Hi Everyone,

CONGRATULATIONS PC '16! I am so thrilled that I get to call you all my sisters! Thank you again to everyone for making this such a special weekend. Special shoutout to:


Mary and Kate G for their meaningful workshops at retreat.

Madeline and Erin, SET Leaders, McKenzie, Tarina and Ashley for all of their work with Ritual and White Rose. It would not have been possible without you all.

As a reminder, Diversity Dinners begin this Tuesday at 5:30 pm!! Our first topic is ethnicity. Please sign up by Monday evening at 5:00 pm so that we can order pizza for sisters not on the meal plan.



VP Member Education Elise Czuchna emc289

Thank you all again for such a wonderful New Member Period! I really appreciate all of the hard work that you all put into it, as well as all of the support you provided for me over the past four weeks. I wanted to especially thank the SET Leaders, McKenzie, Erin, Madeling, Jen, and Ruby for all of their help. I'm sad that it's over, but I am super excited to finally welcome all of the New Members into our sisterhood!

Also, thank you to the New Members for being so amazing! Yes, you guys made me cry today at Chapter, but it's because I love you all so much!

If anyone has any suggestions for New Member Period and how it could have been/could be improved, please reach out to me (emc289) and let me know! I want to ensure that next year's New Member Period is even better!

NEXT SUNDAY is the Philanthropy Workshop during Chapter. Miranda will be doing a presentation about our two philanthropies (PCAA and the Girl Scouts), so please all be there. Especially because, afterwards, we'll all be heading over to the Benefit Concert (and I'm emceeing WOOHOO!).

Lastly, look out for an email in future weeks about Lineage Appreciate Week. It's the first time that we'll all be able to appreciate one another with our new additions!!!

You are all so loved!

VP Standards Jacqueline Pecaro

Hi lovely Kappa Deltas,

First off, welcome PC'16! We're so excited you are all initiated sisters and can't wait for the years to come! Sorry for the long announcement in advance!

Just a reminder, we have chapter every Sunday at 12:30 pm. Chapter is an integral part of being a Kappa Delta and mandatory. Each senior is allowed 2 unexcused absences and 1 late absence and every else is allowed 1 unexcused absence and 1 late absence. Coming late to chapter 3 times equals 1 unexcused absence. If you have legitimate excuses, please by Thursday night at 11:59 pm, not by text, email, Facebook message, or in person. Any excuses received after that time will be considered late excuses, except for sisters who got sick, had a family emergency, or a job or internship interview come up.

I hope you all are excited for wet week! Remember to be safe, pace yourself, and eat a big dinner. If you ever at any point feel uncomfortable or sick, come find me, another council member or a sober monitor. We still need 1 more sober monitor for Friday, so email me if you want to volunteer, and get out of the sober pool for date night!

As you post pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and Snap Chat from wet week, please be mindful of what you put online. Kappa Delta has a zero tolerance policy about letters and alcohol or drugs. If Lenora Sparks likes your picture on Facebook or Imani or I ask you to take it down, please take it down within 24 hours.

We still need 6 more sober monitors for date night! Email me and let me know if you want to volunteer. I will be pulling sobers from the sober pool next chapter.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to be a sober monitor already!

Love in AOT and Standards,



Hey guys!


FIRST: I will be holding two seminars on GIN system this week and/or next week! Please fill out this form telling me when you are available! I highly encourage new members to come because after this week, the announcements will no longer be emailed to you! They will only be posted on gin. The link at the top of the page will take you to the website. Your username and password are the same as the ones for Nautilus Network that you made when you accepted your membership. Your username is NOT your email! If you have trouble logging in, email me. :)

SECOND: I want to know how you want to be notified about announcements! Fill out this form and tell me if you want to get texts, emails, neither, or both!!

THIRD: I created this google form so that when I send out the points totals it will be anonymous. I cannot start sending out totals until everyone fills this out! I ask that you choose a unique 4 digit number that has meaning to you such as the last four digits of your cell or of your student ID. Please don't pick "1234", "4321", etc. because People might end up with duplicates. You can also choose a secret word (something appropriate) if you wish.

By the way, does anyone know what ta kala diokomen means? Answer in the points form! Thanks!

I know I have been saying this for a while, but I will send out your points updates with the minis! Most of the chapter has filled out the form above, and I just have to finish inputting the numbers! :)

Love you all,


Appointed Officers

Academic Excellence- Alexis Cousins

Hey everyone!

We are starting an "Academic Family" program within our sisterhood!

This should be a super exciting and useful way to meet and get to know sisters of all ages.

FILL OUT THIS SURVEY ASAP so we can get this started!



Girl Scout Committee Head

Hi hi!

By now everyone should know that the first Girl Scouts event is our annual Cookie Booth Sales which will be this Saturday, March 5 from 12-4 pm at the KD house and Mann Library. YAY get excited!!!

For everyone except PC '16: keep signing up on the google sheet below!

We still need more people to work the later shifts at the event at both the house and Mann. Its only an hour and fifteen minutes of your Saturday afternoon so come support the girls! People who signed up to help with things before the event: pay attention to the due dates and I will send you an individual email later tonight to coordinate what to do with or where to put your posters, etc. Remember everyone except PC '16 is required to get one girl scout point this semester, either for this event or for our second one in early May.

Everyone: If you are not signed up to work a shift, please don't just show up because we do not want to overcrowd the girl scouts. But of course you can still come to one of our booths and buy cookies!! Tell your friends, share the Facebook event, and update your cover photos! It's going to be a stressful (and dehydrating) week for all so what better way to end it than with a mouthful of Tagalongs, Samoas, and Thin Mints!

If you have any questions about signups, jobs, or anything else GS related, feel free to text me: 914-886-3356.

Peace, love & Samoas,Tara

Chaplains Holly and Tini

Hi lovelies!!! Happy initiation weekend and WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST INITIATED MEMBERS, PC '16!!! You all have made us feel extremely old as PC '13 seniors, but we are so excited for you to start a new beginning here at Kappa Delta, a place that you can call home.

We thought the first quote should be from our candle pass song from preference round of recruitment: this verse explains the strength of our sisterhood better than Pinterest ever could and we can't wait to share it with you all.

"I wish for you my friends, this happiness that I've found. You can depend on us, it matters not where you're bound. I'll shout it from the mountain tops, I want my world to know, the friends made here, will last for years. You'll want to pass it on."

Your loving and sentimental senior chaplains,


Fitness- Katie Barlow
