Social acceptance is wanted everywhere. No one wants to be left empty-handed and unwanted. Although people go about getting this acceptance in different ways, people who choose to join a fraternity or sorority are lacking something in their life, whether it is self-esteem or genuine friendships. They have a need to be a part of a group, even if they may need to change their ways and conform to the organizations demands.
The Kappa Alpha Psi motto of “achievement in every field of human endeavor” has been recited to me many times by the fraternity members that I have encountered, and has also resonated with me throughout several years. This inspirational quote motivates people, principally African Americans, to strive for greatness regardless of the potential obstacles that he or she may face whilst trying to achieve a goal. It also exemplifies the perseverance that people will have to express whilst going through those obstacles, whether large or small. Many African Americans have been degraded and discriminated upon, but the founders of Kappa Alpha Psi wanted their people to know that they can achieve any goal when they set their mind on it. As the great Marcus Garvey once said, “…with confidence, you have won even before you have started”.
Day in and day out we hear about high school and college students wanting to pursue a sorority and/or a fraternity based on the stereotypes these organizations uphold, well I chose to differ. I told myself if I ever decided to become a member of a sorority it would be based solely on their ethical standards, history, and values they are founded upon. Alpha Kappa Alpha, Incorporated consists of ladies of distinction and exemplary character who excel in scholarship, leadership, and service, which are qualities I have chosen to uphold. From my perspective, I encourage myself to maintain a respectable appearance and reputation which doing so inspires me to embrace my self-concept; which helps me confidently excel academically and professionally as a “lady of distinction” and “exemplary character.” Most importantly, I continuously remain involved in community service, being involved allows me the opportunity to learn and understand the lives and circumstances of others by opening my mind, heart, and soul. Overall these qualities strengthen my passion to be a member of the prestigious Alp...
Thrust into the college environment, many first-year students are overwhelmed with a newfound level of responsibility and a dynamically different learning environment. Many freshman women turn to joining a sorority for a smoother transition. For many, being a part of a sorority means having a home away from home. To join however, potential new members must engage in a process known as rushing, “an intense, week long process where potential members vie for spots in their desired sorority” (Kruger, 2013, p. 84). Kappa Phi Lambda asserts their culture and identity during the rush process through shared Asian
This essay is just a brief summary of why I desire to be an Alpha man and the contributions I will bring to Alpha Phi Alpha. As previously stated my fully expounded upon desires would greatly exceed the limits of this essay, so if I had K.I.S.S it into just three words, I would choose; learn, grow, and share. However, I am strong believer of deeds over words, so this essay will serve only as mental fodder and the main course will come in the form of my actions.
The history of fraternity and sorority was invented years ago due to the limitation of regulations on student’s activities and clubs. They are mainly known for their work and service within the community and campus. But the questionable act of sorority and fraternity impact on student’s education and life is the main concern. The commitment and dedication of members within sorority and fraternity overtakes majority of student’s life. In the journal, “The Effects of Fraternity/Sorority Membership on College Experiences and Outcomes,” authors Asel, Pascerella and Seifret, provides the explanation of a Greek’s life experience and the outcome of it. Studies has showed that the number of students spend more hours per week participating in extracurricular
In conclusion, Kappa Delta is the best sorority on our campus. We are proud of our history and our commitment to helping others. Our philanthropies mean everything to us. We try our best to help better serve them and their cause. We try our best to uphold our values that will benefit us throughout our lives. Being confident is the best feeling in the world. When I joined Kappa Delta, I was a shy and awkward teenage girl. Now that I have been in the sorority for some time I have become a strong, independent, and self-assured woman. These ladies have supported me through all my tough and hard times. No matter what happens in life I know that they will be there for me. Kappa Delta will always be home for me!
...t the top, but to raise the bar higher for those who are reaching for the top. The men of this fraternity set an example of achievement; they show that being the best isn’t enough. That is why I want to be a part of this fraternity, because I want to be set the example, I want to show that being okay isn’t good enough, and I want to show that being an African-American male, I will not be hindered by stereotypes or any other preconceptions. Being able to be a part of this organization that will push me to be the man I can be, rather than pull me down to a lower level; will grant me the opportunity to be able to show that others can make it, just like I did. Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. is the organization I wish to represent, progress, and be a member of because their objectives and goals, represent what I stand for, and I couldn’t see myself joining any other fraternity.
Before the eighteenth century, one would not even know what a sorority was; let alone what a sorority meant to the community. Today, everyone is familiar what sorority mean and what they accomplish for the community. The American Heritage Student Dictionary’s definition of sorority is “a chiefly social organization of women students at a college or university; an association of women” (882). The dictionary’s definition gives the impression of a general sorority. Lawrence Ross defines sorority as more than the wearing of letters, or...
Did you know that many successful men and women have participated in Greek organizations throughout their college years? Many people that have participated in Greek organizations have gone on to be very successful. Former President George W. Bush was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon at Yale University. (Besque) Delta Kappa Epsilon has dated back to 1883 when Edward Griffin Bartlett founded it. If students want to rush this particular fraternity there is certain criteria that must be met, they must have academic excellence, a high moral character, and a self respecting character. (DKE) “Nine million college students are members of a Greek organization and whether they join to make friends, build resumes, to go to parties or to learn leadership skills, they each have an incentive to change some aspect of their life.” (Examining the Benefits of Greek Life) Allowing these Greek organizations shows that successful people with positive values and goals do come out of Greek organizations.
