Dear Sisters,

The weather this month in Chicago really has not resembled spring in the slightest, but with a ton of fun and meaningful chapter events, our sisters have had a great quarter so far after returning from spring break :) Here is a quick snapshot of how we spent our April.


UChicago aKDPhi

Midwest Sisterhood Convention (MSC)

Our sisters had a great time at MSC last month! We had so much fun performing our stroll, exchanging gifts and connecting with sisters from chapters across the Midwest :) Thank you to our sisters at Michigan State University for hosting a wonderful weekend of love and friendship.

Chinese Bun Sale (Bunraiser)

Our sisters kicked off Spring quarter by hosting for a bunraiser. We sold delicious Chinese buns and successfully raised funds for the upcoming National Convention in Houston, Texas!

Sisterhood BTSR

What better way to bond with sisters than over pretty eyeshadows and sexy eyeliners? For sisterhood BTSR, our sisters completed the cutest 'makeup challenge' at sister Yili's apartment by doing each other's makeup. We learned many new makeup tips and tricks, and had so much fun getting creative and just messing around.

DKE Mixer

We had our first mixer this quarter with Delta Kappa Epsilon (DKE). At this laid back, PJ-themed mixer, our sisters had a lot of fun bonding with the DKE brothers. We are glad to have established a great external relationship with the brothers of DKE and enjoy connecting with the UChicago Greek community through fun events like this.

Prospie RSO Fair

By tabling at the prospie Recognized Student Organizations (RSO) fair, our sisters showcased how amazing aKDPhi is to prospective students coming to UChicago. We were able to get a good number of potential babies to sign up for our email listhost :)

Thai Night

Our sisters attended Thai Night hosted by UChicago Thai Student Association to celebrate Songkran, or the Thai New Year’s festival. Our sisters enjoyed great Thai food from Aroy Thai and played lots of fun games. Shoutout to our sister Sarah Tinaphong for helping to host the event!
