Kappa Delta (KD)
Founded in 2003, the Eta Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Delta is one of two national sororities represented at Sewanee. Our members play an active role on campus by engaging in activities including Residential Life, Varsity Athletics, the Arcadian Program, Inter Sorority Council, Up Till Dawn (St. Jude), Student Outing Program, Orchestra, Choir, Bonner, APO and more. Since the founding the chapter has grown drastically to 90 active members, and is steadily expanding that number. Kappa Delta is committed to inspiring each and every member to lead a values-based life and become a woman of greatness. The principles and ideals upon which our organization was founded are ingrained in everything we do as a sorority, and our members, chapter programs, and initiatives reflect these values every day.
