We really only hear about Vice President Mike Pence and vice presidential hopeful Kamala Harris' political stances (for clear reasons), that it’s hard to envision them once as students, walking through campus, attending classes, and participating in college organizations, but we wanted to think back to a time before their successful public service careers. Tonight, we’re spotlighting Phi Gamma Delta of which Mike Pence is a member and Alpha Kappa Alpha of which Kamala Harris holds membership.
We recently highlighted the vast academic achievements of Ruth Bader Ginsburg including her membership to the prestigious honor society, Phi Kappa Phi, but did you know she was also part of a sorority during her collegiate years?
We often talk about the honor societies that are typically seen wearing our cords and stoles on graduation day, but did you know organizations like fraternities and sororities also give their members special hardware to wear on the big day? Today, we’re taking a look at Alpha Delta Pi -- the first recognized sorority in the United States.
