Kappa Kappa Gamma (Gamma Omicron Chapter)

Kappa Kappa Gamma as an organization was founded in 1870, making it one of the oldest women's fraternities! The Gamma Omicron chapter at the University of Wyoming, however, has been active since 1927. Kappa's core values are based on friendship, leadership, and scholarship, and these values are what unite all our members throughout the generations of our organization. We promote a broad college experience based on intellectual development and self-growth, as well as involvement within the chapter and around UW's campus. 

As Kappas, we're always looking for opportunities to dream boldy and live fully as we give back and inspire positive change. We focus on three pillars of philanthropy: our internal philanthropy is the Kappa Kappa Gamma foundation, our national philanthropy supports mental health organizations, and our chapter works locally with the Albany County SAFE Project. In the pursuit of our mission to inspire positive change, Kappa partners with several non-profit organizations that help advocate for a brighter future of mental health and well-being. These national organizations include Active Minds, the JED Foundation, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Mental Health America, and the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). 

The Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation helps Kappas pursue life's opportunities by funding impactful programs, including scholarships, financial assistance grants, member education, and history and heritage. Recently, the Kappa Foundation provided a grant for Talkspace, an online platform that makes it convenient to access mental health resources and paves the way for accessible mental health care. The grant makes the service free of charge to collegiate members and provides a discount for alumnae.

We also partner with a local non-profit organization in the Laramie community. The Albany County Safe Project supports survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and family violence. In 2022, we raised over $5,000 for victims of this violence and all funds went directly to the cause.

The involvement of our members on campus includes: leadership roles on the UW Panhellenic Council, Kappa intramural sports teams, participating in the Big Event, attending and donating to philanthropies for other chapters on campus, Honors College membership, UW Athletics, various RSOs on campus, Mortar Board, Order of Omega, and more!
