How will Delta Kappa Delta affect my grades?
Delta Kappa Delta is built on the ideals of academia. In order to associate for Delta Kappa Delta each potential recruit must have a cumulative GPA of a 2.75. This is done so that we can be sure that Delta Kappa Delta does not interfere with our real goals to be at the University of Texas at Austin and to be successful. Aside from that each sister is required to maintain a 2.50 GPA once they cross into the sisterhood. Academics are a huge part of what we practice and as sisters, we encourage one another to be successful. Having the support from one another, we see great improvements in grades from sisters who are able to ask the rest of the sisterhood for help. Delta Kappa Delta has a reputation of producing hard working and successful sisters and with the skills you learn through association, sisters are able to learn time management, communication, and organization which allow them to be successful in the long run.
What is Delta Kappa Delta's Alcohol Policy?
Delta Kappa Delta does not associate its letters with alcohol. The philanthropy of Delta Kappa Delta is the prevention and awareness of child abuse which may stem from the use or overuse of alcohol. Therefore, any sister representing Delta Kappa Delta cannot associate its letters with alcohol. This does not restrict a sister from making their own choices at their own time, but when representing Delta Kappa Delta, we follow a zero tolerance policy.
Is Delta Kappa Delta a hazing organization?
Delta Kappa Delta is a NON-HAZING sorority. We do not partake in any forms of hazing, set forth by both the National Guidelines as well as The University of Texas' Guidelines. Thus, we follow a zero tolerance policy on hazing. The Recruitment Advisor and Recruitment Aide Advisor will make sure that this policy is upheld throughout the semester during the Association Process.

What exactly is a sorority?
A sorority is a group of girls brought together by sisterhood, common interests, and aspirations. By experiencing the dynamics of a sorority, one gains and develops close-knit bonds between individuals that are both in our comfort zones as well as outside. It is a way of life, meaning that by joining a sorority, you will have adopted a new family who will always be there regardless of the situation. After time, individuals who you call "Sister" will transcend that title and truly become a part of your family.
