Cross My Kite & Hope To Fly

Cross My Kite & Hope To Fly, Kappa Alpha Theta ‘Til The Day I Die

During my undergrad, I joined Kappa Alpha Theta. At the time, I had no idea how much Theta would impact my life or how involved I would get. One semester after joining, our chapter moved to a larger officer structure and I was elected the chapter’s first Chief Panhellenic Officer. I was very passionate about sharing Greek history and uniting the other sororities on campus. The following year, I was elected Chief Executive Officer, and that was truly when Theta won over my heart. All of the late chapter meetings, petty drama, and long nights laughing with sisters taught me more about myself than a lecture ever could.

On Thursday, June 23 Theta’s from all over the United States and Canada will make their way to Grand Convention. A meeting that occurs every two years to address Fraternity business, hear from speakers, and make new friends. I was lucky enough to attend Grand Convention in 2014, serving as my chapter’s delegate. I took so many great ideas away from this and went back to the chapter with a fresh vision in mind. I am so excited for the two chapter delegates the Zeta Upsilon chapter will be sending this year. I can’t wait to hear about all the chapters’ success.

  1. Thank you for this! As a fellow Greek, I love hearing about other people’s positive experiences in sorority/fraternity organizations. Many people just assume it’s like on television but it’s truly so much more than that; an extremely enriching experience! 🙂
