Zeta Chapter at University of Alabama

Kappa Delta

Letter to Parents

Dear Parents:
 

The Zeta Chapter of Kappa Delta at the University of Alabama has nurtured and cultivated responsible, involved members for more than 110 years. We are happy that our chapter continues to foster friendship, leadership, personal development and an altruistic spirit among our members.

If you are the parent of a current member, thank you for giving your daughter the opportunity to be involved in our community. We are grateful every day for her presence! Our chapter would not be the same without the contributions from each and every member.


In appreciation for your support,

The Members of Zeta Chapter

 

Letter from our President

Dear Parents,

 

It is my privilege to welcome you and your daughter to the Zeta Chapter of Kappa

Delta. I am so excited to greet each new member and hope to ensure a positive

college experience.

 

Kappa Delta was founded on October 23, 1897, at Longwood University in

Farmville, Virginia. Nationally, Kappa Delta has chartered more than 150

collegiate chapters and 200 alumnae chapters across the country. Our chapter was

installed in 1904 as the first sorority at the University of Alabama, as well as the first sorority in the state of Alabama. Zeta chapter is also the longest continuously open existing Kappa Delta chapter nationally!

 

I am 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 existing and new members to excel academically, and we encourage all

members to participate in campus and community activities that will improve their

leadership skills and expand their knowledge. Kappa Delta encourages its

members to assume chapter responsibilities, and we encourage everyone to pursue

an appointed and/or elected office. We anticipate our members and new members

will learn the value of philanthropy as they take part in our local and national

charitable efforts. This past year our chapter raised over $60,000 to support

Child Abuse Prevention Services, one of our local philanthropies, and Prevent Child Abuse America, a philanthropy KD supports nationally! Furthermore, we expect members and new members to fulfill the financial responsibilities that make the existence of our chapter possible.

 

Within KD, your daughter will have a "big sister," an initiated Kappa Delta, who

will offer special assistance to help her become familiar with and adjust to sorority

and college life. Our chapter, local alumnae, and the national organization will do

everything possible to make your daughter's college career and sorority experience

the very best it can be. Please support your daughter in fulfilling her academic,

social, and financial responsibilities. We are confident that she will receive back

everything she puts into Kappa Delta and more!

 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Our chapter is looking forward to welcoming your daughter as one of the newest members of our family!

Best,

Caroline Shannon 

Kappa Delta President
