Kappa to Rejoin the Ohio state university's greek-letter community
COLUMBUS, Ohio (May 25, 2017) – Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity is pleased to announce the re-establishment of our chapter at The Ohio State University beginning spring 2018. All sanctions from Ohio State’s student conduct office are complete as assessed, and Ohio State’s administration has determined Kappa may return to campus. Additionally, Kappa Kappa Gamma’s Fraternity Council has voted to remove Beta Nu Chapter from suspension.
“Over the last two years, our leadership and staff have worked closely with Ohio State’s administration and alumnae of Beta Nu Chapter in anticipation of returning to the campus,” says Beth Black, Fraternity President. “We are thrilled to be coming back to this outstanding institution! We look forward to once again being a contributing member of the Buckeye community. ”
Beta Nu Chapter was established Oct. 12, 1888, and was the first women’s fraternity founded at The Ohio State University. To date, there are approximately 3,000 initiates of the chapter.
The re-establishment process is currently underway. Beginning fall 2017, two staff representatives will lead Kappa’s on-campus marketing activities.
Kappa will join 15 other National Panhellenic Conference groups at Ohio State. The re-established chapter will bring Kappa Kappa Gamma’s number of active collegiate chapters in North America to 141.
