For over ninety years, Kappa Delta has thrived at Ole Miss as a chapter dedicated to developing young women into strong leaders, as well as providing a quality membership experience during their collegiate years. In 2018, the Alpha Mu House Corporation recognized that if they were to still provide a premier experience for the chapter members, they needed to also provide the premier facility. After many discussions, it was decided that a rebuild of their previous home would be the best plan to meet the needs of the evolving and growing chapter.

Working with Pryor Morrow Architects and WAR Construction, the Alpha Mu House Corporation designed the plans to ensure current and future collegians would have the ideal space to call home. These plans are focusing on current and potential future needs of the chapter, while also capturing the tradition that many alumnae hold near to them from the previous home. At Alpha Mu, chapter members now have the space to meet, socialize, study, and share meals together.

 

Highlights of Kappa Delta’s new home:

  • 42,000 sq. ft.
  • Increased live-in capacity for 85 members from the previous 63 members
  • Dining room capable of seating 450+ chapter members for meals and events
  • Outdoor dining porch to accommodate members who want to eat, study, or meet outside
  • Restaurant-caliber kitchen designed to adequately serve growing membership, including a weekend access area and a double serving line
  • Banner Room providing space for members to create banners and other crafts in a safe area
  • Various sizes and styles of study rooms throughout the house for members to complete their work
  • TV lounge and living rooms utilized as common areas for members to spend time together
  • Recruitment office with designated space for the preparation and execution of recruitment
  • Chapter room located on the top floor with the ability to seat the entire chapter for chapter meetings, and other events
