A Message from our VP of Standards:
Being a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma runs much deeper than friendships at UC Berkeley. It’s more than the songs sung during Recruitment week or philanthropies and formals. The women of the Pi Deuteron chapter become more than girlfriends who chat the night away or shop with on the weekends. At Kappa, we truly become sisters.
Sisterhood in the Pi Deuteron chapter encompasses each member in an immediate bond. Through laughter, tears, stress, joys and triumphs, a Kappa sister will always be a knock-on-the-door or a phone call away. Adjusting to college, new classes and living away from home is a difficult transition, but with a network of amazing ladies to rely on, the stress is no longer a burden. Gaining dozens of sisters creates an unbreakable support system that weathers any storm.
Our chapter organizes many sisterhood activities throughout the school year. Bid Day activities allow the new members to meet their pledge class and the upperclassmen. Sleepovers, Game Days and nights out in San Francisco engage the whole house and give everyone a chance to get to know each other. Some of my personal favorite sisterhoods in the past include Halloween pumpkin carving, brunch at Pluto’s (a local restaurant), our annual Easter Egg hunt, and even the S’mores Night we had late in spring! These events strengthen relationships and give members a chance to appreciate how meaningful it is to be a member of Kappa.
The most rewarding facet of Kappa sisterhood is far more momentous than a night watching Gossip Girl after Monday night meeting or walking down to Yogurtland at 10pm in your PJs. Gaining a sister for a lifetime makes four years as an active seem trivial, comparatively. Relationships built during the collegiate experience travel through the years, and the women you once knew at UCB become women you lean on for life.
Love and Loyally,
VP of Standards
