Kappa Iota was initially started on the Alma College campus on October 12, 1921, as a literary society. In 1950, it changed to the Kappa Iota sorority. After some difficulty in membership, the sorority disbanded. Though on April 1, 1977 a group of sisters banded together and reinstated the sorority on campus.
The sorority has always focused on building open-mindedness, loyalty, and sisterhood. KI also stresses the individuality of each member. Kappa Iota survives and strives on what each member brings to the sisterhood.
