What People Are Saying About Chapter Housing

When my daughter moved into the Kappa Delta house, I knew she would have good hot meals, a clean and safe environment, and most of all be surrounded by people who care about her. As a parent, that is a great feeling when your daughter is away at college. If she can’t be living with me, I am glad she is living with Kappa Deltas! Janice Birsinger, mother of Julie Epsilon Iota-Missouri

I was hesitant to live in the Kappa Delta house as a senior, but, looking back, it was a great decision. I will never again have the opportunity to live with 30 of my closest friends. They were my family away from home. Jennifer Hitt Delta Omega-Mississippi State

The sorority living experience is not only a wonderful opportunity for fun and community, it is likely the safest living environment available on campus. Kappa Delta is constantly researching new ways to make their facilities safer. The policies and the chapter’s ability to enforce those policies create a living environment that would reassure any parents concerned about their daughter’s well-being. Sara Sterley, Director of Communications/Account Manager MJ Insurance, Inc.

There's always someone to talk to... I love it because it feels like home, and I get to live with all my sisters! Kendall Sweeney Alpha Kappa-Oregon State

A Kappa Delta house is much more than a dormitory. As house corporation president, my role is to make sure collegians have a safe, comfortable, and attractive place to call home. Having lived in the KD house during my college years, I take pride in ensuring that the house exceeds the expectations of its residents, year after year. Lisa Durrenberger, house corporation president Phi Epsilon-Colorado State

What a privilege and joy to be a Kappa Delta housemother! This is not a job; it is a life with extremely wonderful rewards of working with young people who are striving for excellence in their studies, personal growth, and daily activities. The benefits also include working with a board of true aestheticians and professional businesswomen who are devoted to this house. They set the standards of excellence for the house, themselves and the young KD women. Kitty Raney, retired house director Alpha Mu-Mississippi
