New Member Program
The whirlwind of going through Recruitment, being extended a bid and then joining Kappa for life can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Kappa gives our new sisters a warm welcome by extending friendship and mutual support through our new member program.
The new member period is a time to learn about the Fraternity and educate women on the expectations and requirements of being a Kappa. Each new member is given a Big Sister to guide her through this new stage of her life. New members also attend a retreat to foster and develop the new friendships and connections within the chapter.
After Recruitment, women who have been extended a bid to Kappa will go through a new member period. This consists of a retreat, receiving a Big Sister, weekly chapter meetings, new member meetings and Inspiration Period, designed to help each new member adapt to sorority life and understand what it means to be a Kappa at Duke University.
