Chapter History

You have to know where you’ve been to know where you are going. Kappa holds a special place in its heart for Fraternity history, but every chapter of our organization has unique beginnings of its own. Each plays a part in shaping us today. Read more about our chapters’ histories at Kappapedia.

In 1927, seven women on the Miami campus were selected by Kappa alumnae to be the nucleus of a local sorority, Lambda Phi.  In 1938, Lambda Phi’s petition to charter was accepted and the Delta Kappa Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma was formally installed that year on November 18th. Nineteen charter members were initiated with the help of actives from Rollins and Alabama. Lambda Phi alumnae had the privilege of becoming Kappas at regular initiation services over the course of the next five years.

The Delta Kappa Chapter recently celebrated its 76th year on Miami's campus with our annual Founder's Day Luncheon, welcoming both actives and chapter alumnae in the area to celebrate our chapter's history and accomplishments.
