The Kappa Phi Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha was founded at Christopher Newport University on April 23, 2005.
At our International Office there is a "Chain of Chapters". Each chapter chartered by ZTA has a silver link in the chain with their chapter name and founding dated inscribed upon it. Our chapter, Kappa Phi, is the 235th link.
Kappa Phi's symbol is the Flamingo; it is not a nationally recognized symbol, but rather is used just by us. It symbolizes that we can stand alone or fly in a flock.
Kappa Phi Actively supports our national service projects by being a major donor to the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. Every year our chapter's "Pinktober" raises thousands of dollars, which is all donated towards our philanthropy.
Our chapter supports the community by performing monthly service projects. It is a requirement of every member of Kappa Phi to serve for 5 hours in our community per semester. We take pride in supporting our local community. Sisters have volunteered with the Peninsula Foodbank, Heroes and Helpers, and several other community organizations.
