ALPHA KAPPA DELTA PHI

Welcome

House Spring 2014

Welcome to the University of California, San Diego's first Asian-interest sorority. Alpha Kappa Delta Phi was first founded at UC Berkeley in 1990. In 1992, it was established at UCSD and since then has spread nationwide with over 48 chapters at different universities. aKDPhi strives to promote sisterhood, scholarhip, leadership and Asian-American awareness in the University and community. Within this website, you will be able to catch a glimpse of a sorority that gives support and encouragement to those we hold dearest to our hearts... our SISTERS.

June 2014: Senior Banquet & More!

Senior Banquet
On June 8th, 2014, the chapter came together as a whole to celebrate our graduating seniors. Affectionate emotions were bountiful as little sisters wished their big sisters the best of luck on their future endeavors. We know our seniors are going to go far!

The house also had a successful lei fundraiser as well as an active sisterhood event in learning a choreographed dance from UCSD's Ascension.

May 2014: Derby Days & Formals & Mental Health Awareness Month

Derby
Derby Days
Exciting news! This year, UCSD alpha Kappa Delta Phi and UCSD Kappa Zeta Phi are collaborating as a team to compete in Derby Days. The team that raises the most money for cancer research and treatment wins! Help eradicate cancer and help us win Derby Days by making a tax-deductible donation towards the Huntsman Cancer Foundation (link below).
According to the American Cancer Society, 1,665,540 Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Cancer affects, hurts, and takes away the people that we love: children, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, and co-workers. Every year, UCSD Sigma Chi hosts Derby Days, a week-long event that brings the spirit of competition to fundraise for cancer research and treatment. All money raised will go towards the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. Help us not only win the Derby Days competition, but also help the Huntsman Cancer Institute decrease this statistic and increase the amount time people world-wide can spend with their loved ones.
The Huntsman Cancer Foundation is a non-profit charity that donates money towards the Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). This year, HCI will provide 100,000 highly specialized cancer treatments to people from the Intermountain West, the United States, and beyond. They also offer the only Phase I clinical program (often considered a cancer patient's last and best hope) of any clinical facility located between Denver and San Francisco. HCI is #1 in genetic research worldwide, having found more genetic mutations responsible for heritable cancer than any other site in the world. These advancements mean a better understanding of cancer, which creates better treatment, and that ultimately means being closer to finding a cure to cancer and saving more lives.

Mental Health Awareness Month! MentalMay is Mental Health Awareness Month!
Nationwide, aKDPhis are signing the pledge to increase Mental Health Awareness and decrease associated stigma. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, tens of millions are affected each year, and only a small fraction of those affected seek help. Other studies suggest that Asian-American, Pacific Islander youths have the highest rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide, possibly as a result of generational differences and conflict regarding family values and beliefs, but are less likely to use mental health resources when compared to the general population. As a collegiate organization, we strive to improve mental health awareness in our university, but as an Asian-American interest society, we also aim to bring mental health as a topic of conversation and safeguard mental health in the larger Asian-American community. Join us for our open event May 19th 8:30PM for a stress reducing workshop and to continue this discussion on mental health in a safe space - all are welcome! More details on the event to come!
