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.
After accepting a bid in the Eta Mu Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma, you enter a beautiful sisterhood of supportive, loving women. The New Member Chairman (New Member Mom) and Assistant New Member Chairman (New Member Aunt), guide you through New Member retreats, meetings and explain aspects of sorority life New Members may not be accustomed to yet. The New Member Mom and Aunt also set up "Owl Pal" dates and "Fleur Friends" so that New Members get to meet active members and perhaps, their potential big!
Big Little is one of the best parts of becoming a New Member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. We take into great consideration New Member preferences to match the newest class of Kappas with a mentor of their choice to guide them through Kappa, UCSC and beyond!
