A little about KΠΩ....

   

 

Kappa Pi Omega has a longstanding tradition at LMU. We are proud of our history and ties with the campus and the people of the area; may they both live in our hearts forever.

In 1924 the Hestian Literary Society was formed. The goal of the society was to promote sisterhood. They chose the Greek goddess Hestia because she was known for her intelligence and strength. Little did the ladies know that they would be the beginning of a sisterhood that has lasted for 75 years. 

In 1927 they changed their name to Kappa Pi Omega, and began a sisterhood that lasted 75 years. 

Like most Greek Organizations, Kappa Pi Omega adopted a flower, mascots, and symbols when they drew up their charter.  Those included the yellow rose, teddy bear, Kappa Cuddly, and Temple of Hestia.  In 1979, the rainbow was also adopted as one of our symbols.

In 1981, Kappa Pi Omega went national and became Alpha Xi Delta from 1981-1987.

In 1987, Kappa Pi Omega was reborn at LMU. and has been going strong ever since.  Kappa Pi Omega was elected Greek organization of the year for 2002-2003, as well as several of the past few years. We strive to serve our campus and community, as well as promote sisterhood through our close relationships with each other
