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.

Nothing is better than KKG!

Today, there are approximately 140 Kappa Kappa Gamma chapters throughout the United States and Canada, with over 250,000 members. Our chapter at the University of Southern California is called the Delta Tau Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. It was founded November 7, 1947 and celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2007. Delta Tau's total number of active members and new members is approximately 240.

Every Fall, Delta Tau is thrilled to welcome a new member class of around 75 girls to participate in the Kappa Kappa Gamma experience at USC. Beginning with a variety of new member activities to get the girls well acquainted with one another and the chapter, Kappas begin 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 Kickball and Sigma Chi Derby Days, which raise thousands of dollars for charity. They will have the ability to expand their leadership abilities and take on Chapter Council positions or participate in leadership events like Order of Omega. At Delta Tau they will have the time of their lives experiencing unique social events such as Kappa Krush and Kappa Kabana.

The Delta Tau Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma is a home to both USC 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 for study hours. The TV room is never empty, girls lounge on our big comfy couches for new episodes of The Bachelor and Game of Thrones or to watch a movie. 

And after the four wonderful years as a Kappa Kappa Gamma at the University of Southern California 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 say hi! “Kappa is women helping women in their individual, academic and professional lives.”
