The Ladies of Upsilon Kappa Delta began as a small but determined group. In the Fall of 1993 thirteen young Ladies sought to establish multicultural sorority. Upsilon Kappa Delta was officially established on December 10, 1993 at California State University, Chico.
Our goal was and will continue to be, to provide Chico State with an example of the ideal Multicultural Sorority. In order to understand the importance of this goal, one must understand the importance of multi-cultural awareness. Our definition reads as follows. "Multi-culturalism is an appreciation of the different cultures in our sorority and around us; an acknowledgment of the different values and equality of diverse groups."
We are based on Academics, Community service and Sisterhood. Our sorority offers an atmosphere that is conducive to learning. We encourage academic learning by implementing certain amount of study hours. Without a decent education, we would not be here today. We try to educate ourselves as well as others in the community by making ourselves and others aware of issues that concern the community and by offering our services in an effort to help make the community we live in a better one. We are involved with various campus events.
Last but not least, is the Sisterhood aspect of being a sister of UKD. As a sister of Upsilon Kappa Delta you can always count on finding someone who will stick by your side through thick and thin. Our motto "A Sisterhood 2 Tight 2 Break" says it all. By the same token,a sister must dedicate her heart and her soul to our letters and the values for which those letters stand.
The Ladies of Upsilon Kappa Delta feel that all of these characteristics combined will allow our sisters to have the promising future each and every one of us deserve.
