Letter From Our President
Welcome to our official website!
Thank you for visiting the online home of Furman KKG! I hope that by exploring our page, you will gain a better understanding of what it means to be a member of the Eta Alpha chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. My name is Jessica, and I am serving as the 2018 President.
A little bit about myself - I am a senior sociology and elementary education major from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Outside of Kappa, I am a certified sailing instructor and spend my summers coaching sailing in Michigan. Before serving as Chapter President, I was the Membership Chair for the 2017 year and coordinated 2018 Formal Recruitment.
On a spring day in 1870, six young women marched into the chapter of Monmouth College wearing golden keys in their hair. These keys, which remain our badge today, symbolized their newly founded sisterhood, one dedicated to scholarship, loyalty, and friendship.
Our motto is, “Dream Boldly. Live Fully." This represents the aspirations of our fraternity leaders, who worked towards greater opportunities for modern women. Kappa Kappa Gamma serves our community through our national philanthropy, Reading is Fundamental, which is an organization dedicated to providing all children with the tools they need to succeed and read proficiently.
Kappa Kappa Gamma has always offered me a sense of home, especially being so far away from my family in Oklahoma. Beyond this, Kappa has also helped to guide and build me into the leader I am today. It has shaped me into a better person, a better woman, and a better sister. Through Kappa, I have had countless opportunities to travel and meet other sisters that share the same ideals and values; through these experiences, I have learned how very large and powerful our sisterhood truly is.
Kappa Kappa Gamma is an organization made up of strong, bold, intelligent, unique women, who bring their diverse perspectives and passions to everything they do, inside and outside of our sisterhood. I hope that your experience in Greek life at Furman brings you the friendships, opportunities, and fond memories it has brought me.
If you ever have any questions about Kappa or recruitment here at Furman, do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to getting to know you, and I wish you a successful first year and a successful recruitment in 2019!
