Congratulations! SMU is one fabulous school! And by the way, KKG's Gamma Phi chapter at SMU is one fabulous Kappa chapter!
We always love to see Kappa legacies go through Recruitment. We do hope you hold a special place for Kappa in your heart, but at the same time, we wish for you a Recruitment that leads you to where you feel most comfortable--if that's a Kappa bid, then we are, of course, thrilled! If it's a bid from another sorority on campus, or no sorority at all--we are happy for you so long as you are happy!
With close to 130,000 alumnae, we have thousands of legacies--and we often have more legacies than spaces in a new member class. Kappa cannot guarantee a space for every legacy, just as every legacy can't guarantee a committment to Kappa!
TO ENSURE THAT SMU'S KAPPA CHAPTER KNOWS YOU ARE A LEGACY, your Kappa relative (sister, aunt, mother, or grandmother) will need to fill out a Legacy Notification Form
for you and submit it to the chapter. They can get one of these forms by:
* logging on to www.kappa.org
and downloading it from the sisters-only side of the site,
* cutting it out of their most recent issue of The Key, or
* calling 1-866-KKG-1870 and requesting that one be sent to them.
They may also want to attach a letter describing you, your resume, and a good photo of you. This makes it easier for chapter members to "get to know you" even before you show up at the Chapter house for the first Recruitment Function.
Once they fill this out this form, they need to submit it to (for the SMU chapter):
3110 Daniel Avenue
Dallas, Texas 75205-1436
The sooner the better, but definitely no later than December 1, 2003
Hope this is helpful! We wish you the best! PLEASE keep us updated on your Recruitment experience!
