Why I Love Being A KD

Let me tell you about my friends

Why I Love Being A KD

In 2014, I came to Alabama to attend Troy University from Brookfield, Wisc. For those of you who haven't ventured up to Brookfield, or down to Troy, you just need to know that they are polar opposites of each other. When I came here I didn’t know anyone. I didn’t know anything about the south. I didn’t know anything about Greek life. A year and a half later, I think it’s safe to say that’s all changed. A big reason that I was able to transition into a completely different world is that I joined Kappa Delta.

I’m sorry if this article sounds cliche. I know everyone says how much they love their sorority on the internet. However, being a dance major, English major, and history minor, I don’t have much time for extra things that I don’t absolutely love. If I didn’t love KD, I wouldn’t have a reason to be one.

Between rehearsals, traveling for auditions, and tackling endless hours of homework, I don’t have too much free time, but it’s not difficult to be busy and be a KD. My sisters want me to succeed. I know that sounds like a given in any friendship, but that hasn’t always been the case for me. I remember having a high sense of competition between some of my friends and me growing up, but it’s not like that here. We don’t compete against each other. A victory for one KD is a victory for the whole chapter.

My sisters are so supportive of everything that I do. My freshman year, I didn't have a car and I needed to get to Atlanta for a ballet summer intensive audition. I asked my sisters on the Facebook wall and multiple girls offered to drive me to my audition. That is a three-hour drive from Troy! I was able to attend and everything worked out. I am so grateful to have such good sisters.

I love how being in KD is like having a home away from home. My family within KD is pretty big because my big has three other Littles. My family alone is a great example of how diverse KD is. My family has girls studying nursing, business, hospitality, art, education, ect., you name it. We all come from different backgrounds but, somehow, we all fit together. That's how our entire chapter is. There’s not just one stereotypical version of a Kappa Delta because each of us is so different.

I think that any KD in the country can say that one of the things that is so great about our sorority is that we get to work with children. We donate our time to Girl Scouts by holding fun badge days for them. We donate all our money we raise throughout the year to Protect Child Abuse America and the local Child Advocacy Center. We try to instill confidence in children, just like we instill confidence in each other.

I'm so thankful for my decision to rush my freshman year and my decision to go Kappa Delta. I think I can speak for every sister when I say it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I know that no matter what my sisters are supporting me and there to be my life long friends.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
