You have to know where you’ve been to know where you are going. Kappa holds a special place in its heart for Fraternity history, but every association of our organization has unique beginnings of its own. Each plays a part in shaping us today and continuing the Kappa tradition beyond college.
Denver Alumnae Association’s History
Our Association was founded in April 1899 and is one of the oldest and largest alumnae associations in the country. The Denver Alumnae Association began with enthusiastic Kappa alumnae who lived in Denver but were not members of any local chapters at the time. Beta Mu, Colorado, did not exist until 1901; Gamma Omicron, Wyoming, was founded in 1927; Delta Zeta at Colorado College was installed in 1932; and Epsilon Beta at Colorado State University arrived in 1956. Today our active association members represent over 80 collegiate chapters in North America.
Today the association is comprised of unique geographic groups: All-Association members live in no particular area of metro Denver; East Side Sisters live in the far eastern reaches of Denver; Kappa Kountry Kousins hail from the western foothills; and Sisters in the City focus activities in our exciting downtown Denver.
Our 400 dues-paying members may attend any or all of these gatherings.
