Chapter President's Welcome Letter
Hello and welcome to the Omicron Chapter of alpha Kappa Delta Phi here at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo! I appreciate the time that you’ve taken out of your day to get to know our chapter a little better.
Established in the Spring of 1996, Omicron Chapter has fostered the making of timeless friendship through sxsterhood. Before I joined this chapter, I thought that "timeless friendship through sxsterhood" was just a cheesy sorority phrase, but now I've lived it and believe it.
Transitioning into college was a really hard time for me- I missed my friends from home, I was anxious about how my classes would be, and I was scared of not making any genuine friends. So when I saw the booth for aKDPhi, I put my name down on their list. And to be completely truthful, I only did that because I was lonely. Going out to rush, I had no idea what to expect, but after each event, I felt as though I met a group of people who I really enjoyed being around. We bonded over the asian foods we missed the most, and which concerts we wanted to go to, and the things we wanted to get out of our college experiences. After getting to know the sxsters of the house, I finally felt that I found a place where I belonged on my campus.
And within the three years I've spent in this sorority, I've found my home away from home. The time I've spent in this sorority has been amazing. I joined aKDPhi for the sxsterhood, but it's given me so much more that I will be eternally grateful for. I've grown- professionally and socially- into someone that I admire, and it's because of the strong, beautiful, and brilliant womxn who I'm surrounded by on a daily basis. Whether it be active members or alumni, my sxsters inspire me to want more for myself and to dream big dreams. The support system that my sxsters provide is unmatched and they've helped me to become proud of my culture- to be proud of who I am and how far I've come.
The experiences and the love that I've received from being in this chapter are things I'll be able to look back on with the fondest of memories. I know all the incredible things this chapter has done for me, and I hope that it can do the same for many others to come. I can't thank my sxsters enough for trusting in me to serve as President for the 2020-2021 academic year. Here's to an incredible year!
With Love & Friendship,
