Welcome to the Beta Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho @ Cornell


Since 1913 the brothers of the Beta Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho have been upholding our motto of Honor Super Omnia at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. We are a group of talented, dedicated, and diverse men from all different backgrounds and all walks of life. Many of our brothers would have never considered joining a fraternity until they met members of Kappa Delta Rho. We pride ourselves on our involvement on the Cornell campus and in the Ithaca community.

Chapter Spotlight: Recruitment

We are proud to announce that the 2018-2019 school year has seen the addition of 10 new brothers to the house (4 in fall, 6 in spring). This is our first year removed from having a national ELI assisting in our efforts and we look forward to continued success and self-sufficiency in future semesters.
