Another is Phi Delta Kappa, a professional educators organization. It is the same name of another group ironically founded at W. & J. in 1874. It expanded to five chapters, but after the other four closed for various reasons the Alpha chapter revived the then defunct Alpha chapter of Phi Gamma Delta in 1881 and it was out of business.
Out of curiosity, do you what chapter/s or Psi Upsilon this is, because I never heard of KPL outside of the Asian Interest Sorority.

The Kappa Phi Lambda chapter at University of Michigan. It was founded in 1865 and merged with the existing Psi U chapter in 1870. The Mt. Union group went to Delt, Northwestern to Sig Chi and Denison to Beta. Westminster went to local status and years later to Sigma Nu.

I found an interesting Facebook group regarding Alpha Psi fraternity at Sonoma State and Alpha Psi sorority at UC Santa Cruz. I know the sorority has been around a while longer and the two are not related.

I think you mean Omega Phi Beta. they're the green and gold ones with the sunflowers.

there is a national sorority called Sigma Lambda Gamma and a Canadian sorority with the same name. the American one was founded in 1990 and the Canadian one in 2004. check out the history section on the Canadian website. rofl

WTF! They totally aired their dirty laundry, said they don't value academics (basically) AND knowingly copied the name of another group. How bizarre!

I wonder what do NIC, NPC and NPHC do with their Canadian chapters. Are they exempt from academic criteria?

Honestly I think it was just a BS excuse because some of them didn't have a 3.0. If that was really true, there wouldn't be any honor societies in Canada.

Absolutely not. They just aren't recognized by the schools. No GLO would establish a chapter in which they had zero control over membership selection.

Not in the same ballpark as the rest of the same names, but there is a local (socal) Kappa Zeta Phi that goes by "Kappa". There is also a Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter there so the two sometimes get confused.
