My name is Rachel Barron, Chapter President. Welcome to the website of the Alpha Upsilon chapter of Kappa Delta! Our chapter is part of a national sisterhood with 230,000+ initiated members across the country. Together we build confidence and inspire action in all of our members by offering opportunities for leadership, personal development, academic success, friendship, and community service.
Joining a sorority provides the unique opportunity to make lifelong friends while remaining true to common values, but diversity in personality, interests, and activities allows for the opportunity to grow by learning from one another. Growth – in personality, leadership, social success, etc. – is something we strive for in Kappa Delta, and it starts by building confidence in our members.
I’ve had the unique opportunity as President to witness this growth and development in each member. Not only do our members become successful in academic achievements and leadership, but our members grow and mature into young women who believe in themselves and encourage others. Our members are involved in over 50 campus organizations including sports teams, tutoring positions, various honor societies, SGA, and others, and many of our sisters hold leadership positions in these organizations as captains or executives. We strive for excellence, and Kappa Delta gives many of us the confidence to pursue our goals and reach for the extraordinary. Alpha Upsilon has seen success in many other areas, such as winning Sigma Chi’s Derby Days competition to raise money for philanthropy, completing a successful Shamrock Shootout to benefit Prevent Child Abuse America and The Exchange Club of Birmingham, and having the 3rd highest GPA of all Greek organizations, but the biggest success is who we become thanks to our Kappa Delta values and the love from our sisters.
With the help of Kappa Delta’s Confidence Coalition, we push each other outside of our comfort zones in order to grow into the young women we’ve always hoped we would be, and that growth is absolutely irreplaceable thanks to KD and our sisters. Thanks for visiting Alpha Upsilon’s website!
