You have to know where you’ve been to know where you are going. Kappa holds a special place in its heart for Fraternity history, but every chapter of our organization has unique beginnings of its own. Each plays a part in shaping us today. Read more about our chapters’ histories in Kappa's digital archives.
Kappa, like all five other sororities, has its own house located on campus. These houses opened in September of 2000 and are an integral part of sorority life at Washington and Lee. Our campus has a very inclusive Greek system with more than 75% of Washington and Lee University women serving as active members of a sorority.
The Zeta Tau chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma was one of the three sororities to participate in the first recruitment at Washington and Lee in 1989, along with Kappa Alpha Theta, and Chi Omega. Washington and Lee's fourth and fifth sorority, Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Delta, were added in 1992 and 1997 respectively. Alpha Delta Pi colonized in January 2009.
