Kappa Kappa Gamma (Gamma Omicron Chapter)

 

Kappa Kappa Gamma was founded in 1870 and is one of the oldest women's fraternities. Their core values are based on friendship, leadership, and scholarship. While the times have changed since 1870, their values stay the same and are what keeps the women of this fraternity motivated and well- rounded. Kappa promotes a broad college experience based on intellectual development and self- growth, as well as involvement within the chapter and around UW's campus. 

Kappa focuses on three pillars of philanthropy including internally with the Kappa
Kappa Gamma foundation, nationally with Reading is Fundamental and locally with
Albany County SAFE project. Each pillar includes different ways their members are involved. Kappa's annual Homecoming Chili for alumnae and family is their primary event to build the Gamma Omicron Foundation scholarship. They also partner with the UW Lab School which allows their members to have a hands on experience with Reading is Fundamental. They participate in monthly book buddies with their
kindergarten classroom, running a Reading is Key event and hosting their Fall philanthropy “Wingin' it with Kappa" in support of Reading is Fundamental. For Albany County SAFE project, the Kappa's volunteer at their community events and host their spring philanthropy, Mr. Wyoming to raise awareness about SAFE and Domestic Violence Awareness month. Overall, the chapter loves participating in other philanthropies including Relay for Life, the Special Olympics Jackolope Jump, Halloween's safe Treat and many others.
