Gamma Xi Chapter

University of California, Los Angeles

Welcome to Kappa Kappa Gamma at University of California, Los Angeles! On behalf of the entire Gamma Xi chapter, I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope that this platform can help you gain some insight into our chapter and what our members are all about. Beyond that, I hope you’ll be able to see how Kappa has impacted my personal collegiate experience into the best four years I could have imagined.


KKG is an organization that seeks to build life-long bonds of friendships between our members, as well as endless support, opportunities, respect for one another, and an understanding of our values. I would describe our Gamma Xi chapter as one which seeks to empower all Kappas through genuine connections with women coming from all different backgrounds. The social justice movements in recent years have made our organization as a whole reflect on the historically racist ties of Greek Life, and we have committed to making changes within our own chapter and the greater Panhellenic community at UCLA and beyond. 


As the President of the Gamma Xi chapter, I feel proud of our members and our sorority as a whole. My love for Kappa strengthens as I see our members grow into determined, kind-hearted Panhellenic women throughout our college careers. I am forever grateful for what our members have done for me, especially after having a tumultuous transition into collegiate life. I am so grateful to be in a house surrounded by women who are eager to get to know you better and who are constantly adding kindness and laughter into my life. Wearing our letters is more than just being a part of our chapter, it is a reminder to push yourself to make a difference not only in the Panhellenic community and at UCLA, but to strive to make a positive impact on the world. Kappa is about giving your best effort for the good of yourself and of those around you. It is truly an honor and a privilege to be a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. 


Feel free to explore our website and discover some of the things that Gamma Xi has to offer. From Saturdays spent at the Rose Bowl or volunteering with local schools to adventuring through LA together, UCLA Kappas are always having a blast. I hope our website will be able to give you a sense of what it is like to be a Kappa at UCLA! Enjoy!




Kappa Love And Mine,

Payton Smith, Gamma Xi President
