Book People Unite from RIF and The Library of Congress

Take the Book People Unite pledge and declare your belief in the transformative power of books, especially for young minds. (You’ll also get a download of “Book People Unite” from The Roots and a zillion others.)

I got an email about this yesterday since RIF is Kappa's national philanthropy. Watch the video and take the pledge so that a whole new generation can read all the awesome books that we grew up with. 

This past weekend, I went back to Marist for the first time in TWO years. I’m advising at my former Kappa chapter now and since the chapter has more than tripled in the past four years, I had to go back and see it all for myself. 
But my biggest observation of the whole weekend was that I felt more comfortable and relaxed than in any of my previous visits. I told my mom that it was because I was far enough away and unaware of the drama but then she also reminded me that this was my first time going to visit with real stability in my life. Every other time I had seen these girls, I had been bouncing around unsure of what my next move was. But this time I actually had news about my life to report and for once felt like a grown-up instead of a confused post-grad.
I’m finally moving  from what I see as “struggling post-grad” into “legit adult” and it feels awesome.

Sometimes I worry about telling strangers or co-workers that I hang out with lots of girls from my sorority as an adult. It can come across as silly, or scary, or immature, to be someone who’s too into her sorority, especially as college days appear further and further away in the rear view window of life, and because the word “sorority” can elicit negative connotations and stereotypes.
But I’m really glad I was into mine, because those ladies are still the ones I want to spend a Sunday afternoon with, eating a potluck brunch of quiche and assorted pies, drinking mimosas & bellinis, and laughing hysterically at stories new & old, while debating whether we are “grown-ups” yet. I am so thrilled that we have such a large contingent in New York right now (and growing)! Whether you call them sisters or friends, at the very least, I am grateful that my sorority introduced me to a group of awesome people who continue to be great allies in navigating post-college life. And we are definitely having brunch again soon.

THIS THIS THIS. I’ve gotten my fair share of eyerolls when I tell people that I’m spending my Saturdays at alumni adviser training or going to my sorority bookclub, but I get a big smile on my face every time I think about the group of sisters that I have helping me navigate post-grad life in New York.

.@kappakappagamma eta pi & zeta chi chapters on 9/7/11. #kkg (Taken with instagram)

This is a moment that makes me incredibly proud. In the past year the New York Kappa alumni have revived an almost nonexistent alumni association and now we’ve been given the opportunity to assist with starting the first chapter in New York City. This is an incredibly driven group of women and I’m so proud that I get to call them my friends and learn from them.

“Life is sweet for Miley Cyrus as she films her latest movie, So Undercover, in New Orleans on Monday. The sorority-themed action comedy also stars Kelly Osbourne.”

It’s definitely Kappa themed but from the look of this photo below they’re KKZ’s not KKG’s.
