   The International Sociology Honor Society, Alpha Kappa Delta, has been re-established on the West Chester University Campus. Alpha Kappa Delta, founded in 1920 by University of Southern California sociologist Dr. Emory Bogardus, is built around scholarship and fellowship. 

  AKD or Anthropos, Kathamanthano, and Daikaneo, translates into, “To investigate humanity for the purpose of service.”

  The return of Alpha Kappa Delta to the WCU provides Sociology majors/minors with an organization designed for them. A chance to enhance their knowledge, provide service, and meet people invested in the same interests. 

   This organization also wants to provide opportunities and knowledge to all majors. Our first step is to host a graduate application workshop on Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in Old Library. 

  This workshop will present the do’s and don’ts of graduate applications, the process, the key to deciding on a program, and much more.  

   Sociology major/minor students and those interested in this organization or would like more information on the graduate workshop, contact the secretary Kaitlyn Drabb  at or the President Stephanie Needles at

    Kaitlyn Drabb is a fourth -year student majoring in sociology and history. She can be reached at
