Kappa Delta to Establish Chapter at Bentley University
MEMPHIS, Tennessee – The National Council is pleased to announce Kappa Delta Sorority will establish its 167th active chapter at Bentley University in fall 2018. Kappa Delta will join three other National Panhellenic Conference sororities on campus: Alpha Phi, Gamma Phi Beta and Phi Sigma Sigma.
“Bentley University recently celebrated its centennial year, and Kappa Delta couldn’t be more honored to contribute to the next 100 years of history-making at this impressive institution,” said Susan Stockton, who as national vice president leads Kappa Delta’s extension efforts.
Founded in 1917, Bentley’s classic New England campus is located just outside of Boston. Bentley is a private institution and an internationally recognized business university. The university enrolls more than 4,300 undergraduates, and 15 percent of its undergraduate students join Greek organizations. Bentley’s fraternity and sorority community raised more than $60,000 for philanthropic causes last year.
