Chapter History

You have to know where you’ve been to know where you are going. Kappa holds a special place in its heart for Fraternity history, but every chapter of our organization has unique beginnings of its own. Each plays a part in shaping us today. Read more about our chapters’ histories in Kappa's digital archives.

Our chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma at UC Davis is called Epsilon Omicron! 

It must have been love that brought us together as we were founded the day after Valentine's Day on February 15, 1975. We are committed to honoring the values and history of the fraternity and chapter. Here is a message from our Ritual and History Director, Bailee Sheets:

"I am Bailee Sheets, the History and Ritual Director here at Epsilon Omicron. This is my second year in the organization, and I am excited to further the chapter's knowledge and passion for the history of Kappa Kappa Gamma. My job as the History and Ritual Director includes teaching and maintaining ritual practices, help to run formal meetings by reminding our active members of the core Kappa values, plan the Initiation ceremony and Inspiration Week activities, and put together the yearly chapter history report which highlights all the events we have held or participated in in the past year. I believe that knowledge on history, tradition and value creates an environment of connectedness, not only with each other here at Epsilon Omicron, but with chapters all across the United States and Canada. By knowing what Kappa was founded on we can ensure that we continue to uphold the ideas that Kappa was founded on and not only in our sorority but in our everyday lives as well. One of my favorite things we do as a chapter to celebrate Kappa’s history is our Founders Day brunch. We work with alumni to celebrate and evolve how we have and continue to honor Kappa values. I have found although we each were in Kappa at different times, places, and had different experiences while in college we all promote friendship, leadership, and scholarship."
