Mission Statement

In the year 1842 the Kappa Kappa Kappa Society was founded on the beliefs of democracy, loyalty to Dartmouth, and equality of opportunity. A century and a half later, such principles still ring true as guiding virtues for the proud brothers of this organization. Democracy, because every brother deserves the opportunity to define and contribute to his experience here at Tri-Kap. Loyalty, because we stand to serve the Dartmouth community and that of the Upper-Valley through philanthropic efforts.

  • Kappa Kappa Kappa is a local fraternity founded on July 13, 1842. 

  • Currently, it is the oldest local fraternity in the nation and the second permanent Greek-letter fraternal society established at Dartmouth College.

  • Kappa Kappa Kappa was the first organization at Dartmouth College to have a freestanding fraternity building in Hanover and one of the first in the country


Tri-Kap has maintained a strong focus in giving back to the local community. Every Fall, we host a Haunted House for children and families of the Upper Valley area, and we co-sponsor multiple events with other greek organizations on campus every term. Along with larger planned philanthropic events, we also have begun to work with Hanover's Our Savior Lutheran Church and Students Fighting Hunger to provide meals for local families struggling to meet dietary needs while also raising awareness about national and global hunger-related issues​.
