History

Kappa Delta, a national sorority, colonized the Eta Xi chapter on the Dartmouth campus in 2009. The Dartmouth Panhellenic Council approved the sorority on May 25, 2009. The sorority recruited its first members in the summer of 2009, and Kappa Delta held its first formal rush during the fall 2009 academic term, offering membership bids to 37 women. The Kappa Delta house at 1 Occom Ridge is due to be completed for the class of 2015 women to move in at the beginning of Fall term 2014.

Philanthropy

  • Girl Scouts provides Kappa Delta members opportunities for face-to-face volunteering. Each year, Kappa Deltas devote over 175,000 hours to working with Girl Scouts in their communities. Popular KD Girl Scout events are self-esteem workshops, campus tours, International Girls Day celebrations and anti-bullying workshops.

  • Since 1984, Kappa Delta collegiate and alumnae chapters have held Shamrock Events — local fundraisers that vary from jambalaya feeds and twister games to silent auctions and golf classics — to support the prevention of child abuse. Shamrock Events, staged by thousands of Kappa Delta women in hundreds of communities nationwide, are held throughout the year and have earned local and national media attention.

  • Every year, KD collegiate and alumnae chapters raise more than $1.5 million dollars to benefit child abuse prevention efforts
