A Top Tier Chapter with an Aging Facility
OUR AGING HOME PUTS OUR STATUS AT RISK As you know, our chapter house is the focal point of the Kappa experience at OU; however, our home was built in 1934 and is showing its age. While it has been updated on a regular basis to meet the needs of each new generation, you've likely lived through water leaks, chiller and boiler issues, outdated decorations and furnishings, cramped bathrooms, and a very dated kitchen with limited servicing space. Keeping our house up to contemporary codes, safety standards, and student expectations is a pricey proposition--one that is growing pricier every year.
The Competition is Outpacing Us
In order for Kappa to recruit the best possible members to our sisterhood, our facilities must be competitive. Student housing is changing around us, and we need to look forward before we fall behind.
OU: The University has renovated and rebuilt several dormitories on campus. These new dorms provide state-of-the-art living and learning spaces with increased privacy in individual rooms.
Norman: Developers have built six new apartments downtown and near campus. Most of the apartments include modern, updated spaces with luxury features such as pools, workout facilities and social space.
Greek housing: Fourteen fraternities and sororities have recently completed, or are in the process of, major renovations or rebuilds. These new and updated facilities include increased personal, social, and study space, progressive technology, improved efficiency, upgraded safety, and attractive amenities similar to those dorms and apartments in Norman.
"I feel so blessed and fortunate to have been invited to be a Kappa. I have grown to appreciate the honor, experience and friendships more and more. In gratitude, I felt called to help ensure the legacy and foundation of this outstanding institution."
