MEMPHIS, Tenn., Nov. 11, 2022 – Kappa Delta Sorority will reestablish its Gamma Zeta Chapter at Texas Christian University located in Fort Worth, Texas, in fall 2023. Kappa Delta will join twelve other National Panhellenic Conference sororities on campus: Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Phi Mu, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma Kappa and Zeta Tau Alpha. TCU has 43 fraternities and sororities on campus, and more than 50% of undergraduate women are involved in Panhellenic sororities.
“TCU is a world-class, values-centered university, and we are thrilled to bring Kappa Delta back to its campus. The horned frog community is thriving, and we can’t wait to be a part of it next year and for many years to come,” said National Vice President-Membership Courtney Hicks Dickey, who leads Kappa Delta’s extension efforts.
Kappa Delta’s Gamma Zeta Chapter was originally founded at Texas Christian University in 1955 and was one of the first eight national sororities on the TCU campus. The chapter has been dormant since 1993. The timing of the reestablishment presents an even more exciting opportunity for Kappa Delta, as the Gamma Zeta Chapter will be returning to Fort Worth exactly 30 years after its departure.
“We congratulate and welcome back Kappa Delta to our Horned Frog campus community! Kappa Delta will complement our other 11 thriving Panhellenic Chapters in providing scholarship, leadership and philanthropic opportunities for students desiring to develop their skills and relationships through chapter affiliation,” says Kathryn Cavins Tull Vice Chancellor of TCU. “We look forward to developing an exceptional partnership with Kappa Delta and share its sentiment that it feels like Kappa Delta is returning home to TCU.”
