that final, printed issue land in the mailbox three times a year is hard to describe—it’s beyond rewarding. A lot of pride, tears, hustle and laughter go into making each issue the best it can be."
"By far the biggest thing you will learn is the size and scope of Kappa and the many different ways that the organization intertwines with both undergraduate members and alumnae. Expect to develop a deep appreciation for the amount of work it takes from both staff and volunteers to run Kappa."
"Knowing that the New York Alumnae Association exists as a valuable networking resource for Kappas all over the world who decide to move to New York City is just the best. We’ve matched countless alumnae with roommates, apartments, jobs, furniture, lifelong friends, etc., me included!"
"Seeing the joy on members’ faces as they learn new tools to help them in their Kappa life and beyond is very rewarding. I love working with women from all over the U.S. and Canada. I learn something new with each workshop I create and facilitate."
"Visiting Kappa chapters and alumnae associations is a fun way to meet sisters from all over, and is always a comfortable and welcoming experience. This role allows me to teach Kappas about our Foundation and how we help and support our sisters through generations."
"I love being able to serve Kappa at an international level. It has been my dream to volunteer in a different capacity and it is now a reality!"
"One of the most rewarding things about my role is my ability to connect with our undergraduate members. I appreciate how awesome they are! I also love a good challenge, and my involvement with Kappa allows me to experience new and exciting opportunities."
"You have a lot of responsibilities, and you have to be willing to commit your time and energy. However, I always tell people that it is worth it. You build an even stronger bond and commitment to our organization. The emotional connection is what keeps me motivated and dedicated."
