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.

Today, there are approximately 140 Kappa Kappa Gamma chapters throughout the United States and Canada, with over 260,000 members. Our chapter at Colorado State University is called the Epsilon Beta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. It was founded on March 10th, 1956. 

Chapter House 

Epsilon Beta’s first home was of white stucco, had a red tile roof, wrought iron porch furniture, and French provincial and early American style interior furnishings. A fashionable boutique was later housed there. As Colorado State’s enrollment increased, the Panhellenic quota changed, and the chapter needed more space.

In September 1960, a move was made to the present home, west of the campus with a beautiful view of the foothills and distant Long’s Peak. The three-story light brick French provincial structure with a blue front door was originally decorated by Grace S. Anderson Agee, an interior decorator. It was refurbished in 1973, with help from the Fort Collins Alumnae Club (now Association) and the Denver Mother’s Club. It was again refurbished in 2012 and 2015 by Epsilon Beta's House Board. Our most recent remodel was an expansion project completed in 2020, remodeling our current dining room on the first floor and adding bedrooms on our 2nd and 3rd-floors.
