New Member Program

The whirlwind of going through Recruitment, being extended a bid and then joining Kappa for life can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Kappa gives our new sisters a warm welcome by extending friendship and mutual support through our new member program.

The new member period is a time to learn about the Fraternity and educate women on the expectations and requirements of being a Kappa. Each new member is given a Big Sister to guide her through this new stage of her life. New members also attend a retreat to foster and develop the new friendships and connections within the chapter.


This semester our wonderful New Member Chair, Paige Lineau, planned Big Appreciation. Our newest pledge class got to show how much they loved their bigs during a fun-filled two-day experience. The littles gave their bigs snacks, knick-knacks, and other creative things! Another event that the new pledge class would have loved is the Key Paddle Dinner where our Pledge Class of 2018 would paint keys for their littles and In return, the littles would paint a paddle for their big sisters. This dinner would have been a super great bonding experience and we hope to have it in the fall! Now that the semester is winding down and August will be here before we know it Paige is hard at work planning Bid Day and our new member experience for the Pledge Class of 2020.
