ALUMNAE

     Despite graduating and continuing on in their journey, our alumnae are still very much part of the sisterhood. Whether it be using the skills they've gained through their past positions, continuing to give back to their communities, or keeping in touch with sisters and their lineage, alumnae continue to represent the pillars and values of Kappa Phi Lambda. Being a part of Kappas means a lifetime of friendship, and our alumnae are the greatest example of that! 

     As the history and legacy of Psi Chapter, the active house wants to thank each and every sister that contributed to the growth of our chapter and the bonds that have created this sisterhood. 

Watch the video below to hear why our alumnae joined this sisterhood.

How has joining Kappas impacted you and your career?

Kappas helped me with how to balance work life & personal life balance, allowed me to connect with sisters from various locations that ended up working in my profession as an RN. It's given me leadership positions and enabled me to be confident and come out of my shell. Kappas has given me an everlasting sisterhood and a home away from home that even 10 years has passed as a KPL sister, I've still maintained some of the closest relationships with my Kappa sisters.

What was your favorite thing about being a part of Kappas?

The long night, deep and intimate conversations, mutual respect and understanding from my sisters and the forever sisterhood.

Advice as an Alumna

about our chapter advisors below

Chapter Advisors

Chapter Advisors are an extremely important asset to a chapter’s success and provide guidance and support to the chapter and our chairholders. It is important that advisors foster the development of the chapter as a whole as well as individual chairholders and members. An advisor should be familiar with the policies and regulations of the chapter, our national organization, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Chapter Advisors:

  • Provide guidance and support to the chapter and chairholders of operation

  • Foster development of the chapter and individual members

  • Discuss important chapter issues with chapter’s executive board and minor board

  • Be knowledgeable about policies, regulations and procedures of that chapter

  • Attend chapter meetings when needed or as expected

  • Serve as a positive role model to chapter members

  • Respond to questions and help from members in a timely manner

ERIKA *LOCKET* SALIGAN  │  INCOMING CHAPTER ADVISOR

Why did you decide to become a chapter advisor?

I was initially interested in becoming a part of National Board but the time commitment is a lot for me at the moment. After learning about the chapter advisor role when Caryn reached out to me, I was excited because I thought it was a perfect way to still be involved with Kappas after graduation and I love serving as a mentor.

What are your goals as chapter advisor?

In prior years, chapter advisors were not as active in helping with the operations of the chapter. My long term goal is to solidify the role of chapter advisors with feedback from sisters and perhaps incorporate it in the bylaws. I would also like to form a committee for Psi Chapter’s 15th anniversary in fall 2021 by the end of this academic year. I’m excited to connect active sisters with our alumnae for this milestone. 

Favorite Memory as a Kappa:

My favorite memory is picking up my Little Love Maze! The process of becoming a Big Sis is so exciting and quite a privilege, therefore it is something I’ll always be grateful for.

OUTGOING CHAPTER ADVISOR  │  CARYN *BENEVOLENCE* MOY

Why did you decide to become a chapter advisor?

 I wanted to serve as a support system for sisters beyond college and encourage sisters to continuously strive to strengthen the sisterhood. 

What are your goals as chapter advisor?

To facilitate a sisterhood where each member grows as an individual and as a team member. I want every person to feel valued and supported by one another in the organization. I hope to refocus our core values in relation to the sisterhood and to guide sisters in how to foster stronger relationships.

Favorite Memory as a Kappa:

I have two favorite memories! My first favorite memory was when my line sisters and I flew to Austin, TX for our neo retreat. It was one of the first times connecting with each other beyond the process. My second favorite memory was a year after I graduated - the senior send off during banquet for the last few of my line sisters. That night, Chelsea and I bawled our eyes out during their senior send off. It made me realize how much we had gone through together as line sisters and how quickly college went by and how much being a part of Kappas meant to me.
