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

  1. Kappa Kappa Gamma and Greek Week arrived at the University of Florida the same weekend: March 3–5, 1978.

  2. The first official chapter meeting was held on March 5 and a campus reception was held that afternoon at the Gainesville Garden Center.

Fun facts:

  1. The bright yellow posters proclaiming the establishment for Epsilon Phi at the University of Florida said: “We need a special kind of girl!” And the extension team found 40 very special young women. Each one was enthusiastic, outstanding and eager to be part of a Kappa chapter.

  2. Recruitment rounds were held at the chapter houses of Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma and Alpha Delta Pi. Epsilon Phi’s establishment was truly a Panhellenic affair.
