On October 28th, our new members and other chapter members journeyed to Oxford, Ohio. We set out to explore Miami University, where our original sisters founded the sisterhood that binds us all. At the start of the trip, sisters excitedly signed their names into the guest book, and searched through the names of sisters that had visited previously. Our members took an interest in the astounding accomplishments displayed of our sisters across the country and throughout time. Kappa Tua finds it important to bring new members to Chapter Headquarters to establish an understanding of the depth of our history.

About Kappa Tau Chapter
Kappa Tau was founded on February 21, 1970 at Morehead State University in Morehead, KY. We've been around 48 years and going strong!
Our chapter is a part of Delta Zeta Region 13. We currently have a total of 74 members in our chapter and our average GPA is 3.13! For the academic year Fall 2016 through Spring 2017 our chapter has donated 3021 service hours and $5772.03!
On November 7th, 2017, the fall pledge class of the Kappa Tau chapter put together a philanthropy event to raise money for Starkey Hearing Foundation. Despite poor weather conditions, our chapter held a successful tournament inside Laughlin Gym. Seven organizations showed up to participate in the intense competition. Approximately $200 was raised to donate to Starkey. Our new members were able to play an active role in orchestrating a philanthropy even, and thus developed an understanding of the effort and payout of such events. The chapter also participated in various philanthropy events to support other organizations on campus. New Member Philanthropy Chair, Bre McKnight, said, "Being given the opportunity to make such an impact so early into my time as a Delta Zeta has shown me the true meaning behind this sisterhood. Our chapter coming together to benefit others was an amazing feeling."
The Kappa Tau Chapter hosted a kickball tournament to raise money for The Painted Turtle camp. Teams met in Laughlin Gym at Morehead State University for the challenge. Kappa Tau members refereed the games and sat on the sidelines cheering on the competing teams.
In two short hours, a champion emerged and over $300 was raised for the camp that touches the lives of so many deserving children. The Kappa Tau Chapter looks forward to hosting this event again in the future.
On October 22, 2016, two days before Founders Day, the Kappa Tau Chapter from Morehead State University in Kentucky set out on a journey to pay homage to the place where Delta Zeta began 114 years ago — Miami University.
Our visit included Delta Zeta National Headquarters and National Historical Museum in Oxford, Ohio. Stepping onto the property, our eyes were immediately drawn to the path of engraved bricks that lead to the front door of Headquarters.
The sisters of the Kappa Tau Chapter began a diligent search to find the brick that intertwined them into the path of sisterhood. Our journey continued as we walked through the front door and crossed the threshold into a world where the preservation of the ideals, principles and values of Delta Zeta can be seen from the pictures hanging on the wall to the meaningful name of each room.
We signed our names in the guest book, forever becoming part of the living history, while sisters who had visited before proudly showed their signatures.
That day, walking in the footsteps of our Founders and sisters before us, we truly learned what it means to walk in the light of the flame.
