Kappa Delta defines a legacy as a one whose sister, mother, grandmother (or adoptive, half sister or step-relatives of the above if a close relationship) is currently (or has passed away) a Kappa Delta in good standing.
- Due to the number of Kappa Delta legacies that participate in recruitment on some campuses, Kappa Delta chapters cannot promise an invitation to membership to all legacies as much as we would like to.
- A legacy must meet the membership requirements and standards established by each chapter on her own merit.
- On some campuses, due to the large number of women participating in recruitment and the limited number of invitations the Panhellenic affords a chapter, invitations to the first invitational round of recruitment may not be possible for all legacies. However, where Panhellenic rules and conditions allow, Kappa Delta does extend the courtesy of an invitation to the first invitational recruitment event for each legacy in order to ensure that each legacy is given due consideration for membership in light of her special relationship to Kappa Delta.
