Kalakagathia Society
ca. 1917

When the mandatory literary societies were disbanded in 1911, two new societies were organized. One would be ASU's first sorority, the Kalakagathia Society, and the other was the Zetetic society, which took its name from the first society on campus.

Kalakagathia Society, 1917

In the beginning, the goal of the Kalakagathia Society was the study of literature. In 1916, their focus changed to the study of the Camp Fire Girls movement as guardians. Their programs included outdoor observation, first aid, hygiene, games, storytelling and handicraft work. The purpose of this society was recognizing the inherent beauty of common activities like daily work and play.
