Mocktails- Alcohol Safety Risk Management

 

As a fun way to promote chapter health and safety, the Kappa Tau chapter hosted a “Mocktails” event for Risk Management on September 20, 2018. Dressed to the nines, members came together and drank non-alcoholic cocktail blends as a memorable way to learn about and discuss alcohol safety. The chapter risk management chair outlined a number of important facts, data, and statistics regarding the potential risks of alcohol consumption, including how the body breaks down alcohol and how many drinks are acceptable in certain time frames. While this was a light and cheery event for members to attend, the importance of the information being covered was stressed to members and how important their health and safety was to the chapter. All in all, the Kappa Tau chapter came out being more educated on alcohol safety through a unique and interesting experience that will leave lasting impressions on members.

DZ Out at Sea Great Pretenders

 

On April 17th, the Kappa Tau chapter at Morehead State University took to Button Auditorium for their annual Great Pretenders lip sync competition to raise money for the Starkey Hearing Foundation. After hundreds of hours of practice and preparation from the devoted chapter, they had an outstanding turnout for the event, selling the most tickets for the event in chapter history. The event was themed “DZ Out at Sea” and chapter members turned Button Auditorium into a marine scene with the stage transformed into the deck of a large boat with a painted sunset banner in the background. Kappa Tau opened the event up with their own performance with members dressed up as mermaids, pirates, and lifeguards portraying The Little Mermaid, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Baywatch. The exciting performance lasted nearly ten minutes and was the culmination of an entire semester’s worth of planning, choreography, practices, and craft decorating. Organizations from across campus, both Greek and not, came to participate in the philanthropy event. After a fun-filled evening full of friendly competition, laughs, door prizes, and support of a great cause, the Kappa Tau chapter was able to raise over $5,000 to donate to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

Roots of Sisterhood

On October 28th, our new members and other chapter members journeyed to Oxford, Ohio. We set out to explore Miami University, where our original sisters founded the sisterhood that binds us all. At the start of the trip, sisters excitedly signed their names into the guest book, and searched through the names of sisters that had visited previously. Our members took an interest in the astounding accomplishments displayed of our sisters across the country and throughout time. Kappa Tua finds it important to bring new members to Chapter Headquarters to establish an understanding of the depth of our history.

Homeruns for Hearing

On November 7th, 2017, the fall pledge class of the Kappa Tau chapter put together a philanthropy event to raise money for Starkey Hearing Foundation. Despite poor weather conditions, our chapter held a successful tournament inside Laughlin Gym. Seven organizations showed up to participate in the intense competition. Approximately $200 was raised to donate to Starkey. Our new members were able to play an active role in orchestrating a philanthropy even, and thus developed an understanding of the effort and payout of such events. The chapter also participated in various philanthropy events to support other organizations on campus. New Member Philanthropy Chair, Bre McKnight, said, "Being given the opportunity to make such an impact so early into my time as a Delta Zeta has shown me the true meaning behind this sisterhood. Our chapter coming together to benefit others was an amazing feeling."

Kappa Tau Chapter hosts Kickball for a Cause to benefit The Painted Turtle camp

The Kappa Tau Chapter hosted a kickball tournament to raise money for The Painted Turtle camp. Teams met in Laughlin Gym at Morehead State University for the challenge. Kappa Tau members refereed the games and sat on the sidelines cheering on the competing teams.

In two short hours, a champion emerged and over $300 was raised for the camp that touches the lives of so many deserving children. The Kappa Tau Chapter looks forward to hosting this event again in the future.

Kappa Tau Chapter has an experience intertwined in the path of sisterhood

On October 22, 2016, two days before Founders Day, the Kappa Tau Chapter from Morehead State University in Kentucky set out on a journey to pay homage to the place where Delta Zeta began 114 years ago — Miami University.

Our visit included Delta Zeta National Headquarters and National Historical Museum in Oxford, Ohio. Stepping onto the property, our eyes were immediately drawn to the path of engraved bricks that lead to the front door of Headquarters.

The sisters of the Kappa Tau Chapter began a diligent search to find the brick that intertwined them into the path of sisterhood. Our journey continued as we walked through the front door and crossed the threshold into a world where the preservation of the ideals, principles and values of Delta Zeta can be seen from the pictures hanging on the wall to the meaningful name of each room.

We signed our names in the guest book, forever becoming part of the living history, while sisters who had visited before proudly showed their signatures.

That day, walking in the footsteps of our Founders and sisters before us, we truly learned what it means to walk in the light of the flame.
