Dear Potential New Member,
First of all, I am SO excited you decided to go through recruitment! It was the best decision I made when I came to school, and I hope you will feel the same way once you are my age. College can be a huge adjustment, and having 130 or more girls right there by your side for it is exactly what I needed. I've made my best friends and had my favorite college experiences with my sisters, whether it be going to a football game or just goofing off during study breaks in the suite.
The best advice I can give to you for recruitment is to simply be yourself. It may sound cliche and you may hear it many times after this, but when you walk into each party during recruitment you are truly just having a conversation and making a friend. If you feel overwhelmed, scared, or like you're making the wrong decision, just remember that at the end of the day all that you're doing is meeting new people! There's nothing too scary about that. All of the nervous excitement you feel is not unnatural because we feel it too.
Hopefully, during recruitment, you'll walk out of a party thinking about how you don't want to leave, and how you would love to come back tomorrow. That's when you know you've found your home. Good luck, and I can't wait to meet you all! If you have any questions about recruitment, Greek life, or Kappa Delta, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
All of my love and best wishes,
Sydney Geiger (Vice President Membership)
