Spring Rush

Our theme for this year's Spring Rush was "The Great aKDPhi" and it was inspired by The Great Gatsby. We had events such as "Dress Like A Flapper" and "The American Dream", where we made our own headbands and dreamcatchers. We also had a sports day with Chi Sigma Tau National Fraternity Inc. Overall, we had a blast interacting with girls during our rush events and getting them to see what our sorority and the Greek community is all about!

#aKDPhiSaysNoMore

Every January 31st, we honor the memory of Valerie Zavala, a fallen sister from SJSU and a victim of domestic violence. As a chapter, we took the No More pledge: to KNOW more, SAY No More, SHARE No More, and ENSURE No More. In order to spread awareness, we filled out signs regarding what we were saying "No More" to and posted them on social media. We also attended a self defense workshop and wore baby blue and purple ribbons in Valerie's honor.

February

Founders Week

We had great turnout for the events we held for this year's Founder's Week, consisting of:


  • Founder's Day Dinner
  • BCA Booth
  • Study Jam

Sisterhood

We all took a break from our busy lives to bake some yummy treats and catch up with each other. It was so nice to take a break from business and just spend time with one another.

Fundraiser

Our sisters had lot of fun preparing and selling musubi and milk tea as our fundraiser. It turned out to be a great success!

March

Midwest Sisterhood Conference

On March 12th, our sisters attending our regional event hosted by Upsilon Chapter - University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. We learned the importance of fire safety, had fun strolling, ate good food and made many memories. Once again, thank you sisters for hosting!

VSA x aKDPhi Service Auction

For the very first time, we co-hosted a service auction with the Vietnamese Student Association at UIC to raise funds for each of our own philanthropies. We offered different services such as cleaning, care packages, and food too! It was nice seeing the UIC community coming together to support great causes.
