Kappa Chapter Herstory


 

Gamma Alpha Omega Sorority, Inc. Kappa Chapter at Oregon State University was

founded on April 29th, 2000 which was at the time the first and only Latina based sorority in the state of Oregon.

It began by a group of young women interested in finding a group that had sense of belonging and a strong sisterhood; a place that felt like home.  Cerise Barton, from the University of Washington Gamma Chapter, came to Oregon State University on exchange with the desire to find women on the OSU campus that were interested in the sisterhood that she already had found.   

Through much hard work ten ladies came together to begin the dream.

Our lovely founding madres are:
Patricia Garcia
Amber Bacio
Ana Perfecto
Cerise Barton
Lucia Vijil
Sara Marchel-Bradford
Marcia Torres-Ruiz
Delia Ponce-Ramirez

Our lovely charters are:

Claudia Palacios-Limon & Yuriana Garcia-Lewis

 After much hard work and dedication their dream has continued to flourish and grow with every class. From the first class of Alpha to our most recent Kappa class, we learn the traditions of the past & remember that "in order to move forward, you have to know what has come before you..."
