About KDR at Coumbia
KDR's Nu Alpha chapter at Columbia was founded on May, 1 1982.
The chapter is currently housed at 548 W. 114th St.
It is known colloquially as the "basketball frat" because of the basketball team's membership in the house. Not all basketball players are brothers and roughly half of the brothers are not on the basketball team.
Recently its membership has diversified to include members of the varsity golf, tennis, football, baseball, fencing and track teams as well as club athletes in rugby and sailing. The chapter is "known on campus for their large dance parties and the predominately female-athlete crowd that their events attract."
Most recently, KDR came under heat when Bwog released screenshots of Varsity Wrestlers, who were members of KDR, making racist, sexist, and generally degrading comments in a Columbia Wrestling GroupMe. A protest erupted outside their house, and a resident of the Intercultural Resource Center hung a sign reading "White Supremacy Lives Here" from their roof. Rumor has it that a Beta brother snatched the sign during the night.
