Alpha Kappa Alpha



Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated has been a landmark organization since it's beginnings in 1908. Being the first black Greek letter sorority nationally, we continued to bring that innovation to WKU becoming the first black Greek letter organization on this campus as well. Epsilon Zeta is responsible for some of the most well recognized programs currently at WKU. These include the Ms. Black Western Gala, the Ivy Book Club, and the Freshman Tea. We also dedicate a full week to community service every Fall in addition to the hours we commit to community service throughout the semester. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated continues to uphold the legacy set forth by our founders; sisterhood, scholarship, and service to all mankind.
