Why did you join aKDPhi?
I chose aKDPhi because during rush season, I was able to see the difference between other sororities on the UW Campus and aKDPhi. Our chapter fosters a welcoming environment to womxn who are looking for a home or a safe space on campus. I remember talking to sxsters at rush events and they were always so warm and genuine. Another great thing that I was able to see about our chapter is that the events are well-organized and executed. After sxsters drew me in with love at first sight, I knew I wanted to be apart of aKDPhi's sxsterhood.
How has your time in aKDPhi helped/improved/challenged you?
aKDPhi has challenged me to become a well-rounded leader on campus by encouraging us to attend conferences, doing community service, being involved within the UW community and supporting other Greek events! This has helped me grow by building more maturity and learning how to navigate with the UW community.
