Installed March 12, 1904, the Zeta Chapter of Kappa Delta at the University of Alabama was the first women’s sorority on the UA campus and the first women’s sorority in the state of Alabama. Zeta Chapter is Kappa Delta’s oldest chapter to have been active continuously since its chartering.
Many leaders of the national organization—including two former national presidents—have come from our chapter. And many members have been leaders on campus and in the community.
Our chapter has a strong sisterhood and an even stronger commitment to making a difference through community service.
Why We Love Kappa Delta
Why do we love KΔ? There are so many different reasons, but we asked a few of our members to tell us why they're happy and proud to be KΔs:
McKenzie Minx PC'18
“I chose to be a KD, because from the very first time I walked into the house, I felt at home and comfortable with everyone. Being from out of state and not really knowing anything about rush was super scary, but as soon as I started to talk with the girls I felt at home, and I knew this was where I was meant to be! These are some of the many, many reasons I chose and love being a KD!”
Caroline Overmyer PC'19
“During rush, I loved the energy in KD and always felt so comfortable with all of the girls in there! KD has given me the best friends in the world, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else.”
Mary Tynes Flake PC'18
“I grew up watching my mom and her lifelong KD friends continue their amazing friendships that they formed throughout college. I knew that KD was very special to my mom, but during rush it became so apparent that KD was the perfect fit for me, too! Everyday that I went into the KD house, all of the girls were so fun and inviting, and I felt like I had known them forever. I am so glad that I made the right choice, and now I get to experience the lifelong friendships that KD provides!”
Carly Soistman PC'16
“KD has allowed me to have a home away from home filled with women that bring me joy and laughter in everything they do!”
