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.
A letter from Kappa's New Member Educator
For me, going through Primary Recruitment was exciting and nerve-racking all at once. The overwhelming feeling of walking into the first house on day one of recruitment, to the pure happiness of running home to Kappa on bid day was a lot to take in as a brand new college student. I really had no idea what being a new member in Kappa was all about, but our New Member Educator and her assistant made us feel so welcomed, loved, and comfortable during the whole process.
The New Member Program here at Kappa gives our new sisters a warm welcome and the support needed to transition into Greek and Iowa State life! The new member period is a time to learn about the Fraternity and educate women on everything Kappa entails. Each new member is given a Big Sister to guide her through this new stage. From friendship and sisterhood to academics, new members can find support and encouragement from every woman in this chapter.
I can’t wait to welcome the 2017 pledge class!
