Calling all Volunteers!

There are always spots opening up on House Corp committees, the Eta Kappa Advisory team, and the DG@2300 fundraising team! If you are able and willing to lend a hand, we would be happy to take you and will show you the ropes in how to best support the fraternity. If interested, please contact Holly at hmw120@gmail.com!

In addition, we are collecting donations for Final Exam Packs for the collegians. Water, pens, candy, snacks, anything is great! If able to donate, please contact Holly at the email above. You can either ship it or deliver to her.


As you can see from below, Eta Kappa-NC State had a FANTASTIC recruitment year! They welcomed 55 new members and are now a chapter 173 women strong. They brought in FOUR DG legacies!

Overall, NC state had a quota of 53, with 500 women placed in chapters. Average chapter size is 169.

A special THANK YOU to all of our alumnae that assisted with Recruitment weekend. The chapter was so thankful for your help and we are grateful we have awesome alumnae like you that are willing to take the time to support the chapter in this way!
