Our Story, Go Kappa
Allyson Lazarre | Why Kappa
When I came to Northeastern, I knew Greek Life was something I wanted to be a part of, but going through Recruitment I felt very uncomfortable. I was alone, had no friends, and felt different being a woman of color.
I know that no matter what someone will always be there for me. I am so beyond lucky that I’ve found a place that I can call home.
When I walked into Kappa and looked around the room I saw other women of different shades, shapes and sizes but no one who really looked like me. I was so nervous but every night that I came back I couldn’t help feeling like this was where I was supposed to be. Every woman that I spoke to made me feel so at ease, like I’d known them forever. I remember bid day and seeing the excitement on their faces and couldn’t believe they were happy just to have me. In such a short amount of time, Kappa has already given me so much. I’ve learned that despite our differing physical appearances, we’re all alike in so many different ways. I know that no matter what someone will always be there for me. I am so beyond lucky that I’ve found a place that I can call home. – Allyson Lazarre, Northeastern
