Chapter Beginnings

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.

Notable Thetas

From the very beginning, Theta alumnae have distinguished themselves in their careers and their volunteer endeavors. In fact, some are so well-known that they’re household names, and many have the distinction of being the first women in their professional fields. The archives takes this opportunity to recognize some of our more notable sisters.
