Epsilon Upsilon

Baylor University

1977

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

  1. The Athenean Club was founded in 1935 when four freshman girls felt a need for more social contact between “dorm girls” and “town girls.” Each of the four chose a friend, and the eight of them formed a sorority based on high ideals, which grew strong and loyal with approximately 1,500 initiates between 1935 and 1977.

  2. During Sept. 22–24, 1977, Kappa Kappa Gamma installed Epsilon Upsilon Chapter at Baylor University. 

  3. Beginning on Thursday and culminating in a formal banquet on Saturday evening, a total of eight initiation services were held and close to 400 Atheneans became Kappas.

Fun facts:

  1. Everyone knows Texas is a big state and Texans “think big,” so it was only fitting that this was the biggest initiation yet for Kappa Kappa Gamma!

  2. The 17 young women who chose to become charter members of Epsilon Upsilon Chapter were initiated in the first out of eight services.

  3. In 1985, part of the recruitment process consisted of taking potential new members to different Kappa apartments — “apartment hops” — and themes were Halloween and Christmas.
