Welcome to Kappa Zeta

Ashley Neice, Staff Writer

Ladies, are you interested in Greek life but cannot find the time or have enough money to join? No problem! Kappa Zeta is the sorority for you! Kappa Zeta is for women age 18 or older. Kappa Zeta was founded on February 10, 2020 by a female college student, Kathy Zhu. “Kappa Zeta is a newly established, online-based sorority for young, female adults that fosters genuine friendships from all over the country. We meet about every six months to have an ultimate girl’s retreat where we plan a weekend of fun and impactful activities,” Zhu states. Kappa Zeta understands it is incredibly difficult to find time to make real connections in our busy lives, and it is easy to forget how important it is to surround yourself with a stable group of people. Zhu describes, “Our core values are to empower others, demonstrate strength, and show kindness.”
So far there are 33 members in the sorority. The group is looking to have at least 100 (or more) members by October of this year. To join, you must be a female aged between 18 and 29.
You must also comply to the membership rules:
Members must join a GroupMe chat within five days of receiving an email invitation and participate in a five day trial period in the group chat to see if you mix well with other members.
Members must remain active in both group chats. No participation in group chats of five days or more can result in a membership suspension (an email will be sent as a warning.
Members must vote in all polls in the main group chat.
Members must tag @KappaZetaHQ in thier Instagram bio.
Members must order at least one piece of KZ apparel.
Members must post at least one Instagram picture in KZ apparel. Members must attend at least one KZ related event per year—whether it be state meetups or nationwide retreats.
Members must be civil with every member and abide by the three core values.
You can be removed from KZ for violating terms and agreements with two-thirds of the membership vote.
To apply, visit their website KappaZetaHQ.com. In the top right corner, click the “How to Join” toggle, and there you will find a link to a Google Form to begin the registration process.
A common question asked before beginning registration is, “Does this sorority charge any fees?” Right now, the answer is no. There are talks of possibly charging $10 a month to keep a membership, but there is no definitive conclusion yet. The group will try to meet about every six months for an all-girls retreat; a weekend filled with many activities and fun! The first retreat will be held on June 26-29, 2020 in Orlando, Florida. The cost for this is $127.60. There are a few spots left, and if anyone is interested, message Kathy Zhu on GroupMe, Snapchat, or by email at [email protected].
The Airbnb has been reserved, so there is little time to join! After the first retreat, the group will discuss planning for the next!
