Chapter History

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 chapter of our organization has unique beginnings of its own. Each plays a part in shaping us today. Read more about our chapters’ histories in Kappa's digital archives.

The Gamma Phi Chapter was founded at Southern Methodist University in 1929 when SMU consisted of only 1,371 women. While the campus has grown exponentially, and the female enrollment is double what it was during the Gamma Phi chapter’s charter year, the Fraternity still holds a reputation of excellence, sisterhood, and honor on the SMU campus, and it proudly consists of more than 150 active members.
