Kappa Lambda Iota

Clio Spring 2019The Clionian Literary Society was founded in 1869 by the first woman to graduate from McKendree College, Edith Flint. We soon developed our Greek letters, Kappa Lambda Iota, and call ourselves Clio for short! As a social sorority, we hold Sisterhood, Loyalty, and Friendship dear to our hearts. In Clio, we make friendships that last a lifetime and have many Alumni to prove it!

One thing important to all Clionians is the research for a cure for breast cancer. We participate in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk during the summer as well as teaming up with CAB to hold McKendree Idol to raise money for research. All proceeds are donated in full! All the fundraising that we do for our sorority gives a portion to the research as well!

But that's not all we do! We also participate in school events--CAB, Homecoming parade, sports games, etc. We have Thanksgiving/Christmas potlucks and gift exchanges and throw an annual Spring Formal where we get to reenact Prom all over again! We also like to throw an Alumni Banquet where we invite former Clionians to sit down, have a meal, and talk about the past.

Now the question is...do you dare to be a Lady in Red?
