Kappa Pi Art Fraternity
Art Faculty sponsor, Jim Meaders, found four students interested in applying to Belmont Student Affairs for approval to organize a Kappa Pi chapter at Belmont. That first step is required by Kappa Pi before a chapter can be established. Katie Boatman, the first Belmont chapter President, took on this task and submitted all of the application materials to BSA and met with them about the organization. The group was approved in late September and formal application was then submitted to form a Belmont chapter of Kappa Pi. The official letter of acceptance is dated October 5, 2010. We are the Eta Phi Chapter and the 200th chapter of Kappa Pi.
