When was the last time you attended an initiation?

I was scrolling through Tri Delta Pinterest pins and saw some initiation pics. I was trying to think of the last time I attended an initiation. Probably Convention in 1994 (?).

That's too long.

November, 2011 at the re-installation of my chapter.
But when I attended one as a regional officer, it had been 8 or so years, and before that, it had been about 18 or so years. I couldn't believe how much I had forgotten!

I went to one in 2010 I think? It's difficult now just because of how far away I am from any chapter. Before that I made it to 10 in 4 years for 4 different chapters.

This is terrible, but the last initiation I went to was in 1988 when we installed Duquesne University's chapter. I was honored to be part of the initiation team but doing the ritual with National Officers in the room was a little intimidating!

I would so love to go to another one some day, though.

November 2011, I think? I know it was fall 2011 for sure.

I went to an initiation in November (and met a Greekchatter there! But I didn't know it at the time). We had an alumna initiate whose daughter and two granddaughters are all Delta Gammas. She's already become one of our most active members-a model for all the other initiates to see that membership really is for life!

I enjoyed attending. I wish more collegiate chapters would be more proactive about inviting local alumnae. It makes the ceremony much more special for all. My college chapter usually had a large number of alumnae attend due to the number of legacies and family friends who recommended new members.

Fall 2011 for sure, but the Regional Convention I went to last spring had a Ritual Exemplification. I also participated in an Alumni Ceremony afterwards

January 2012 when I attended the re-installation of my chapter at Western Ky. University. Was proud to be part of the installation team.

November 2012. It was an all day deal due to the size of the Ole Miss New Member classes. Saw lots of Alumnae come for their Legacy or Recomendee. (Is the latter a word?)
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, Kappa Alpha Theta exists to nurture each member throughout her college and alumna experience and to
offer a lifelong opportunity for social, intellectual, and moral growth as she meets the higher and broader demands of a mature life.

I was honored to attend the initiation of my daughter this past November, it was so special to see her become a sister and a daughter to me! What made it even more memorable was that the National President of Theta Phi Alpha conducted the ritual! I only hope my younger daughter will get to experience something so spectacular in a few years!

1999, when I went to my chapter's 70th anniversary celebration. (It coincided with initiation - we had initiation during the day and the anniversary banquet that evening) It's too bad it didn't work out that way for the 80th anniversary celebration, which I also attended.

Alpha Gam's been a loooong time. I was supposed go to the USC installation but details didn't jive with grad school.

SAI College Initiation....2012 Convention over the summer. My alumnae chapter just initiated a Patroness member in January, so I attended that. College Initiation Ceremony =/= Patroness Initiation Ceremony.
