Q: What are the benefits of joining alpha Kappa Delta Phi?

Being a member of our sorority can offer many benefits. Joining a sorority can enhance your undergraduate life by: a) expanding your social and professional network b) allowing you to experience personal growth in dealing with a diverse group of women c) offering you a chance to challenge yourself in leadership roles d) creating friendships through sisterhood that will last a lifetime, and e) so much more!

Q: Does attending recruitment commit individuals to joining the sorority?

Participating in recruitment does not mean you are obligated to join. It is purely a time for you to explore your interest in alpha Kappa Delta Phi and determine if membership is something you would like to pursue.

Q: Do I have to be Asian to join?

Definitely not. As an organization that seeks to promote cultural awareness, we hold the concept of equality in the highest regard. alpha Kappa Delta Phi does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, age, national origin, or sexual orientation. We are an all-inclusive sorority. Any woman who shares similar interests and values is encouraged to join regardless of their own cultural identity. alpha Kappa Delta Phi is composed of the diverse backgrounds and lifestyles of each individual sister. Each member adds her unique experience and spirit to the sorority, building the sisterhood that we are so proud of. We encourage ambitious and motivated women interested in enhancing their college years (and beyond) to attend recruitment or start a chapter.

Q: What is expected of a New Member?

The purpose of sorority education consists of education about the sorority and chapter. New members should demonstrate a desire and ability to support alpha Kappa Delta Phi’s sorority standards. Hazing, defined as “any action taken or situation created to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule,” is not condoned nor tolerated.
