Our Chapter

It was because of the beautiful friendship of Lenora Ashmore, Mary Sommerville Sparks, Julia Gardiner Tyler, and Sara Turner that Kappa Delta began. And today, the ideals of friendship, fellowship and sisterly love have remained constant and strong for 106 years, just as our four founders envisioned it in the beginning.
In 1912, Kappa Delta Sorority was the only Sorority to become a member of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) immediately upon petition. However, this did not come without sacrifice. NPC required all chapters to be four year institutions, and two of our chapters were not, one being our beloved founding chapter (Alpha). The sisters of these two chapters selflessly relinquished their charters for the sake of the future of Kappa Delta. Joyfully, Alpha chapter was re-colonized in 1949 when (now) Longwood University became a four-year baccalaureate institution.
Kappa Delta has over 210 chartered chapters. Kappa Delta has over 205,000 members, more than 14,000 undergraduate members in 141 active collegiate chapters. Kappa Delta also has more than 510 chartered alumnae chapters, the most of any National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) group. Our chapter, Epsilon Lambda was founded at UAHuntsville in 1977. Our chapter strives to achieve five areas of excellence: excellence in academics, leadership, social, membership, and philanthropy.
