Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, on October 13th, 1870. Six young women were indeed pioneers when they dared to march into the most public part of the Monmouth College campus, its chapel, wearing their golden keys in their hair.
The six young founders of Kappa Kappa Gamma were among the first women to avail themselves of the privilege of Greek-letter societies, that is, to organize into a congenial social group for the cultivation of friendship and intellectual stimulation. Kappa Kappa Gamma is recognized nationally as one of the oldest, largest and most respected sororities and currently has 136 chapters and over 300 alumni associations across the world, with a total membership of more than 230,000 women.
Eta Epsilon chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma was chartered in 1999 at Johns Hopkins University by a close-knit group of friends who sought to establish a new sorority distinct from others in existence at the time. The Kappas of Johns Hopkins are a unique community - we form a bond with each and every sister and can count on one another in times of happiness as well in times of need. We are active in building a community of friends: extraordinary women who genuinely enjoy our time together and wish to make the most of our college years as sisters. Spend any time with the Kappas and you will see that we may be diverse, but we all have on thing in common: love for our sorority and faith in our enduring friendship.
