About Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc...

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated began as vision of nine college students on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. in 1908. The sorority has grown into a union of thousands of college-trained women who are bound by a powerful mystique, a real moving factor in the lives of students in more than four hundred institutions of higher learning; it is one of the most solvent corporations in the world today.

The Pi Lambda chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was established at DePauw University on March 23, 1991 by "The Pearls of DePauw:" Joy Armstead, Robin Batties, Ronda Henry and Gina Ross. These first four women set out to exemplify the spirit of AKA.
