Kappa Kappa Kappa

Kappa Kappa Kappa (Tri-Kap) is a local men's fraternity at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. The fraternity was founded in 1842 and is the second-oldest fraternity at Dartmouth College. Tri-Kap is the oldest local fraternity in the United States. It is located at 1 Webster Avenue, Hanover, New Hampshire.

Despite offers to establish additional branches at other institutions, the brotherhood of Tri-Kap has remained a single-school institution for the duration of its history and is not a chapter of any national organization. Today it is one of the many recognized Dartmouth College Greek organizations.

The organization has no affiliation with the post-American Civil War Ku Klux Klan, which formed in 1866, twenty-four years after the founding of Kappa Kappa Kappa, and adopted the Roman-alphabet initials, “KKK”, similar to the Greek letters of Tri-Kap - ΚΚΚ.
