Kappa Kappa Gamma is Making History at Georgetown
COLUMBUS, Ohio (August 14, 2013) —Kappa Kappa Gamma will be the first National Panhellenic Conference organization to establish a colony at Georgetown in Washington D.C. An interest group of 42 women will soon call the new chapter at Georgetown home, having secured the proper steps to approach NPC and Kappa.
“The interested women at Georgetown share a desire to have a community with their female peers,” said Julie Leshay, Fraternity President. “The world is more connected than ever, but that hasn’t changed the foundation of true relationships. Kappa Kappa Gamma creates a supportive environment for women who want to be the best they can be. We are thrilled to welcome the interested women at Georgetown into Kappa, and to provide them with an infrastructure to support their aspirations.”
The interested women at Georgetown share in Kappa’s excitement.
“Kappa Kappa Gamma's strong national reputation plus their academic and social support network, philanthropy and connections through friendships are the main reasons we looked into being affiliated with a national organization,” said Carrie Cosgrove, one of the interested women at Georgetown. “Kappa Kappa Gamma immediately stood out as an organization of similarly strong, independent and ambitious women looking to make a difference in the world around them.”
Kappa representatives will be at Georgetown the weekend of Aug. 31. The new member program will begin on Sept. 1 and culminate with Installation the weekend of Oct. 25–26, 2013.
The Georgetown chapter will be Kappa’s ninth in its province that includes: George Washington, Johns Hopkins, Richmond, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Washington and Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary.
