Kappa Kappa Gamma

President's Message

My name is Sasha Heinemann, and I am the President of Kappa Kappa Gamma at University of California, Santa Barbara. As I write that sentence, I am filled with pride for the fact that I have the honor of presiding over an organization that has impacted so many aspects of my life. When first told to write this letter, I felt overwhelmed by the task, because it seems impossible to put into words just how much my membership in this organization has made me the person I am today.


Kappa is more than friendship - it’s belonging to a community that extends beyond the walls of the chapter house. It’s more than just waving as you pass by each other: 

Recognize a Kappa sitting at the library? They’ll eagerly help find an extra chair and invite you to join them. 

Cross paths with a Kappa on your way to class? They’ll walk with you even if it’s in the opposite direction of where they were headed, because catching up with a friend is worth a few extra steps. 

See a Kappa ahead of you in line to pick up coffee? They won’t hesitate to leave their spot and come meet you at the back of the line so that you can wait together. 

Kappa embodies the true essence of inclusivity and warmth, creating a space where everyone feels embraced and valued. Right from the start, you can tell that you’ve entered an atmosphere that is genuinely excited to make new connections. 

Kappa’s national philanthropy is mental health awareness, and our chapter chose to support National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). All Kappa chapters share the same overall philanthropic cause, but our chapter decided to take on an additional philanthropy inspired by  our very own Robin Babini, a member of Kappa at UCSB before she passed in 2006 from ovarian cancer. Her legacy lives on in our chapter as we raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer Circle. 


In order to fundraise for both the Ovarian Cancer Circle and National Eating Disorders Association, we hold one of our favorite annual events: Kappa Kapture the Flag. Members from all over campus come to play in this tournament, including members of Panhellenic, IFC, USFC, sports teams, and other clubs, with our chapter members acting as their coaches, referees, and cheerleaders. The joy radiating from this event comes not only from the fun of the game, but from knowing that the proceeds raised will help make a true difference toward these organizations that we care for so deeply.


My experience in Kappa has been everything I hoped for, and more. Membership in Kappa transcends your four years of undergrad, creating a network of unconditional support, mentorship, career guidance, and lifelong connections. I hope to meet you during COB recruitment this spring to personally introduce you to Kappa and let you witness firsthand what makes our sisterhood so special.
