Kappa Delta Psi
Michigan Tech Local Fraternity

Founded at Michigan Tech in 1921 by veterans of World War I, Kappa Delta Psi Fraternity was incorporated in February of 1946. Excelling in social, athletic, and academic activities, the KD's form a solid, close-knit group to provide a friendly atmosphere and leadership capabilities for members. In the past, the fraternity was instrumental in the establishment of the Inter-Fraternity Association, the governing body for the fraternities on campus. Each year the KD's place their share of members on varied organizations on campus. The athletic skills typical of many of the members of Kappa Delta Psi were showcased recently as many members were on the 2004 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Football Championship team. Also, many of the alumni were a part of the Michigan Tech NIC Football and WCHA Hockey Conference Championship teams, along with capturing many overall Intramural trophies which decorate the Kappa Delta Psi house. Now solidly entrenched in their residence, the men of Kappa Delta Psi plan to continue their success in activities, and to play a dominant role as campus leaders at Michigan Tech.
