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
"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, PC'12
"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, PC'15
"Going into recruitment I wanted to join an organization that would positively impact my life and help mold me into a woman of grace. I have always been a very confident, independent and kind person. My Christian values, strong work ethic and morals shape the way I carry myself. However, those you choose to surround yourself with often impact your character. Recruitment is a time to learn about yourself, what is important to you and focus on who you want to become as you grow older. My desire to be part of a wholesome organization led me straight to Kappa Delta. For three years Kappa Delta has been home to me and many other amazing women. As a new member of Kappa Delta, I was lead by strong women who set the bar extremely high in terms of individual character, self-conduct and maturity. As an incoming senior, now I get the opportunity to help positively influence and guide our younger members. It is the greatest feeling in the world to be a part of something you stand for and believe in. I am thankful for role Kappa Delta has played in shaping my character, and I am honored to call myself a KD!"
