Many brothers showed their love for the fraternity by sharing all the reasons they cherish their membership. These are the stories that remind us just how important the fraternity is and prove that it’s an experience that lasts long after graduation. Read on for their responses.
On September 27, 2015 the Kappa Lambda Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated., conducted Rush at 1:00 pm in the TCU Moudy South building. A total of eight ladies attended this event. Out of the eight, seven received favorable votes and applications where sent to Corporate. Corporate approved Ms. Briyet Sigala and Ms. Kayla Adams. Ms. Erynn Reed and Ms. Victoria Thompson met the requirements, but had flaws in their applications; however, we are waiting to hear back from Madame Regional Director regarding the corrections to their applications. In addition, Kappa Lambda was instructed to order four MIP manuals and four protocol books.
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
It’s ultimately a sisterhood that should never be discouraged. Delta sigma theta is founded on scholarship, sisterhood, and community service. The number one rule to surviving becoming a Delta Sigma Theta is to be discrete as possible. Showing discretion is keeping your business to yourself and not having anyone know your every move. No one should even know that you are thinking about pledging. When joining a sorority, it is made very clear that whichever sorority you are trying to pledge that there will be no hazing allowed. It depends on the school and chapter you are associated in whether they will make you participate in hazing. Hazing is humiliating and sometimes dangerous initiation rituals, which are usually performed on college students seeking to be in a fraternity or sorority. If you really are passionate about being a part of a DST, you will get through it! Delta Sigma Theta traditions include: secrets, passwords, signs and grips are never written but are transmitted by word of mouth from one Delta to another. Membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a lifetime commitment. Therefore, every soror is due recognition and courtesy in any chapter, regardless of chapter membership.
“The chief significance of Alpha Phi Alpha lies in its purpose to stimulate, develop, and cement an intelligent, trained leadership in the unending fight for freedom, equality, and fraternity. Our task is endless.” Jewel Henry Arthur Callis. Since its founding Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity has remained loyal to its ideal of providing advocacy for its community. Becoming an Alpha is a life time goal of mine. I would like to become an Alpha because of encounters with other Alpha men, the correlation of Alpha Phi Alpha’s Nationals Projects and My lifetime goals and its Fraternal Brotherhood.
‘Simply said,’ it’s the ultimate experience of a lifetime – an experience unlike any other,” (Sorority Life: The True Meaning of Sisterhood). Sisterhood involves charity events and getting dressed together and maybe even being roommates. Sisterhood is true friendship, but better. Sororities aren’t about paying for your friends, it’s about making something of yourself while also bringing up other women with you. Being a part of a sisterhood is probably the best choice any female could make to help her improve herself in any way. It provides leadership skills, social skills, and helps build teamwork. You share your dreams and your goals and help each other achieve them and then you’re there for each other on bad days and you take care of each
“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
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of my interest in becoming a member of the grad chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Incorporated. My desire to inspire young men and women and make a significant impact on their lives is just one of many reasons I aspire to join your great sorority.
My intention is not to join this organization to step or because I like to party but, because I believe whole-heartedly in the values of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., scholarship, service, sisterhood and finer womanhood. I believe that through Zeta Phi Beta Inc. I will be able to fine tune my leadership skills, make lifelong friendships and help people on my journey as others did for me. It is my hope that this lifestyle will change my life for the better.
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
I want to join Phi Delta Epsilon because it would provide me the chance to build lifelong connections and gain networking opportunities. Most importantly, I see myself forming a bond with other members, studying and sharing memories of what it’s like to be a premedical student at UMass Boston. The ability to connect, strive for success and learning from others with the same goal to attend medical school is what I’m truly seeking as a hopeful applicant of PhiDE. Joining the fraternity is the beginning phase of my strenuous road to become a successful physician.
National Honor Society is a great opportunity for everyone including myself. It has standards such as scholarship, leadership, character, and service. To maintain the standards I already have most of the standards I am a smart student with a 4.0 GPA, I have great leadership and character. The only thing missing is service. I do, do service but not as much. I don’t have many opportunities to help out and volunteer. Maybe joining NJHS can help fulfill that opportunity.
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.
I have been an active member in multiple school extracurricular activities. Mu Alpha Theta is one of the clubs I part take in, and I have been a member for three years. In Mu Alpha Theta, I participate in inter-school test, practice math problems and attend math competition. Another club I participate in is National Honor Society. I have been a member in National Honor Society for eleventh and twelfth grade. In National Honor Society, I engage in volunteer projects for community service hours which showcase the four pillars of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. I also hold the Secretary position in SADD club. My duties include making announcements, informing members of upcoming meetings, and helping other officers with their duties.
