A Letter from our Vice President of Standards:
Besides unconditional love for her little, an obsession with Elle Woods, and the ability to rock any themed outfit, the one thing that every sorority woman has in common is that her house helped her to find her best friends, her soul mates, her people. I’m no different; Kappa has given me the only people who understand my neurotic tendencies like random dance parties, love of pajama sets, and complete inability to talk to guys. Kappa has also given me something much deeper and much more sacred; Kappa has given me sisterhood. My sisters' steadfastness gives me more confidence than I ever knew I had.
Sisterhood is community, wisdom, support, respect, and admiration. It’s not just having 150 girls to break down the door of the boy who made you cry, but 150 girls who will pick up the little pieces of your heart and put them back together with love. It’s not just sharing plans about the weekend or year or even up to grad school, but opening up about your hopes, your dreams, your fears, and your deepest secrets with the knowledge that there is no judgment; that these women will only lift you higher. Sisterhood is knowing that on the worst day of your life, there is a big blue couch to run to and hugging arms to carry you through. It’s not just a roommate, but also a cuddle buddy when you don’t want to sleep alone. It’s a partner in crime, an honest opinion on that outfit (yikes), only watching Netflix alone if you want to, and always having someone to dance with.
At Kappa, sisterhood isn’t just a monthly obligation (don’t get me wrong we have super fun sisterhood events once a month with ice skating and cookies and white elephants and cider mills; they rock), but a part of the very core values that we learn from day one. Devotion, sisterhood, and sincerity are what set us apart.
I don’t think there is a letter long enough or words powerful enough to convey what the sisterhood here at Kappa Kappa Gamma means to me. I don’t think this letter comes close to truly explaining what sisterhood is, but I hope you get the idea.
All you really need in life is Starbucks, sparkles, and sisterhood. – TSM.
