FIND YOUR COMMUNITY
We understand that coming to college is a new and exciting experience! Kappas will not only become a support group to guide you through this chapter of your life, but what's better than creating unforgettable memories with sisters while being involved on campus through our service, philanthropy, and cultural events?
LIFETIME FRIENDSHIPS, ONE SISTERHOOD
Joining Kappas connects you to a diverse and unique group of girls that all look to create everlasting bonds and friendships. We even have sisterhood chairs that create events for sisters to just hang out together and relax when we're not studying for our classes. Many of our sisters become each others' roommates, lifelong friends after graduation, and even each others' bridesmaids!
GROW TOGETHER, LEARN TOGETHER
Being a part of Kappas is more than just joining a sorority. We believe that each of our sister's top priorities is their education and we motivate one another to do well in our academics. ΚΦΛ's values of giving back to the community will also provide opportunities for you to grow personally and professionally. Let Kappas become a resource for you to focus on causes you're passionate about and become part of a sisterhood that values women leadership.

Ironically, I came into college already set on not wanting to rush or be affiliated with Greek life. I was also a huge introvert so I felt like it wasn’t the community for me - but I knew I wanted to learn how to step out of my comfort zone. When coming to my very first rush event, I could immediately see the close bonds between sisters. Kappas truly embody eternal sisterhood through constant support and love. What had really caught my attention was the service pillar. My highschool didn’t provide many opportunities to give back to my community, and seeing that Kappas both hosts events to donate to our philanthropies and volunteers at unique events, I knew this was an organization I wanted to be part of. On top of that, Kappas allowed me to take on leadership roles that pushed me to grow both professionally and personally. I can proudly say I am the best version of myself because of my sisters.
Kappas mean so much to me because joining Kappas taught me so many things and helped me build my identity and self-esteem. I used to be a very shy girl throughout my life. I felt like I couldn’t be myself because I was afraid of people judging me. I felt afraid to talk in front of other people and just being myself in general. I knew I had to make a change to become more confident so I joined Kappas in the hopes of finding my true self. With a strong support system from sisters, I was able to come out of my shell and challenge myself. I took up many leadership opportunities which contributed to my personal growth and professional development. I never saw myself as a leader before and these experiences gave me so much confidence. Also, I met so many great people through Kappas and I never regret joining Kappas. I gained so many wonderful experiences and memories with amazing people that I will never forget. In addition, I was able to network with people from different countries and it truly made my college experience so much better. As an alum, I am happy I always have someone to reach out to even after I graduated and I appreciate continuous efforts from both undergrad and alums to keep our sisterhood forever.
I am forever grateful to be a part of Kappa Phi Lambda. I have noticed immense growth in my personal, social and leadership skills even though I have only been a sister for a little while. The nurturing and supportive community of this sisterhood has allowed for this growth, and the sisters truly push each other to be their best selves. Knowing that I have such diverse, empowering girls beside me really fuels my confidence and makes me feel more comfortable stepping out of my comfort zone. On top of that, I have the opportunities to help the community through Kappas, whether that be through fundraisers or even highway cleanups. In fact, the service pillar was what first sparked my interest for Kappas and I look forwards to being able to give back to the community as a sister. Kappa Phi Lambda has given me so many new, valuable experiences and I’m excited to spend my last two years of college in this sisterhood.
