52nd National KE Convention

The 52nd National Convention of Kappa Epsilon will be held at the historic Francis Marion Hotel and Spa in Downtown Charleston South Carolina from July 31- August 3rd 2019. We are truly going to step back in time to the era of the founding of our fraternity at the Francis Marion. The Francis Marion is part of the Historic Hotels of America and opened its doors just a few years after the founding Kappa Epsilon in 1924. In 2016 Travel and Leisure ranked Charleston as the number one best city in the world to travel to and brings a mixture of award winning hotels, restaurants, south charm, boutiques, beautiful waterfronts, and beaches.

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 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.
