Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity
Sometimes it’s hard to say which is more compelling. Is it our 140 plus years of fraternity or the fact that we were ever founded in the first place? Our beginnings coincide with the end of the Civil War and occurred fifty years before women would receive the right to vote and hold office in America. So when six exceptional women at Monmouth College in Illinois decided to express their belief in a woman’s potential to impact the world, they had already begun the first step on the journey to do precisely that. Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded as a women’s fraternity in 1870 - years before the word “sorority” would even be introduced. We’re a women’s organization. It starts with that. But where we go from there is up to the woman. Kappa Kappa Gamma offers a member experience ranging from friendship to mentoring, from leadership to service and from campus activities to a lifetime of community involvement.
