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

  1. Gamma Sigma Chapter had its beginnings as local sorority Lambda Theta, which was organized on June 4, 1925, at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

  2. In June 1928, Lambda Theta became Gamma Sigma Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma.

  3. Gamma Sigma Chapter surrendered its charter in 1976 as the active members believed the campus attitude toward fraternity life was not conducive to the chapter continuing.

Fun facts:

  1. With the help of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity, Gamma Sigma won the university’s snow sculpting contest in 1959.

  2. Gamma Sigma was featured in The Key in 1972 with a description of the philanthropic work the members were doing with foster children living in group homes.

  3. In an effort to promote chapter scholarship, a statue of “Hortense,” later renamed “Minerva,” was purchased. Every year, Kappa challenged Pi Beta Phi for the statue.
