Expansion Continues for Kappa Kappa Gamma
COLUMBUS, Ohio (March 20, 2013) - Kappa Kappa Gamma, one of the largest fraternities for women, is growing again. Wichita State University has invited Kappa to be its next National Panhellenic Conference partner on campus.
"The Women's Panhellenic Association of Wichita State University unanimously approved the recommendation for Kappa Kappa Gamma to join our Fraternity and Sorority community," says Gina Stewart,Wichita State University's Coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Life. "Our Panhellenic is thrilled that, after 55 years, we are able to grow our Panhellenic community and add a strong organization, which we know will benefit and enhance our entire Greek community and university."
A local group, Gamma Epsilon, will become affiliated with Kappa Kappa Gamma. In addition, Kappa will be going through a traditional colonization process in the fall of 2013.Implementation of a marketing and membership recruitment plan aimed at interested, non-affiliated potential new members will be kicking off soon.
Kappa's colonization process is unique, yet similar to traditional Membership Recruitment. Kappa will be looking for academically minded, driven women wanting to leave their mark on a new organization, while also adding to the Panhellenic success already established at WSU.
WSU currently has four National Panhellenic Conference groups.Kappa Kappa Gamma will be the fifth group, joining Alpha Phi, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma and Gamma Phi Beta.
The new chapter at WSU will bring Kappa Kappa Gamma's number of active collegiate chapters in North America to 141.
"It is an exciting time for women's Greek organizations as interest continues to rise at colleges and universities across the country,"says Julie Leshay, Fraternity President of Kappa Kappa Gamma. "We are thrilled we are able to support the expansion movement and Kappa is honored to have our next colony at WSU. Everyone from our leadership to our local alumnae are elated about the opportunity to support the new colony."
Located in Wichita, Kan., WSU has more than 14,000 students and is Kansas' only urban-serving research state university.
