Rebekah – Wheaton College
I heard about MuKappa from my mom and I wanted to look for colleges that had MuKappa. It wasn’t a deal breaker for colleges, but it was a big win if a college had a MuKappa chapter. So, when I got to Wheaton it was a big appeal for me that they had a strong MuKappa chapter. I ended up getting involved my freshman year with the worship team in MuKappa, and now I’m the worship leader in my sophomore year. I’m really thankful that I got involved. It’s been a real place of belonging for me, both as a leader and as a participant. There weren’t many places I felt like I belonged during my freshman year at Wheaton. So, getting together weekly with other MKs and rehearsing for worship or going to Sunday night dinners, that consistency was really beneficial for me. And now being on cabinet has been actually really good for me, too, because it’s a really great opportunity not just to lead others, who are like you and help them form relationships as they transition into Wheaton, but our cabinet has been a really safe place for me and a place where I feel like I am known. I’m myself, I am trusted, and I trust others. I think MuKappa is a really great resource and I’m thankful that it’s there.
