During the month of April, Kappa Alpha Theta participates in Advisor Appreciation Month to recognize the women who demonstrate unwavering dedication to our college chapters. Fraternity volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization, and this month especially, there are several ways to express your gratitude for the time they give and talents they share. Consider these three suggestions:

  • Give them a handwritten note. In a fast-paced world with technology at the forefront of interpersonal communication, handwritten notes are becoming a lost art. A genuine and thoughtfully crafted message can go a long way in expressing appreciation for the support of your advisors.

  • Nominate them for a campus award. Many campuses encourage chapters to nominate outstanding advisors as part of their fraternity and sorority awards programs. If your campus does not recognize an "Advisor of the Year," consider creating awards for your chapter's advisory board that highlight each volunteer's unique strengths.

  • Treat them to coffee or a meal. Behind every Fraternity volunteer is an inspiring alumna with a Theta story to share. Spending quality time with your advisors outside of a meeting that's focused on chapter business is a perfect way to show you care.

Do you have an advisor or mentor who has made a positive impact on your Theta experience? Thank her in the comments below!
