Kappa Kappa Gamma History
Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded on October 13, 1870 at Monmouth College. With the founders having a strong love of learning and literature, academics and leadership were, and still are, at the basis of this organization. With the Civil War just ending and women still not having the right to vote or hold political office, creating this women's fraternity was a huge accomplishment.
Kappa Kappa Gamma celebrates it's Founders Day on October 13th!
