“Kappa Delta Wasn’t For Me” is a blog post written by Heather Burke, Kappa Delta’s Communications and Technology Manager. It begins, “I didn’t want to be a sorority woman. When I took a job at Kappa Delta National Headquarters in 2012, I walked in the door with a lot of stereotypes in mind. I believed sorority women were a very specific type of woman, and I was definitely not that type.” It is a very worthwhile read about what happened when stereotypes met reality.

Many of my Panhellenic friends are at their respective conventions as I write this and I am green with envy. There is nothing like a fraternity or sorority convention to get the official family and the rank and file members excited about the beginning of another year.
The facebook feed of Lyn Harris, Chi Omega’s Archivist, is filled with pictures of the Chi Omega festivities at the Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.
Two sisters who read this blog are attending two different conventions – one is at the Kappa Alpha Theta convention and the other is at the Gamma Phi Beta convention.
Another friend is at the Alpha Sigma Tau convention. Congratulations to Dave Westol who was honored at the Alpha Sigma Tau Convention. My twitter feed tells me he was just honored at AST’s convention in Jacksonville, Florida.
Congratulations to our McCrory Order of Interfraternity Excellence Award recipient: Dave Westol, J.D!
Alpha Phi’s convention is in session. Alpha Chi Omega and Delta Gamma are opening their conventions and I await pictures and news of those events. Best wishes to all the convention attendees. Have a great time!
P.S. Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Sigma Delta Tau are having leadership seminars, in the off year of convention. And Tri Sigma’s convention was a few weeks in Chicago. And I suspect there will be some more conventions and off-convention year activities happening throughout the summer.
