Chapter GPA: 3.326

Throughout the past year the Eta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma has focused it energies trying to build strong relationships within the Greek community at UW- Madison as well as forming stronger sisterly bonds within our chapter. Our dedication to academic and scholarly excellence placed us once again at the top of the Panhellenic “Study Table” competition. The Eta chapter logged the most study hours at libraries around the campus.

Kappa Kappa Gamma dedicated much of the year to philanthropic events throughout the Greek system. We participated in Humorology, a musical performance competition that raises money for an all Greek Philanthropy. Kappa Kappa Gamma, paired with Kappa Sigma, won the award for “Funniest Show” and “Best Female Lead”. Our members were completely dedicated to raising money for The Chris Farley Foundation and Camp One Heart Land.

The Eta Chapter invited the Kappa Alumni from the area and their families to Trick or Treat at our sorority house this fall. Also, we had a very successful Founder’s Day where we were joined for dinner, trivia, and sharing stories with the alumni. It was wonderful to hear about the history and fun times of Kappa from the alumni!

“Sisterhood is the essence of all the wisdom of the ages, distilled into a single word. You cannot see sisterhood, neither can you hear it nor taste it. But you can feel it a hundred times a day. It is a pat on the back, a smile of encouragement. It’s someone to share with, to celebrate your achievements. From the outside looking in, you can never understand it. From the inside looking out, you can never explain it.” ~Anonymous
