“Nos Sumus Fortes Stare”: Together we stand stronger.
Since 2014, Zeta Kappa Rho has aimed to become a safe haven for students. With one of our founders stating all those that had "an open mind and pure heart are accepted here". Since then we have advocated for change on campus and in nearby community to create a safer environment. Particularly in 2019-2021, our 2020 President - Emma lead advocacy for consent lessons, stricter anti-spiking policies as well as volunteering with Forth Valley Rape Crisis to tackle Gender Based Violence.
In 2022 we thrive to continue this work against Gender Based Violence by fundraising for Forth Valley Rape Crisis, with over £500 raised so far through our sponsored Dumyat walk, fundraising stalls and Halloween Disco night.
Our average meetings range from charity work, friendship bonding, trips to cities including an end of year retreat to club nights. Our society is a great way to meet lovely people, fundraise and volunteer as well as boost your skills and CV.
Zeta Kappa Rho’s three key values are:
Zeta Kappa Rho provides a supportive and safe space for anyone seeking a sense of sisterhood. Our social coordinator(s) are in charge of planning social events every two weeks for our members to relax during the semester and have the ability to get to know each other more. Previous socials have included a: Murder Mystery Night, Galantine’s Event, City Trips, and more. Zeta Kappa Rho has an informal chat where our current and past members can reach out for advice, plan lunch dates, drinks, or just to send funny memes. Friendships that are made throughout your time at Zeta Kappa Rho will continue beyond university with the help of our Alumni chapter. The Alumni chapter consists of all the members that have previously graduated.
At the beginning of the Autumn semester the members of Zeta Kappa Rho choose a charity to fundraise and support throughout the academic year. We also encourage members to participate in five hours of volunteering each academic year. This can be at a place of your choosing but out Philanthropy Officers will have a list of recommendations if you need help.
This past year Zeta Kappa Rho has done outstanding work within the community. We as a society were able to raise £1,632 for Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre and provided educational resources regarding sexual violence to Stirling students in the form of seminars. These seminars included: Supporting Survivors and Looking After Yourself, Responding to Disclosures, and Consent. Each seminar had two slots over the course of three days. Zeta Kappa Rho received recognition from both the community and student union.
Zeta Kappa Rho has also fundraised for Movember the past year 20/21 and we were able to raise £511. Our members pledged to complete thirty squats a day for thirty days. For an event called, "Work your butts to save those nuts".
Zeta Kappa Rho provides a supportive network so our members can excel in their education. We encourage our members to advise and support each other in their studies. This can be through study groups, messaging, or video chats. We will provide a resource to make it easier to find members doing similar classes in order to receive more tailored support.
Our volunteer scheme can provide the opportunity to gain some experience working in an area suited to you and your future career while also helping the community. Zeta Kappa Rho also encourages our members to work on self development and improving employability skills. Such as teamwork, organization, communication, and time management. Zeta Kappa Rho will provide opportunities throughout the year to support members in developing these skills.
