Kappa Delta Sorority Alpha Mu, founded in 1897, promotes service to others, academic excellence, leadership, and sisterhood. The Alpha Mu Chapter of Kappa Delta was founded at The University of Mississippi in 1927. Our chapter is dedicated to our two national philanthropies, Prevent Child Abuse America and Girl Scouts of the USA. We raised more than $52,000 for Prevent Child Abuse America and the Exchange Club Family Center of Oxford through our “Shamrock” philanthropy event. This was more than any other KD chapter in the nation! Shamrock consists of a swing dancing competition between sororities, fraternities, and other campus organizations. Kappa Delta has been a proud partner of the Girl Scouts of the USA since 1998, and every year we hold many events for our local girl scout troops, including the Confident Cookie Selling and an International Tea Party.
Academics are a strong focus for our chapter. KD consistently ranks in the top three of all sororities in overall GPA. In addition to our academics, we are very passionate about serving on campus. We have Orientation Leaders, members of ASB, with sisters serving as Vice President, Executive Assistant to the Vice President, Campus Liaison, Parliamentarian, Executive Assistant to the President, Judicial Chair, Comptroller for the Treasury Department, Senators, and President Pro Tempore. You can also find KDs as a part of the Ambassador program, Student Alumni Council, the Honors College, the Rebelettes, cheerleading, soccer, and many honor societies and volunteer organizations. Additionally, we have members who dedicate their time serving on the executive boards of Rebelthon, the Big Event, and Student Activities Association.
KDs love to volunteer with our philanthropies, get involved on campus, and strive for our academic goals, but more than anything, we love to spend time with each other. Kappa Delta is a sisterhood, and we love being a part of it!
