Epsilon Gamma

University of North Carolina


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

  1. Epsilon Gamma Chapter was established in February 1958 and received its charter at the Convention in Bedford Springs, Pennsylvania, that June. It was formally installed in November.

  2. Epsilon Gamma was the seventh sorority at the University of North Carolina. At its start, it was the first and only “two-year chapter” in Kappa’s history because UNC admitted junior women transfers, undergraduate women who lived locally in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and women graduate students in some departments — only allowing two years of membership in chapters. Before 1925, it had been primarily an all-male university. Eventually, sophomores and freshmen could join, and the first-semester Recruitment was finally allowed.

  3. Epsilon Gamma was awarded the standards award for sisterhood at the 2018 Convention.

Fun facts:

  1. Epsilon Gamma is the only chapter on campus to remain in the same house since its founding in 1958. Subsequently, it is the only one that owns its house.

  2. Kappas took home the gold and were named the 2018 UNC Women's Intramural Street Hockey Champions.

  3. Every semester, the chapter hosts a Kappa thrift shop for seniors to pass down T-shirts and other items to underclassmen.
