— Lucy explaining the motto of Kappa Tau Kappa
In the late 1980s, Jenna Gordonson was the president of Kappa. During her senior year, she became friends with a pledge named Brenda Mancini but she soon learned that Brenda was actually cruel and manipulative. Brenda was a bully to many and had no loyalty to the Kappa girls, going as far as sleeping with two other members’ boyfriends.
Jenna left Brenda a voicemail one night, telling her that she was cut from Kappa. Brenda took the voicemail as a prank and arrived to the Aerobics for Alzheimer's fundraiser the next day. Jenna decided to make it clear that Brenda was no longer a Kappa by announcing it on a megaphone, making sure everyone knew Brenda had no ties to Kappa.
The night after, Brenda broke into Kappa to steal her initiation candle and to hang up a banner that said horrible things about the Kappa girls. But Brenda was drunk off of wine coolers and fell off the roof of Kappa house, falling to her death.
After Brenda's death, Jenna tried to cut down drinking on Greek Row which was an unpopular opinion to most. She believed that excessive drinking was the reason why so many Kappa girls were dying the same way Brenda had. Unbeknownst to her, Brenda had become a vengeful spirit that was causing the Kappa girls to die similarly to how she had.
