As you return to school for your first, next, or final year in Kappa Alpha Theta, think about what you want out of your Theta experience. Everyone joins for various reasons - and stays for various reasons - and that is okay. That adds diversity and gives everyone a different experience. Kappa Alpha Theta strives to create an environment in which everyone is welcomed, is encouraged to bring something different to the table, and has the chance to get involved.

If this is your first year in Theta, I encourage you to take advantage of every minute you have with your sisters. Look at each event, coffee date, leadership position, and chapter meeting as an opportunity to bond with your sisters, form lasting friendships, and find your place and passion through Kappa Alpha Theta.

If you are entering one of the "middle" years in Kappa Alpha Theta, I encourage you to stay engaged. Think back to why you joined Theta, what you loved about it, and what you still want to experience through Theta.

If this is your last undergraduate year in Kappa Alpha Theta, I encourage you to get to know the new members, strengthen those friendships you already have within Theta, and think about the legacy that you want to leave. It is easy to take advantage of being so close to all of your sisters in college, and also forget that in a number of months everyone will go their separate ways.

Kappa Alpha Theta truly has the ability to change women's lives, to create bonds and friendships that will last a lifetime, and to help members grow in ways that were at one time unimaginable.
