Kappa Kappa Gamma UVA is a women’s organization. It all begins with that, but where the members go from that beginning is all up to the individual members. The members of a Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter can engage in campus activities, community service and involvement, or just friendship and mentoring.
The UVA Epsilon Sigma chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma includes some very unique and diverse characters that together form a well-rounded, special group of young women. The group thrives on friendship, leadership, tradition, and academics. We may be hours in the university library, enjoying a hearty meal together, or relaxing in our chapter room during the weekends, the group is very close-knit and the members will support each other no matter what. Individually, all UVA Kappa members shape the University personally, but together as a group, their shared values will make all the difference.
If you’re new to a campus, it’s important to make friends and every year, the Kappa Kappa Gamma women’s organizations invite collegiate women from all sorts of backgrounds to join their clubs. us. Soon we feel like sisters and form friendships that will last a lifetime.
The organizations are continually looking for members that want to take the opportunity to get into leadership roles and encourage their members to become part of chapter management. These positions are partly appointed, partly elected. Through working together in these management positions, the women will develop their collaboration, time-management, as well as interpersonal competencies and skills that will not only benefit the chapter but prepare them for leading roles in their lives after college. Kappa mothers play an important role to let their girls be successful in life. A little guidance is sometimes needed, wouldn’t you agree?
Their well-rounded leadership capabilities and interpersonal friendships will usually not be restricted to their campus life but be useful in other organizations as well. These leaders have shown that they care about what’s important for others and they understand how they’ll get things done, so they will later in life definitely make a difference.
Kappa Kappa Gamma is seeking for all members throughout their life mutual support, bonds of friendship, opportunities for self-development and growth, an understanding of ethical principles, respect for cultural and intellectual development, and an allegiance to a positive attitude towards the essence of life in general.
This year, Kappa Kappa Gamma will set up new relations with Illinois State University (ISU), Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville (SIUE), and Binghamton University. They were invited to join the Greek-letter communities at these schools. The organization is, of course, very excited to be able to work together with these schools as they are known for their lively campus communities, interesting academics, and a strong focus on top-notch educational programming. The organization is convinced that all of these institutions will contribute to the expanding initiatives of Kappa Kappa Gamma.
