FORMALities…

A few weeks before formal, my friend Erin and I were lounging on an SRD couch, finessing the finer details of the night and trying to figure out what our group could do that would be a memorable experience for everyone. And I guess what no one tells you about formal, is that planning it…

PC 12 PEACES OUT!

SENIOR YEAR! The year of yes. The year of lasts firsts. The year of SKA! The year we all happily skip and laugh through, until we look up and realize the real world is standing, waiting. A brand new season of life is upon us. A change is coming whether we are ready or not….

We got it from our MAMAS!

Something that I think we can all agree on is how incredibly thankful we are for our moms. They answer the phone every time we call even though they know we will probably be complaining about school (again). They always buy that t-shirt for formal that you really really want and your college student budget…

PC 15 takes Gulf Shores

You know those stories that start off with, “remember that time when…?” Well, those are the kind of stories that come from spending Spring Break of my freshman year in a beach house with your sorority sisters. Spring break in Gulf Shores is quite the experience. There are college kids everywhere- proudly representing their school…

Within the walls of this house

Within the the walls of this house we focus on empowering women. Kappa Delta’s national platform is the “Confidence Coalition” – a focus on instilling confidence in our community and each other. We chose this house to surround ourselves with vivacious, ambitious, and academic sisters who can (and will) impact the people we are. This warm…

KD loves Austin Pets Alive!

When I was in elementary school, I decided to act on my ridiculous obsession with animals and began volunteering at a local no kill shelter in my hometown. My love affair with animal shelters only blossomed from there! Austin Pets Alive is a shelter that removes animals from the euthanasia list and gives them a comfortable…

Fab, Fit and Fun!!

Midway through my first semester of junior year, the “I’m going to have to really adult soon” realization hit me hard. Health and wellness have always been such a huge part of my life. To me, your health is the one thing that no human is exempt from – we all have a body that…

Big and Little take the Big Apple!

Two years ago, we didn’t even know each other. A year ago, we became big and little. Now, we can say we’ve explored New York City together! Being in the business school together has always been great for a lot of reasons – taking classes together, studying together, helping each other with presentations – but…

Welcome to Our House

You know the saying, “If these walls could talk…” Well, I’d love to know what the Kappa Delta house walls have to say.  Since 1981, the Texas Kappa Deltas have held recruitment, bid days, and many chapter meetings within these walls. I imagine they have heard a lot of laughter and a lot of good…

A Semester in Review

This semester has been crazy and beautiful and everything in between. Our semester started with an incredible new pledge class. Seeing them walk into our house for the first time was truly amazing. Little did they know the sisters they just gained and the home they now get to call theirs. We covered ourselves in…

A New Member’s Perspective

  Hundreds of us were sitting in Hogg Auditorium on what seemed like the most important day of our life, other than our wedding day, of course. Just beneath us were white envelopes inscribed with our names on the front. And these little white packages were about to change our whole college career. Finally, we…

Big/Little Week

  From the Big: Coming back to Kappa Delta as a sophomore, I could not wait for our new pledge class, but most importantly, I couldn’t wait to get a little. I was ready to have a girl to spoil, and welcome to Kappa Delta, and be one of my best friends. Our new pledge…
