Sister, you did it! After all the long nights of studying, writing papers and working on group projects – you finished it all and are on to the next chapter. You might be feeling a mix of emotions: scared about what is next, excited to start a new job or head to grad school, or anxiety for all the unknowns.
No matter what happens, Kappa Delta is there for you, and we have some ways to help you transition into life as an alumna.
Now that you’ve officially graduated, it’s time to update all those accounts you made with your student email and change your address if you’re moving! This is an important step to take right away so your college, Kappa Delta and friends can stay in contact with you. Be sure to start with KD’s Member Portal to update your information and stay in touch. You don’t want to miss out on receiving the next issue of The Angelos in your inbox and mailbox!
Get ahead in your professional journey by engaging with your KD network on LinkedIn! In our private LinkedIn group, Kappa Delta Network, you can connect with sisters from around the world to learn more about job openings, mentoring, career advice, salary negotiating and so much more! With over 20,000 members, the Kappa Delta Network is there for you as you enter the workforce.
There are more than 220 alumnae chapters across the country, and they would love to have a new graduate like you join! Alumnae chapters are a great place for our sisters to come together to build friendships, network and engage in volunteering. And joining is easy! You can find an alumnae chapter on our chapter map and reach out via email or social media to get involved!
Did you know you can volunteer with Kappa Delta right after college? With exceptions of volunteering with your own chapter until two years after graduation, KD has so many opportunities to stay involved and give back, like Chapter Advisory Boards, House Corporations, sorority and foundation committees, and beyond And if you’re moving to a new city, volunteering is a great way to get to know your community and meet people.
And most importantly, as you head into this next phase, go confidently. Graduation is exciting and scary all at the same time, but we’re so proud of you and can’t wait to see all the amazing things you do next! Remember, you’ve put in the work and have the skills you need to succeed.
