Welcome to Kappa Kappa Gamma Recruitment!
My name is Ashlyn Doremus and I have the honor to serve as the Kappa Kappa Gamma Recruitment Chair for 2018. I am so excited that you will have the opportunity to be in Aggieland this upcoming semester, there is truly nothing like it. Greek life at Texas A&M University has given me the chance to meet some incredible women. Kappa Kappa Gamma is a special place, and I am so excited to be able to share it with you through this upcoming recruitment.
Recruitment week and the weeks leading up to it are important times for our Kappa chapter at Texas A&M. Each of our members works so incredibly hard to be able to share our chapter and welcome new members. This is such a fun time for all of us because we have the opportunity to meet phenomenal Potential New Members and create a lifetime of memories together.
I am so honored to brag on the Epsilon Rho chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma, as we have had great success with Recruitment throughout the years. This past year, we had such a successful Recruitment and we were able to welcome 87 new Kappas. The countless hours of work that go into a successful year of Kappa Recruitment could not be done without the help of our alumnae. Our chapter is forever grateful for all of their dedication to Kappa well beyond their years as an active member.
Please take the time to browse our website and get an idea of who we are and why we are so proud to represent Kappa at Texas A&M University. I hope that you are able to see why I call Kappa home. Lastly, for more important dates, deadlines, and information about Texas A&M Recruitment, check out the Texas A&M University Collegiate Panhellenic Council Website: http://cpc.tamu.edu. If you have any questions about Recommendation Letters, please see the “References and Legacies” tab under Join Kappa. Also, please feel free to email me with any questions or contact your local alumni association as a resource for even more assistance in preparation for Recruitment. Recruitment is such an exciting experience and I am thrilled to get to share it with you!
