Kappa Kappa Gamma Continues to grow
COLUMBUS, Ohio (June 27, 2013) — Kappa Kappa Gamma, one of the largest fraternities for women, is preparing for another new collegiate chapter. Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Ill., has invited Kappa to be its next National Panhellenic Conference partner on campus.
Kappa Kappa Gamma will implement a traditional colonization program in the fall of 2013. A marketing and membership-recruitment plan aimed at interested non-affiliated potential new members will be kicking off soon.
Kappa’s colonization process, while similar to traditional membership recruitment, gives interested young women the opportunity to learn everything they need to know about becoming charter members. Through special events on campus and interviews with area alumnae, Kappa will be looking for inspired, academically minded women wanting to leave their mark on a new organization.
Elmhurst College, located 20 miles west of Chicago, has three National Panhellenic Conference groups, making Kappa the fourth, joining Alpha Phi, Phi Mu and Sigma Kappa.
“The Fraternity is honored to have been invited by Elmhurst College to colonize a Kappa chapter on its campus,” says Julie Leshay, Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity President. “Elmhurst College prepares its students for success by emphasizing the core values of intellectual excellence, community, social responsibility, stewardship and faith, and Kappa’s mission and purpose are compatible with these goals in every way.”
