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.
Our chapter's new member program is about giving our new members as many opportunities as possible to get to know one another and the chapter before initiation! The New Member Educator's main job is to answer any questions or concerns the new memebers may have throughout their pledging period. The New Member Educator sets up informational meetings for each member on Chapter Council to come and talk to the new members about their position in Kappa so that they are aware of how things work within our chapter. One on one new member meetings also take place during the new member period so the girls can talk to the Vice President of Standards and the President about anything they may have concerns about. During the new member process girls have the opportunity to get to know one another and share their feelings during new member retreats.
