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 in Kappa's digital archives.
The Zeta Beta chapter at Lafayette started as a regional sorority called Gamma Tau Delta. Gamma Tau Delta, founded in 1978, was on Lafayette's only sororities for two years. Eventually, GTD preferenced Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Zeta Beta was installed in 1980. One of six sororities on campus, KKG prides itself on its Mission Statement: "Kappa Kappa Gamma is an organization of women, which seeks for every member throughout her life bonds of friendship, mutual support, opportunities for self-growth, respect for intellectual development, and an understanding of and an allegiance to positive ethical principles." We are the oldest nationally recognized sorority remaining Lafayette's on campus! We occupy Lerch House, on March Field. Even though only 34 sisters live in the three-story building, we all consider it a home away from home.
