Letter to Parents
As Vice-President of Member Education for Kappa Delta's Epsilon Alpha chapter, it is my job to educate your daughter on Kappa Delta. One of my priorities is to make sure that you, as the parent, are informed about sorority life and answer any questions you might have.
Kappa Delta was founded October 23, 1897 at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Nationally, Kappa Delta has chartered more than 150 collegiate chapters and 500 alumnae associations across the country. Our chapter was installed in 1972 and is one of the three sororities on the Missouri S&T campus.
In addition to being a great social network, your daughter will find herself great support through college academics. As you well know, education is the key to a successful future, and at Kappa Delta, we push all of our members to set their goals high and never settle for less than their best. Through academic seminars, grade monitoring, and the help of her older sisters, she will always excel scholastically.
Kappa Delta has a strict no hazing policy. We will read the Hazing Statement and Membership Expectations Sheet to your daughter and she will sign it, showing that she has agreed not to allow herself to be hazed by Kappa Delta or haze others.
We are confident that being a member of Kappa Delta Sorority will enhance your daughter’s college experience. It is a privilege that comes with responsibility. We expect our members and new members to excel academically and encourage them to participate in campus activities that will improve their leadership skills and expand their knowledge.
Kappa Delta encourages its members to assume chapter responsibilities as an appointed and/or elected officer. We anticipate members and new members will learn the value of philanthropy as they take part in our local and national charitable efforts, as well as our social events.
