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 in Kappa's digital archives.

We love KKG!

Today, there are about 140 Kappa Kappa Gamma chapters throughout the United States and Canada, with over 250,000 members. Our chapter at Iowa State University is called the Delta Omicron chapter and we were founded in 1946 with about 170 members currently. 

Every Fall, Delta Omicron is delighted to welcome a New Member Class of around 50 girls to participate in the Kappa Kappa Gamma experience here at Iowa State University.  Beginning with a variety of new member activities to get the girls well acquainted with one another and the chapter, Kappa begins to become a part of something that is more than just a sorority. Over the next four years, these girls will have the chance to participate in philanthropic events, like Kappa Con Queso and Kakes for Kids, which raise thousands of dollars for charities near and dear to our hearts. Members will also have the ability to expand their leadership abilities and take on Chapter Council positions, become co-chairs in activities in Homecoming and Greek Week, and joining clubs on campus. We also have many social events throughout the year to get to know other chapters in the Greek Community.

The Delta Omicron chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma is a home to both Iowa State students that live in the house as well as those that live out. You can always find girls sitting in the dining room for meals made by our very own chef or getting together with study groups in the formal living room. The TV room is never empty, girls lounge on our big comfy couches for movie nights. 

After the four amazing years as a Kappa Kappa Gamma at Iowa State University are over, the experience doesn't end. Kappa Kappa Gamma has an incredibly strong alumni base. Many alumni stay as involved as possible, from becoming a chapter advisor to just stopping by every now and then to visit our members and talk about their favorite Kappa memories.
