On March 25, 2017, the first members of Kappa Gamma chapter at Southeast Missouri State were initiated into Alpha Phi. The weekend celebrated 83 collegiate and two alumnae initiates. International President Deana Koonsman Gage (Gamma Iota-Texas Tech) presided over the initiation ceremony and conducted the installation the next day. The installation banquet served as an opportunity for our members, family members and local alumnae to recognize the achievements of the new chapter and its members. University President Dr. Carlos Vargas-Aburto welcomed guests to the celebration, and Director of Greek Life DeAnté Smith welcomed the new chapter on behalf of the Greek community.
• Sorority housing is on Greek Hill at SEMO. During their second year on campus they were given the 3rd floor in Building K. It had sleeping rooms for 40 members and a small common area consisting of two rooms that were formerly the GA apartment. Due to the extreme response of the women of Alpha Phi the very next year they were awarded 1/2 of building K with a full-size lounge and chapter room, which was comparable to other sororities on campus. They shared building K with the men of Sigma Phi Epsilon and were in proximity of the sororities of Alpha Chi Omega, Gamma Phi Beta, Alpha Delta Pi and Delta Delta Delta.
