15 Year Anniversary Ball
Early in the fall of 1988, Jeannine Popovic gathered some prominent young women on campus to begin the process for creating Kappa Chi Alpha Sorority. She had belonged to a sorority for a year already and had became increasingly more dissatisfied with the organization’s beliefs in hazing, among other things. Rather than continue to belong to something that she didn't believe in, Jeannine decided to create a new unique sorority that was unlike those already on campus. Her dream was to belong to an organization whose members truly enjoyed being with each other. A sorority that, in reality, stood for the ideals they taught about sisterhood, friendship, and trust rather than just proclaiming those ideals then never really following through with them. To her this meant having Sisters she could trust and respect- Sisters who did not haze one another. She asked her Little Sister Marri Andrews to join her and together they removed themselves from their old sorority and moved forward with their dream. They gathered six friends who shared their beliefs about friendship and Sisterhood. With the support of some of the brothers of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, they created their ideal sorority, Kappa Chi Alpha which was officially recognized by the WCSU Student Government Association on November 28, 1988.
