Letter to Parents
As president of the Theta Tau Chapter of Kappa Delta at Bentley University, it is my honor and privilege to serve our sisterhood and introduce you to Kappa Delta Sorority. Kappa Delta was founded Oct. 23, 1897, at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. For over 120 years, Kappa Delta has been building confidence and inspiring action in women of all ages. The sorority has initiated more than 260,000 members and chartered more than 200 collegiate chapters and 500 alumnae chapters across the country.
Our chapter at Bentley University was installed in 2018 and is one of four sororities on our campus. Some of our chapter’s recent activities and accomplishments include:
- Dodgeball fundraiser, raising over $5,000 for Prevent Child Abuse America
- Assisting the local Girl Scout troops in earning badges and selling cookies
- Gratitude and Self-Care workshops around final exam week
- Tabling on campus with our “Coffee for Confidence” initiative
- Earning Platinum Status in Student Programs and Engagement’s standards program
I am confident 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.
Being a Kappa Delta is a positive, enriching experience, but it comes with responsibilities. We expect our members to meet academic standards and fulfill the financial responsibilities that make the existence of our chapter possible. We ask that you support your daughter in fulfilling her academic, social and financial responsibilities to herself and Kappa Delta.
If you or your daughter has questions or concerns, she can reach out to me directly or to an alumna member of our chapter advisory board.
