Kappa Deltas have strong leadership positions across SLU. KDs are leaders in the following organizations: Student Government Association, Rach Women's Leadership Program, iLEAD, Oriflamme, Delta Sigma Pi Business Fraternity, and Lambda Pi Eta Communication Honor Society. KD sisterhood means more than just passing a friendly face on campus. It is the reassurance of lvoe and loyalty from friends that cannot be shaken. KDs are dedicated to support each other in every way, whether it is to be a shoulder to lean on, company during long hours of studying, or a night of laughs. We live out our sisterhood when we spend time together: going to movie premieres, dinners before chapter, attending SLU sporting events, celebrating birthdays, candle passes at chapter, and chapter retreats, just to name a few.
Kappa Delta is proud to have several members who are SLU presidential scholars and we currently have 61 members on the Dean's List. We hold academic seminars throughout the semester, allowing members to break up by major and exchange good study habits and tips. We also are implementing a tutoring program, where members can make themselves available to tutor other members in any subject. KDs are involved on campus in Big Brothers Big Sisters, Oriflamme, Great Issues Committee, Ad Club, SLU Cheer and Dance team, Club Soccer, and Club Volleyball. Kappa Deltas also serve as University 101 instructors and eucharistic ministers.
