On October 1, 1999, the concept of Delta Kappa Delta came to fruition at the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. At that time, Texas A&M University boasted a 40,000 plus student population, with less than five percent categorized as minorities.
B.E.T.I.S., Behind Every True Indian Sister, was created as a grass roots service organization prior to obtaining the Greek letters of Delta Kappa Delta. The National Founding Mothers realized the need to unite, serve, and educate the campus and community. Developing this vision proved to be arduous, but it also began the creation of a bond between thirteen young ladies that will stand the test of time.
Through B.E.T.I.S., these women were able to spread and strengthen their ideals to other South Asian women on campus and begin to create a legacy. In addition to serving the community with enthusiasm, the National Founding Mothers emphasized excellence in education, citizenship, culture, and Sisterhood.
Delta Kappa Delta Sorority has grown tremendously since its inception, stretching its desire to serve to several cities across the United States: including several cities in Texas, the Midwest and East Coast. These women have dedicated their hearts and souls to Service and Sisterhood, exemplifying the concept of “Sisterhood Built through Service”. Through our goal for a brighter future, we begin our work with the purest of hearts - that of a child. In time, we hope that our work will benefit our communities and provide a lasting and prosperous future.
