Celebrating 100th Year Anniversary

On May 13, 1921, at the invitation of Professor Cooper, female pharmacy students attending the universities of Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa State agreed for the establishment of Kappa Epsilon.

In 2021, Kappa Epsilon will honor its rich history of a professional pharmacy fraternity founded by Professor Zada Mary Cooper. We look forward to sharing news about KE's 2021 Convention with plans to be held in the Washington DC area.

The Big Easy!

Mark your calendars and plan to join the Kappa Epsilon Fraternity in New Orleans, Louisiana, the first week in August 2017. A vibrant city steeped in Creole culture, New Orleans offers a rich mix of both spicy and sweet.

“The memory of things gone is important to a jazz musician. Things like old folks singing in the moonlight in the back yard on a hot night or something said long ago.”
