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.
