Last month, Beta Delta completed a successful recruitment full of meeting great girls, bonding as a chapter and of course late night meetings. Despite the lack of sleep, homework time and ridiculous amount of treats KD's consumed.... we were thrilled to welcome 35 new sisters by the end of the week. VP-Membership Heidi Smith and her team put on a beautiful recruitment with each detail clearly thought out.
Night 1- House tour night
The week began with a nautical themed house tour night. Party Chair Chandell Culley transformed the house into a sea of KD. Actives had fun getting to meet the potential new members for the first time and make connections.
Night 2- Confidence Party
The second night of recruitment was the time to show potential new members what our Philanthropy is all about. We showed a video explaining our philanthropies and why Kappa Delta has chosen them. VP-Community Service Samantha Burrows then gave a short speech educating the girls a little bit further. The rest of the night was spent crafting fortune cookies with confidence quotes inside and enjoying Girl Scout themed cupcakes. Big shout out to Party Chair Paige Sjoblom for an amazing Confidence party!
Night 3- Preference Night
The final night of recruitment tends to be, by far, the most emotional for both Kappa Deltas and potential new members. The girls who attend the preference party were greeted by a song and then Kappa Deltas shared some of their memories and reasons why they love their sisterhood. The night was absolutely beautiful thanks to Party Chairs Erin Jelmini and Emme Pugmire.
Finally the stressful week had ended, and KD's were anxiously waiting to see who their new sisters would be. Kappa Deltas headed over to the Quad to meet the new KiDs on the block (our bid day theme). The new members rushed down the stairs by the TSC fountains to meet their new sisters. Hugs and joy were shared and the rest of the night was spent bonding and celebrating at the KD house. VP-Member Education Brooke Lawley worked hard to make Bid Day amazing for the new members!
