On Saturday April 27, Theta Delta Chi, Sigma Pi, Alpha Phi Alpha, and alpha KappaDelta Phi hosted a dodge-ball tournament, “DodgeBrawl,” at the SERF to help raise money for Autism Speaks U. Autism Speaks’ mission is to fund global biomedical research on the causes, prevention and treatments for autism. Additionally, they raise public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society, as well as bring hope to all who deal with the hardships of the disorder.

Our Place On Campus

Posted on Sep 5, 2013 in

alpha Kappa Delta Phi at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was chartered in May of 2008 as the first, and currently only, Asian-interest sorority in Wisconsin. The existence of our chapter marks progress on campus and in the state in representing the Asian/Asian-American woman voice. We hope to continue that progress with the work that we do as an organization and as accomplished individuals. Upon our chapter’s chartering, we joined the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), one of the four Greek councils on campus. The Multicultural Greek Council is catered specifically for those Greek-letter organizations that have a cultural emphasis and currently consists of Lambda Theta Phi, Lambda Theta Alpha, Sigma Lambda Beta, Kappa Delta Chi, Omega Delta Phi, alpha Kappa Delta Phi, Sigma Lambda Gamma, Gamma Alpha Omega, Alpha Pi Omega, Chi Sigma Tau, and Chi Upsilon Sigma. Our chapter prides itself on working closely with the Greek community, the Asian/Asian-American community, and the woman-identified community on campus and in the Madison area. We are dedicated to empowering woman-identified individuals of all heritages to resist all forms of oppression by creating spaces for dialogue, encouraging self-expression, and aiming to be a support system for undergraduates to succeed in the personal and professional goals. Though we are Asian-interest, we are not Asian-exclusive and  we celebrate the diversity of the backgrounds of all the members of our sorority.
