Kappa Delta Sorority to Establish Chapter at Loyola University Chicago

MEMPHIS, Tennessee – The National Council is pleased to announce Kappa Delta Sorority will establish its 169th active chapter at Loyola University Chicago in fall 2018. Kappa Delta will join six other National Panhellenic Conference sororities on campus: Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Sigma Alpha, Chi Omega, Kappa Kappa Gamma and Phi Sigma Sigma.

“Kappa Delta is excited to join a values-based community located in the third largest U.S. city, where the curriculum emphasizes ethical awareness, reflection and decision-making,” said Susan Stockton, who as national vice president leads Kappa Delta’s extension efforts.

Founded in 1870, Loyola is one of the nation’s largest Jesuit Catholic universities and the only one located in Chicago. Recognizing Loyola’s excellence in education, U.S. News and World Report has ranked Loyola consistently among the top national universities. Loyola is also among a select group of universities recognized for community service and engagement by the Carnegie Foundation and the Corporation for National and Community Service. The university enrolls more than 10,100 undergraduates, and 15 percent of its undergraduate students join Greek organizations.
