Delmega Society

Delmega Society at the 2017 Reunion and Homecoming Weekend.

Kalamazoo College Delmega Society


Most active at K in the 1950s and 60s the Delmega Society was organized by students as an intellectually-focused group that attracted mostly math and science majors. The “societies” at K were primarily literary, intellectual or social in nature intended to create a sense of belonging among students. They dissolved in the early 1970s.
