Kappa Delta was founded on October 23, 1897 at the State Female Normal School (now Longwood University), in Farmville, Virginia. Currently, Kappa Delta has over 130 active chapters. The sorority promotes true friendship and inspires its members to reach their full potential. Kappa Delta's Eta Lambda Chapter joined Franklin and Marshall College’s Greek system in the spring of 2008, replacing Kappa Beta Gamma.
At F&M, Kappa Delta women not only hold leadership positions within the sorority, but also on various student organizations such as the Environmental Action Alliance, Black Pyramid, Steppin’ Out, Mi Gente Latina, F&M Dance Team and the College Reporter just to name a few. Our high scholarship ideals are evident in our drive for academic excellence, as Kappa Delta is consistently one of the best greek organizations in the classroom. Despite maintaining good grades, we also do our best to give back to the community. In addition to KD’s four national philanthropies, the Eta Lamba chapter at F&M is involved with several others including Relay for Life, Autism Awareness, and AIDS Awareness. In the Spring of 2011, Kappa Delta was recognized as the Most Outstanding Greek Organization at Franklin & Marshall.
