The mission of alpha Kappa Delta Phi Sorority here at the University of Chicago is to provide a sxsterhood among womxn while promoting leadership, scholarship and Asian awareness, particularly in the South Side of Chicago. Our sorority dedicates itself to promoting these values in our university and community.
As a sorority, we are first and foremost a sisterhood. We strive to be there for each other, through thick and thin. Despite the range of personalities that join this sorority, we learn to develop a mutual respect and understanding of each other and the sisterhood. Aside from hanging out normally, we hold regular sisterhood events to relax and get to know each other better.
We also maintain a strong alumni connection by hosting an annual alumni weekend and sending monthly newsletters. Because alumni span from Korea to Hawaii to nearby Wrigleyville, we try our best to maintain whatever level of contact possible. The sisterhood does not end when college does, and sisters will traverse both digital and physical space to keep in touch. Alumni have the option to remain active in the sisterhood by particiating in the National Board and National Alumni Board.
alpha Kappa Delta Phi also has a vast international network. We reach out to other sisters through internal events. In the fall, sisters within the region participate in the Midwest Sisterhood Rally. In the spring, we meet once again for Midwest Sisterhood Conference. Sisters also participate in the annual National Convention and Back-To-School-Retreat, which give us the opportunity to meet and connect with sisters we normally wouldn't have the opportunity to meet.
