Today, February 7, is one of the most important days in aKDPhi history. It is the day we were founded. This day marks 27 years of women coming together for the never ending love and friendship that this organization gives. It’s been 27 years of gorgeous, beautiful, strong women proving that alpha Kappa Delta Phi is truly a place to call home.
Without our founders, none of this would even exist. So thank you to our fourteen founding sisters at the University of California, Berkeley. You have truly made your mark in history, and we will never stop celebrating the sisterhood that you created.
In light of this joyous occasion, our Alpha Delta chapter is holding a number of events. To show our pride, we had our set performance at Turlington Plaza just this past noon time. Yet, there are more events in store.
Tonight at 6:30 in the Reitz Union Room G310, we will be holding our very first Cultural Panel. Put on by Candice Luc, from the Mu Class, the panel is a forum for questions to be asked to our very own sisters about their story and how their life has been as Asian American women. Come check them out and ask your own questions at our Untold Stories of Asian American Women: The Sisters of aKDPhi.
Furthermore, we have our 2nd annual aKDPhi Challenge this Friday. People from the UF community get to compete in an amiable fitness test in an attempt to win a prize! This event is one our most fun ones yet. Come out to Flavet Field, Friday (February 10) at 6pm to see if you measure up and can win first place! If you are interested, you can fill out the team registration form. Note that there must be at least one girl on each team.

Roselle Derequito recently passed this past month, and our chapter held a candlelight vigil to commemorate her influence at the University of Florida and greater community. The candlelight vigil was on January 13th, 2017. Many sisters as well as friends and loved ones came out to support and honor Roselle.
Roselle Derequito was a sister of the Gamma Class, crossed Fall 2010, of alpha Kappa Delta Phi. She held numerous positions within our chapter, ranging from Reveal Coordinator to Academic Chair, and held an even greater influence in our community through her various involvements in the Filipino Student Association, Red Cross Association, and more.
More so, she was a sister who touched the lives of many. She never stopped showing how kind she was and how beautiful her soul really was. She impacted so many lives and our chapter in so many ways. Her passion for aKDPhi and others was endless. Our love for her will last forever. Thank you for everything, Roselle.
See you later, Roselle.
You will always be in our hearts.
