It has nearly 29,000 undergraduate students, 17 percent of whom are members of the fraternity/sorority community. Michigan is ranked in the top five U.S. public universities and “boasts one of the best college towns in the country,” according to U.S News and World Report.

HOW DO I START A KD CHAPTER ON MY CAMPUS?
This is one of the most frequent questions we are asked by individuals and college Panhellenics. Kappa Delta is committed to national growth and providing young women with a positive sorority experience. We eagerly welcome inquiries about ways we can expand our sorority to your campus. Starting new chapters is one of the most exciting things we do!
As a member of the National Panhellenic Conference, Kappa Delta Sorority abides by a set of rules that all NPC sororities must follow. These rules govern, among other things, the process of beginning a new chapter on a campus. For assistance and details about the process, visit the NPC website.
If you are a local sorority that is not affiliated with an NPC group and would like to be affiliated with Kappa Delta Sorority, please contact Kirstin Barry. We will be happy to answer questions about the process.
