Kappa Gam Worldwide
It definitely pays to wear a little something Kappa when traveling—pays in friendship, that is. Maybe it’s your KKG luggage tag or an iris tote—whatever your Kappa symbol, it’s almost guaranteed to elicit a conversation in a public place with “Are you a Kappa?”
Kappas are travelers—from traveling across the U.S. and Canada for Biennial Convention, to journeys with Kappa Travels—to traveling or moving abroad and meeting other Kappas through Keys Overseas. We’ve experienced other cultures, tried new foods, taken hundreds of thousands of photographs and met new friends.
We rack up frequent flier miles. We’ve perfected the art of getting through airport security in a reasonable amount of time. Occasionally, we run into Kappas in airports and in foreign countries. Ashley, a Kappa alumna from Illinois Wesleyan, described her travel abroad experience:
“In May 2004, I had the opportunity to study abroad in various cities around China, including Hong Kong. The trip sparked a desire to teach overseas … In August 2010, I moved 8,000 miles away from the only place I’d ever called home to Hong Kong … This experience has been full of amazing opportunities, the chance to meet great friends (including several Kappas!) and discover so many things about myself!”
Even in Hong Kong Ashley was able to find Kappas! Are you studying abroad or moving abroad? You’re not alone! Join our Keys Overseas Facebook group to connect with Kappas in other parts of the world!
