About Us

Since our founding at the University of Florida in 1948, we have worked each day to uphold our motto: "Let us strive for that which is Honorable, Beautiful, and Highest." Kappa Delta inspires its members to reach their potential by offering opportunities for leadership, personal development, academic success and community service.

Sisterhood is the common tie that binds all Kappa Delta members. From the moment you run to our front lawn on Bid Day, you begin to form relationships that will last a lifetime. 

 

Being a Kappa Delta means belonging to a group of exceptional women who will always stand by you. Kappa Delta accepts its members for who they are and challenges them to develop into the women that they dream of becoming. It is the sisterhood that we share at Kappa Delta that we will cherish and remember long after our days at the University of Florida.

Words From Sisters

"Coming into KD I didn’t really know what to expect. I had no idea that this kind of friendship and support is possible with people you meet in a matter of months. Fast forward to junior year and I live in a house with 6 KDs and couldn’t imagine my life without any of them. While I know this love will last a lifetime I pray each and everyday time will slow down a bit because can’t picture my life without KD in it everyday."

Lindsey Winzeler, MC'19

"KD taught me that you don't all have to be the same to be a part of a community. We all thrive as a group of girls because we bring our own individual attitudes, style, and interests. All you really need in common is to love pizza... KD is like pizza; comes in all sizes and flavors, it brings everyone together... but most importantly, everyone loves pizza."

Isabella Arjomand, MC'15

"Funny story about my best friend. When I met her 4 years ago at UF Preview, she told me she probably wasn't going to rush and I told her I was not going to join the same sorority as my sister... Really really happy we were both wrong on that one."

Olivia Swartwood, MC'12
