To celebrate LSU's 100th Homecoming, the Delta Kappa chapter 'rocked and rolled' all last week while participating in many fun and exciting events. Flag football started off the week and Theta received a 3rd place finish! Theta also participated in CANapalooza. CANapalooza was an event that supported the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Each team had to supply their own food cans and build something creative out of the cans. After judging the winners, the cans were then donated to the food bank. With over 800 cans, Theta came in 2nd place with their Pentagon structure! Kappa Alpha Theta also received 2nd place in the banner competition! The lawn decorations and the parade closed out the week with a '100 Years and Still Rocking' theme. Special thanks to Caitlin Watzke for doing an amazing job with homecoming!

Discovery Day '09

On October 5-9, the theta house was filled with lots of surprises and excitement as the girls of the Delta Kappa chapter participated in Discovery week. Discovery week is a week when all the new members get presents each day from their sorority big sister. Some of these gifts consisted of candy, beta fish "theta betas", picture frames, and many other things. Some girls even decorated their "little's" car. Friday was the big reveal and all the new member were filled with anticipation as to whom their big sis was. Each big sis decorated a pair of shoes, one for them, and one for their little. After the littles received their shoe, all the bigs got together in one room and hid behind banners along the wall, only revealing their feet. When all the littles walked in the room, all the bigs lifted up the banners at the same time to reveal who they were. It was a great moment for all the families in the chapter!

Watermelon Bust '09

Every fall, girls from each sorority come to the parade grounds at LSU to participate in an event that consists of games and tons of watermelons. This event is called Watermelon Bust and it is an annual philanthropic event hosted by Lambda Chi Alpha. This year, two sororities were paired to a different station and each station consisted of different games such as slip and slide, tug-o-war, etc. It wasn't long until people stop playing the games and started throwing pieces of watermelon at one another.

And the award goes to...

On September 18, the Delta Kappa chapter hosted a GRUB (Girls Rounding Up Boys) for the all the members and their dates. The theme was "It Used to be Cool" and there were many creative costumes from Toy Story characters to Power Rangers. The most creative costumes of the night were Beenie Babies, worn by Lauren Berg and Mia Livaccari. Thanks to all of exec and the RM team who helped make the night a night to remember!

Recruitment Week

This year, hundreds of girls from all over the nation, came down to LSU for sorority recruitment. It started on August 16 and ended on the 22nd. This week consisted of 4 different rounds (Ice Water, Philanthropy,
Skit, and Preference) and ended with Bid day. Celeste Albares, an active member, said “Recruitment week can be stressful, but we try our best to make it fun, and I think we did just that. I had lots of fun during recruitment, especially on bid day with our ‘Mi Casa es su Casa’ theme.”

When Bid day came around and the Delta Kappa chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta saw their new member class, they were so excited and couldn’t have been more pleased. All the active members had worked so hard on getting a great group of girls and that’s exactly what they had achieved.

Thanks to ERB, the ELCs, and all the alumnae that helped!

Theta Travelers

A 10 hour plane ride, 5 movies and 6 naps later, two members of the Delta Kappa chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta finally made it to Europe! Theta sisters, Lindsey Ratcliff and Laura Chan traveled for thirty days to six amazing cities across Europe: Amsterdam, Netherlands; Paris, France; London, England; Edinburgh, Scotland; Isle of Skye, Scotland; and Dublin, Ireland. Their days were packed with plenty of sightseeing and learning about different cultures, all the while studying public relations and British media. Lindsey and Laura found the “I Amsterdam” monument, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, visited Versailles, and went to Stonehenge. They also saw where the Romans bathed, toured the BBC, made their way through Oxford, played in the Scottish Highlands, and even met the very infamous character of the unofficial song of Ireland, Molly Malone! Those are only a few of the adventures these two had on their trip.

Laura and Lindsey both agree that this trip was one major milestone in their lives. They met many different people, ranging from cast members of the Peter Pan play in Kensington Gardens in London to members of British Parliament to backpackers from all over the world. Not only did they meet amazing people and partake on many adventures, they were able to venture this new world together. According to Laura, “Because Ratcliff was with me on the trip it made going to all of these new places and meeting all these Europeans so much easier.” Lindsey also said, “Not only did I get to travel across Europe and experience different cultures with Laura, but I also made some really great friends along the way!”
