In January 1986, Extension Chairman Marjorie Matson Converse, Purdue, returned to Fraternity Council after a visit to New Haven, Connecticut, and reported that students and the university were indeed interested in Kappa.
The Fraternity approved the proposal and Zeta Xi Chapter was established in April 1986.
Zeta Xi Chapter was installed on Jan. 17, 1987, with 21 charter members.
Center Church near the Town Green served as the installation and initiation site.
The chapter's first semiformal, the Kappa Kabaret, was a great source of pride for members because it pulled together the efforts of the whole chapter.
