Kappa Kappa Gamma

Eta Alpha Chapter at Furman University

Eta Alpha Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma


"Kappa is….
The contentment of friendships but never the complacency of the clique, the encouragement of individual development instead of strict conformity to the group, the curiosity to learn and to achieve, not limited to the quest for grades nor to a special time of life, the joy of serving others without the smugness of the do-gooder, and the pride in a great heritage of a sound organization but never the self-satisfaction of the status quo. Finally, Kappa is the ability to build on yesterday while doing today as a preparation for tomorrow."

"They're the people you can share your secrets with, cry with, laugh with, and just be yourself with. They don't judge you or make you change. They accept you exactly as you are. They look at you and they see a great person, one they love spending time with. You all share something in common and are tied together by memories, tears, laughs & smiles. You're tied together by love for the other. Sisterhood is the greatest thing in the world. I find my time with my sisters the best times of my life. My sisters are my heart, my soul, my fun, my laughter, my tears, my love, and my life." 

Who Are We?


Eta Alpha History

In early 1992, invitations went out to all of the National Panhellenic Conference Sorority Headquarters asking them if they had interest in making chapter expansion presentations at Furman University. In the spring of 1993, ten groups were selected to present at the university, with Kappa Kappa Gamma being one of those groups. Seven groups were selected and charted in 1994. The Furman Social Club for Women called the "Kappas" then became the Eta Alpha of Kappa Kappa Gamma.
