Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. is celebrating 30 years of sisterhood nationwide – 14 of them at Cal State Dominguez Hills — this spring.
Four women founded the sorority on April 6, 1987 at Texas Tech University. Twelve women founded the CSUDH chapter on March 30, 2003.
The CSUDH chapter will host its annual banquet April 7 at the Carson Community Center to celebrate their 14 year anniversary.
The banquet will be underwater-themed and require formal attire. Awards will be given to sisters who have done outstanding work both on- and off-campus, including recognition for academics, community service involvement and outstanding executive board service.
Jackie Ramirez, vice president of the Alpha Gamma chapter of the sorority, is the host of the banquet.
She encourages students to come out and support the event.
“This is the third year we’re having the banquet at the Carson Community Center, and we’re hoping to max out [the capacity],” Ramirez said. “This banquet is really focused on recognizing sisters who have done outstanding in their position, the most supportive, and the alumni who have been there for us.”
With 26 members, Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. is one of the biggest sororities on campus.
Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. participates in various community service activities, such as breast cancer walks and preparing and providing food to the homeless on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles.
On campus, the sorority participates in as many campus activities as it can including campus cleanup and also volunteers for various events such as career fairs.
“We try to be there to support everybody; other sororities or fraternities, clubs or organizations, or anyone else getting involved in extracurricular activities,” Ramirez said.
Tickets are on sale for $55. They go up to $65 in the two weeks before the banquet. Information is available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/961598940626585
