Becoming a Sister
Updated: Feb 25, 2019
Kappa Kappa Gamma -
I cannot imagine my first semester college experience without the sisterhood I have found in Kappa Kappa Gamma. When I decided to spend the next four years of my life at the University of Illinois, I was excited for all the opportunities available on such a large campus, but with that came the fear of not being able to make such a large university feel personal. However, I am thankful to say I have found my place in Kappa.
Running home on Bid Day with 50 strangers was overwhelming to say the least, but since that day I have grown closer to those 50 girls and have truly learned the meaning of sisterhood. When going through the formal recruitment process I knew one of the most important things I was looking for in a house was an obvious sense sisterhood and I felt that as soon as I walked through the door at Kappa. You could tell just by the atmosphere during recruitment that these girls really cared for and supported each other in all aspects of their lives.
I think I can speak for my chapter when I say Kappa is a place where all members are encouraged to be themselves and strive for success and happiness. Sisterhood is an often undervalued in the sorority experience, but without the sisterhood I’ve found in Kappa Kappa Gamma this semester alone, my college life would not be complete.
