Kappa Omega (KO)

The purpose of Kappa Omega sorority is to strengthen the achievements and experiences of its members while at the University of the South by creating an environment that supports the academic efforts and personal interests of all members; by encouraging the cultivation of meaningful and lasting relationships with fellow students; and by enhancing the community at-large through interaction, contribution, and commitment.  Through this effort and support of each other, we pursue honor, responsibility, and life-long friendships while setting an example that encourages others to do the same. This philosophy carries into the future and creates a valuable, supportive alumnae network that fosters the development of current members.
