Beta Kappa Chapter was installed at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa in 1921. Beta Kappa had the unique experience of being one of four chapters established by NPC groups on the same weekend at Drake. The four groups held simultaneous installations, and a combined reception for members, faculty, and townspeople was held to celebrate.
