Historical facts: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  1. In 1929, Kappa Phi Delta was founded at Margaret Morrison Carnegie College, part of the larger Carnegie Institute of Technology. When founded, there was an agreement not to petition a national fraternity for 10 years.

  2. At the time of the petition, Kappa Phi Delta was the oldest sorority at the women’s college. Beta Pi, a sorority in the fine arts college, elected to join with Kappa Phi Delta. Together, they became Delta Xi Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma.

  3. The installation in February 1944 coincided with the 25th anniversary of Gamma Epsilon Chapter, Pittsburgh.

Fun facts:

  1. During the early years, most members of the chapter commuted. When a large apartment building was remodeled for women students in 1948, there were many more residents and many Kappas became roommates or floormates.

  2. During the 1978–79 school year, Delta Xi Chapter moved from its residence in Morewood Gardens to a real home in the new Greek Quad.

  3. In spring 2017, the chapter participated in the annual Greek Sing competition and won first place for its performance of “Moana” with partners Sigma Phi Epsilon.
