Come out and meet our sisters to see if our sorority is for you! You can come by yourself or with friends, and join multiple activities with us with no fees and no obligation to join.
For Spring 2021, we plan to continue online-only recruitment and new member process for the safety of ourselves and others.
Recruitment has concluded for this semester. Stay tuned for Fall 2021 if you are interested in rushing!
Filling out our semesterly interest form prior to recruitment can help sisters reach out to you for any questions you have and get to know you better!
The Spring 2021 Recruitment interest form is now closed.
Make sure you're eligible by being an undergraduate student of UMD, have at least 12 credits (AB/IB courses accepted), and a minimum GPA of 2.7.
You also must attend enough required recruitment events to be considered eligible for the final invite-only recruitment events and the possibility to receive a bid.
Spring 2021 Recruitment
This semester from February 1 to February 10, we held our virtual recruitment: "Developing with aKDPhi". Read all about our events in the post below.
What is recruitment?
Recruitment is a two week period where people interested in joining aKDPhi can come out to learn more about our sisterhood. You'll have a chance to meet the sisters in a fun and casual environment! All events are completely free of charge with no obligation to attend, come and find out what we're all about.
Do I have to be Asian to join?
Absolutely not! aKDPhi is an Asian-interest sorority, not Asian-exclusive, and we welcome girls from all different racial and ethnic backgrounds as we promote cultural awareness.
Am I obligated to join if I attend recruitment?
No, recruitment is non-binding and does not mean you're obligated to join. It's a time for you to express interest and see if aKDPhi is the sorority for you.
Do I have to dress in a certain attire?
Nope! Recruitment is casual, so feel free to arrive however you want as long as you are comfortable.
What are the benefits of joining aKDPhi?
Our sorority can enrich the undergraduate experience of sisters by connecting you to our social and professional network, experience personal growth with a diverse group of women, provide you leadership roles, having a sisterhood that will last a lifetime, and so much more. Each member has their own #WhyaKDPhi story on why they joined and what they love about being a sister!
How can I balance school, aKDPhi, and my other extracurriculars?
While we have plenty of responsibilities and leadership opportunities available for our sorority, we stress the importance of academic excellence and the personal development of our sisters. We have cabinet positions such as Academic Chair, Wellness Chair, and COVID-19 Chair that are dedicated to provide support, resources, and organization for our chapter to improve the wellbeing and time-management skills of sisters.
