Kappa Kappa Gamma is the third oldest currently active Panhellenic organization at Knox College. The women of Kappa Kappa Gamma officially colonized in 2005 as the local, independent sorority Tau Sigma Omega (TSO). The national organization's first chapter was founded in 1870 not far from Knox at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois.

During the fall of 2006, TSO actively sought to affiliate with a national sorority. The list was narrowed down to two and after visits and presentations from the nationals, the women of TSO unanimously selected Kappa Kappa Gamma.

On March 4, 2007, 31 women signed the charter and were formally installed as charter members (founders) of the Eta Kappa chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. As a young organization, the ladies of TSO were extremely happy with their decision to affiliate with Kappa Kappa Gamma.

Knox College is consistently ranked among the top liberal arts colleges in America, and current Eta Kappa members strive to continue Kappa's motto and tradition of leadership, love, and loyalty. In the organization's short history, Eta Kappa has won awards such as Greek Week, Derby Days, and Outstanding Philanthropy Award. In addition to this, many of the women maintain leadership roles throughout the campus including Student Senate, Club Athletics, Student Health Advocacy Group, Varsity Athletics, Alpha Phi Omega, Union Board, Class Officer Positions, International Club, Habitat for Humanity, and Pre-Med Club.  Seniors are accepted into graduate school, internships, or find careers.  The chapter typically hosts an annual Founder's Day Celebration and alumni events during homecoming as well.

Academic interests of Eta Kappa members are also diverse including majors and/or minors in Biochemistry, Anthropology, Economics, Classics, Psychology, Theatre, Biology, Mathematics, Education, Neuroscience, Gender Women's Studies and Independent concentrations like Business and Society.
