The National Panhellenic Conference is celebrating Badge Day on March 5, 2018. Here are some women from our Panhellenic community talking about why their badge is important to them.
Without my chapter, I wouldn’t be half of the woman I am today. I am empowered to be a leader, to succeed, and to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be. Having a home away from home and constant support from my sisters is truly why I stay!
We are all very different but in the best way. We bring out different aspects of each other and we are able to help each other because we have all been through so many different things. Everyone is so real and it’s not about having to force yourself to fit in, you’re here because you belong here. All our values balance each other out, and help us strive for being the best versions of ourselves. It’s not only helpful in college but these values are important throughout your life.
I love sigma delta tau and how we value friendship and philanthropy! To me, being a good friend means having compassion and empathy. Sigma Delta Tau makes me a well rounded individual, and allows me the opportunity to give back to my community while growing as a person!
My favorite values within my chapter Scholarship, friendship, leadership. Its everything that is needed in my life as I go through college! I love sig delt bc everyone is very strongly opinionated and it’s cool bc ultimate we are sisters so friendship comes before difference between us.
My chapters values helped me to grow so much during my time in college and made me the woman I am today. I wouldn’t be here without the support I receive from my sisterhood in leadership, scholarship, and philanthropy. I am so proud to be apart of an organization which empowers women to be the best versions of themselves.
One of Sigma Delta Tau’s most important values, in my opinion, is empowerment. When I joined the chapter I was shy and didn’t speak very much in front of my sisters. Older members of the chapter saw potential in me and encouraged me to run for my first position: props director. I would never be the leader that I am today without the support and love of my sisters. They have empowered me to be a stronger and braver person than I ever thought I was capable of.
Kappa Delta has shown me the true meaning of a home away from home. Being a part of an organization filled with so many women to look up to and learn from has given me the chance to truly step out of my comfort zone and push myself to settle for nothing but greatness. Creating a lifetime of friendships with women who share my same values and are always willing to be there for me is one of the many things I will cherish from this sisterhood.
The bonds and friendships I have made through Kappa Delta has taught me the true meaning of sisterhood. Our chapter has such a supportive group of women, who lives up their values, and makes sure to hold each other accountable at all times. I know for a fact that the bond within our chapter is something that I will cherish forever and something that I will always be grateful for.
I have absolutely loved my past fews years being a part of Kappa Delta. I went through recruitment as a freshman my first semester and I honestly couldn't imagine what my college experience would have been like had I not joined so early on. I have met so many incredible people through this chapter that have given me the strength, confidence, and friendships that I know will last well beyond my years at USF. These women have been there for me through all the highs and lows of life and I cannot express how thankful I am for each and every one of them. As I approach my final semester in college, I've become more and more aware of how much I have grown as a person and I attribute much of that growth to USF Greek life and Kappa Delta.
