Beta Gamma - Fall 2018

When I was a freshman at UT, I yearned to find my home away from home. As cliche as it sounds, I am thankful to have found that home with aKDPhi. As someone with a chronic illness, it was difficult to reach out to others for fear of being judged. However, everyday, I am surrounded with everlasting love from people who accept me for who I am. These girls constantly support me and lift me up when I am feeling down.

Why aKDPhi?

Their support creates a safe environment in which I am unafraid to reach out for help whether it be a medical or academic obstacle. The relationships that I’ve built in aKDPhi have aided in shaping my personal growth as well as help me develop a sense of belonging here at UT Austin.

Although I seem like a reserved person, my sisters can bring out that craziest side of me. I’ve never met a more kind, supportive, and easy-going group of girls to create memories with now and the many years to come. Without aKDPhi, I would not be the person I am today. In the future, I hope to give back to aKDPhi as much as they have given to me.

Beta Beta - Spring 2018

Coming in to college, I had trouble making new friends. I took a chance with the sisters of aKDPhi and came out to their Back to School Club Party. Ever since that night, all of my sisters have given me strength, support, and unconditional love.

Why aKDPhi?

Growing up without any sisters, I always desired having a sister figure in my life. My family, Patenia-Ngo, has allowed me to be myself while teaching me valuable life lessons. My line sisters have been by my side and have continuously pushed me to be my best.

Our chapter as a whole has never failed to put a smile on my face. Whether it is simply our chapter meetings or a club party, I would always leave in a better mood. If it wasn’t for the sisters I have met, I wouldn't have found my home away from home.

Why aKDPhi? When I was rushing I asked sisters this same question. Everyone told me about the sisterhood, the insane connections, and overall fun they have experienced. But it’s easier to be felt than explained. This sisterhood gave me more than I could ever imagined. Our alumni, national and regional sisters, bigs, and line sisters have welcomed me into this sorority with open arms.

Why aKDPhi?

Whether it being meeting sisters from across the nation, career advice from alumni, or my line sisters pushing me to live life to the fullest, the amount of love I have experienced and feel towards this sorority is unmatched.

aKDPhi made this enormous campus a home for me.  So, if you want to know why aKDPhi? Ask yourself why not?
