It is my desire to become a member of Kappa Lambda Chi Military Fraternity, Inc., to once again have the brotherhood and comradery that I was able to experience while in the Army. Promoting the values, lesson and knowledge I attained during my military service as wells as those set forth in Kappa Lambda Chi’s mission, is something I encourage when mentoring children on daily basis in my job as a school resource officer. My current position allows me to interact with people from all walks of life, providing me with an avenue to inspire those around me. Becoming a member of Kappa Lambda Chi enables me to further my personal knowledge, while being another avenue for me to impart wisdom, promote fidelity and encourage high ambition to today’s youth

The tenth National President, Dorothy I. Height, wrote: “To preserve tradition, we must bring it into the current decade and make sure it remains viable for decades to come.” Protocol is something mandatory for all sorority’s and fraternity’s. In Delta Sigma Theta protocol is prescribed as respect and recognition for founders, the Nation President and Past National Presidents, the Regional Director/Representative, Chapter Charter Members, and Honorary Members. It is a fact that every Sorority and Fraternity has some type of tradition. In Delta Sigma Theta there are three rites of passage. A soror is entitled to attend the three Rites of passage of any chapter, granted that she is properly attired. Sorors under disciplinary action are not entitled to attend induction and Initiation. The secrets, passwords, signs and grips are never written but are transmitted by word of mouth from one Delta to another. All sorority insignia should be worn properly, respectfully, and in good taste. Membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a lifetime commitment. Therefore, every soror is due recognition and courtesy in each chapter, regardless of chapter membership. Ceremonies may not be altered or suspended without permission of the National First Vice President in conjunction with the Ritual and Ceremonies
My knowledge of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. is that it was founded January 5th, 1911. The Fraternity was originally chartered under the name Kappa Alpha Nu, which is believed to be in honor the Alpha Kappa Nu club that began in 1903 but was short lived due to few registrants. Kappa Alpha Psi was founded by: Elder Watson Diggs, Ezra Dee Alexander, Byron Kenneth Armstrong, Henry Tourner Asher, Marcus Peter Blakemore, Paul Waymond Caine, George Wesley Edmonds, Guy Levis Grant, Edward Giles Irvin and John Milton Lee.

I am writing this letter to express my interest in your illustrious organization, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I am currently a senior majoring in Criminal Justice, minoring in African American Studies with aspirations of becoming a Social Justice Attorney. Born in the inner city of New York and being raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, I am not your typical Southern Belle or City girl. I like to think of myself as being a fine mix of the two. At a young age my mother groomed me into what she believed a well-rounded lady should be. A woman of substance carries herself eloquently, seeks knowledge in all aspects of life, and understands the importance of philanthropy. All of which characteristics, are thoroughly exemplified in the
Through research online, I am aware that Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., was founded at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana on January 5th, 1911 by ten visionary men; Elder Watson Diggs, Ezra D. Alexander, Byron Kenneth Armstrong, Henry Thomas Asher, Marcus Peter Blakemore, Paul Waymond Caine, George Wesley Edmonds, Guy Levis Grant, Edward Giles Irvin and John Milton Lee. Also through my research, I have learned that the organization is comprised of men who aim to carry out its motto of “Achievement in Every Field of Human Endeavor.” And that due to the organizations focus on leadership and service, I am aware of some of its well-known initiatives such as the Kappa Beautillion from the Guide Right Program, Kappa League and its philanthropy
“Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise, I rise, I rise.,” to become a Delta Woman. When asked to express why I should be awarded the honor & pleasure of being apart this great sorority; I must admit I was a bit overwhelmed but also very humbled. However, I am reminded of the great women Delta Sigma Theta has helped mold some of the most influential women in the world. I want to be apart of the most illustrious sorority organization. The only organization that maintains and follows the principles set forth by the 22 founders that started it all based on community service and scholarship. I am physically and mentally prepared to serve for a life time. I am confident in all that I commit myself
Like plenty of other girls, I never saw myself joining a sorority. I also lacked the self-esteem to believe that I would actually receive a bid from any sorority. However, in my first semester of being a freshman; I decided to participate in fall recruitment. Upon receiving a bid for Alpha Sigma Tau, I immediately felt a change taking place within myself.
My profile essay is going to be over Delta Sigma Theta Mu Sorority Inc. I will be talking about the history, benefits, and interesting facts. I will be interviewing a sister from the sorority to get personal facts and experiences they have encountered. I will be writing my essay in first person because this is a rather important essay to me. I chose to write about the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. because I am very interested in the history. I have heard many things about the African American Greek life and I want to learn more. I feel that being on campus here at Oklahoma State University, I need to take advantage of the African American organizations offered here in Stillwater. Not just yet, as a freshman, am I going to pledge for anything
My increased desire to become an Alpha Man has been driven by my lifelong history and encounters with many of my past educators that are Alphas. I grew up in a typical underrepresented environment that had a big impact on my everyday life, from drugs, gangs, and a lack of ambition. Somehow that changed when I went to school, there where men in my schools that looked the same as the ones in my community, but the way they dressed and carried themselves was different. I later learned they were men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. These men didn’t come from where I came from, the men I saw in my community didn’t have the drive and determination that these men had. I realized at a young age that I had to be different from my peers and the older males, and that I refused to be a statistic and apart of the cultural norm of drugs and gangs.
The first notable member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated that really sticks out to me is Umzae George Washington Carver. He was initiated in the Gamma Chapter in the year of 1918. To begin I selected him, because he was a very familiar name. I remember learning about Umzae George Washington Carver in the elementary and middle school. With creating over 100 different uses for the peanut, soybean, and sweat potato he was a very prominent African American man in the 1920s. Umzae George Washington Carver was a very intelligent man paving the way for many other great inventors. Also, in regards to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated he was a charter member of the Tuskegee Institute Alumni Chapter. During my research I learned that
“We take [academics] into a huge account, essentially, if you don’t meet our guidelines then we don’t really allow for membership past that point,” Kristen Holcombe, Kappa Kappa Gamma president, said.
