     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.

How has joining Kappas impacted you and your career?

My experience being in Kappa Phi lambda has pushed me to explore my boundaries, challenged me to take charge, gave me an opportunity to be a leader (previous chapter president, publicity chair, recruitment chair, fundraising, etc.) Additionally, being in Kappas has given me lifelong friendships, networking opportunities, and taught me how to interact and work with a diverse group of people.



Never allow waiting to become a habit. Live your dreams and take risks. I encourage all my sisters at UIUC Kappa Phi Lambda to follow their dreams!

"Find your niche, be true to yourself, be confident, and don't let any obstacles stop you from your goals!"

Advice as an Alumna

Chapter Advisors



about our chapter advisors below

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

Previous Positions as an Active: 

President, Vice President External, Fundraising




Why did you decide to become a chapter advisor?

Although I graduated, I still wanted to contribute to the sisterhood and strengthen the chapter by being a resource for sisters and the chair holders. I felt that becoming chapter advisor would be an amazing opportunity to use the knowledge and skills I've gained from being active and from taking on positions during my undergrad. 

What are your goals as chapter advisor?

Ultimately, I want to help the sisters improve themselves and their relationships with one another, whether that be giving advice or just answering any questions they have. I truly believe that strengthening the sisterhood starts with empowering the sisters and giving them the tools to do so. 


Favorite Memory as a Kappa:

There are definitely a lot to choose from, but one of them would be picking up my little, Dani. The experience of picking her up and seeing her being revealed to the greek community made me feel so much pride and joy in knowing that she was going to do amazing things for Kappas. I would also say that another memory was going through the process and crossing with my line sisters. I loved every moment I spent with them, and I wouldn't be where I am today without them!
