History

In the spring of 1961, the need for a sixth sorority on Hope's campus became evident when there were more women desiring sorority membership than there were openings permitted. Questionaires asking whether there was an interest in starting a new sorority were sent to all Hope women. On May 11, 1962, thirty women dressed in formals gathered in Gilmore Cottage. There the Pan-Hellanic Board intiated these founders, and the Kappa Delta Chi Sorority was officially chartered.
