A long tradition as a Greek campus made Lafayette a fine place for the establishment of Zeta Beta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma.
With the increase in women’s enrollment, female students approached the administration with the idea of national groups for women. Local groups were formed and required to wait two years before seeking national affiliation to assure the continued interest of Lafayette women.
Kappa is proud to have been preferenced by Gamma Tau Delta, an outstanding group of young women who exemplified the highest standards, scholarship and campus leadership.
Zeta Beta Chapter was installed on April 26, 1980.
The captain and five of Lafayette’s cheerleaders were all Kappas.
In 1986, Zeta Beta won the campus lottery for the acquisition of a new apartment just for Kappa members. The new Kappa apartment was located on Parsons Street and was soon graced by a new chapter composite — the first to be printed in color.
