Kappa Delta sorority has been partnering with the local Girl Scout community for many years and each year they offer a campus tour for girls looking to head to college in their future. The sorority would be leading the tours after splitting the girl scout troops into groups. 

The tour can also be structured to fit a few different badge opportunities.

Independence badge - Between the Kappa Delta Sisters and the Girl Scouts the groups would be helping each other feel confident, looking forward to the future, planning for the future, and the girls ask questions about college and the future and show up to the event prepared to gage in an activity with the older girls. 

My Best Self - The college students would be discussing how they take care of themselves at school on their own while pointing out student health center, dining hall options, the gym, academic options and resources in the tour. 

On my own - Each Kappa Delta girl will explain how they are living, where they eat, when they do homework, and what extra curricular they do for fun. The troop would then tell the older girls what they think about the living situations and how they would want to live and what would be the best plan for them. 

Interested troops should email Morgan Furlong at mfurlon2@villanova.edu
