Jennifer Stringfield of Brewton was initiated into  the Alpha Sigma Chapter of Kappa Delta Epsilon during ceremonies held last month on the campus of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Alpha Sigma Chapter of Kappa Delta Epsilon is a nationally based honor fraternity started in 1933.
Social fraternities and sororities have been an integral part of student life at The University of Alabama for a long time. Fraternities began forming here in 1847 and as women's enrollment increased, the first sorority chapter was started in 1904. As the University population began to diversify, the first national historically black fraternity and sorority formed on campus in 1974. These organizations have made important contributions to University life and today over 3,200 students – nearly 20 percent of the undergraduate student population at the Capstone – are in the 25 fraternity and 21 sorority chapters.
