Two women got together in 2010 with the idea to create a non-collegiate social sorority in Australia. Gathering their friends and women they thought would make a great contribution, they set about founding a sorority that would strengthen their existing friendship by adding the bond of sisterhood. Social events were planned to be the main focus of the sisterhood, but with a definite streak of philanthropy as well, Delta Kappa Nu was founded in May 2011.
Our crest is a white shield with a gold goblet above a black blazon and a pink water lily below. The blazon bears our letters Delta, Kappa and Nu, and a scroll bears our motto CHANGE ESSE VIS VIDERE.
Our motto is CHANGE ESSE VIS VIDERE - "Be the change you wish to see in the world", which was said by Mahatma
Our colours are Gold, Carnation Pink and Ebony
Our gemstone is the pink sapphire
Our flower is the pink water lily
Our pin consists of a gold Delta, filled with black enamel, bearing a gold Kappa and Nu, with diamonds in the arms of the Kappa and Nu
There are lots of important dates for Delta Kappa Nu, but some of our most important events are:
29 May - Founding Day
This day is a Celebration of our founding and is celebrated annually by all the chapters of the Sorority.
This event is held in Winter to celebrate the initiation of the Autumn class of pledges.
This event is held in Spring to celebrate the initiation of the Spring class of pledges.
This is held annually and brings as many sisters together as possible to relax and enjoy being together as a Sorority.
