Kappa Delta (KD)

Founded in 2003, Chapter Eta Epsilon of Kappa Delta is the only national sorority represented at Sewanee. Our members play an active role on campus by engaging in activities including Residential Life, Varsity Athletics, the Arcadian Program, ISC, Up ‘til Dawn, SOP, Orchestra, University Choir, the EMS program, and more. From humble beginnings, the chapter has grown exponentially, and continues to do so. Kappa Delta is committed to inspiring each and every member to lead a values-based life and become a woman of greatness. The principles and ideals upon which our organization was founded are ingrained in everything we do as a sorority, and our members, chapter programs, and initiatives reflect these values every day.

Values:  In essence, Kappa Deltas strive to Live Great!

Living great, or living by our values, promotes all that Kappa Delta stands for.

When more than 230,000 members are dedicated to leading with values, we are empowered to better the world.
