Auburn University had been on Kappa’s official list as a possible extension site for several years when, on May 16, 1962, the local Panhellenic at Auburn invited the Fraternity to establish a chapter.
Installation weekend for the new Kappa chapter was March 22–24, 1963.
The new chapter was assigned a dormitory suite that was furnished with furniture from Delta Beta Chapter, Duke. The furniture was supplemented with Kappa china from Kappa Headquarters, and silver coffee pots, flatware, and glass serving plates from the Boyd Hearthstone, Kappa's vacation home in Winter Park, Florida, that had recently closed.
For the chapter’s 10th anniversary in 1973, many of the 300 alumnae of Epsilon Eta Chapter gathered in the chapter room in Dorm II to find old friends and meet new ones.
Epsilon Eta was the second Kappa chapter in the state of Alabama.
Gifts to the new chapter included a gavel, silver punchbowl, trays and candlesticks from the Houston Alumnae Association and Baton Rouge Alumnae Association as well as Epsilon Epsilon Chapter, Emory; Gamma Pi Chapter, Alabama; Delta Rho Chapter, Mississippi; and Delta Upsilon Chapter, Georgia.
Epsilon Eta hosted GIRLS Academy in 2018.
