Lawrence, KS 66044-3481

Kappa Nikê Response
Kappa Chapter was established in 1881 at the University of Kansas in Lawrence — the first chapter to receive its charter by Convention vote and the first chapter installed west of the Mississippi. Four years later, the 1885 Convention asked Kappa to create a new Fraternity quarterly. The young members published the Kappa Alpha Theta Journal — now called the The Kappa Alpha Theta Magazine — its first three years.
