KKG and the Zeta Lambda Chapter
a little bit about us..
Kappa Kappa Gamma is an organization of women that promotes friendship, mutual support, opportunities for self-growth, respect for intellectual development, and an understanding of and an allegiance to positive ethical principles. Kappa was founded October 13, 1870, at Monmouth College, in Monmouth, Illinois. We are a women's fraternity – since the word sorority was not coined until after our founding.
Our symbols are the owl, the key, and the fleur de lis. The owl is the bird of wisdom. Our badge, the golden key is worn strictly as an emblem of membership only by initiated members. The fleur-de-lis was chosen as the Fraternity flower because of its general dignity, stateliness and grace, and because it combines light blue and dark blue, our Fraternity colors, into one flower.
W&J is home to the Zeta Lambda Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma . We were granted our charter in April 1984. Since then we have initiated over 500 members and we now hold the ranking of largest sorority on campus with the 2nd highest average GPA.
Every spring we host a philanthropy event called Catch the Cure, which is a softball tournament to which we invite the whole campus to participate. The proceeds go to the Susan G. Kohman Foundation and breast cancer research.
On a weekly basis we have chapter meetings where we gather to keep everyone aware of current matters and discuss upcoming events. On a monthly basis we have sister only events. These events are different activities each month and they are planned with the intention of tightening the bonds between sisters.
