Sisterhood is something we hold close to our hearts here at the Kappa Gamma chapter of Sigma Kappa. We do various sisterhood events such as retreats, dinners, game nights, study dates, and many more.
We started off 2021 with a virtual Galentine's event partnered with Kelly from Nail's on Brown. Kelly taught us about the importance of self-care. We practiced self-care by giving ourselves manicures in breakout rooms.
The next activity we held was an ice skating day. The sisters went skating at Dayton's ice skating rank. It was a great way to spend a COVID-safe day with sisters.
This year we kicked off the Fall 2019 semester with a sisterhood tie dye day hosted by Hunter the sisterhood chair at her house in the student neighborhood.
We started 2020 off with a Valentine’s themed sisterhood event. We spent time making Valentine’s cards for sisters in our chapter as well as gerontology patients in the hospital. This was one of the first events our new members were able to attend! Being able to spend time with them was awesome and it was a great opportunity for them to start getting to know their new sisters!
Sisterhood Retreat Spring 2021
We had our first sisterhood on Zoom. The theme was "camp." Before the event, Bridget Rasure dropped off camp-themed goodie bags to every sister. The goodie bag was filled with a bandana, snacks, and bingo card. The day started off in our assigned breakout room cabins. We then heard sister talks from Nora McKinnon and Hallie Bergmann. As the afternoon progressed, we played speed dating bingo with 10 sisters in breakout rooms. The day ended with a virtual scavenger hunt with our cabins. Thanks to Bridget for making a fun sisterhood bonding day!
Sisterhood Retreat Spring 2020
The spring sisterhood retreat was a success and something that many people enjoyed more this year than they have in the past! A lot of time was given to socialize with the new members and even just to get to know sisters that we didn’t know as well. We had great talks from Sarah Pierce, Kenzie Ferguson, Reagan Ney and Mariell Thimme. All of the talks were educational and easy for members to listen to. There were great activities involved in each talk which kept members up and moving around and able to converse with the people around them.
