Nearly 150 years ago, Kappa Alpha Theta was founded as the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. Our founders recognized dedication, intelligence, and commitment in one another, and they also understood the potential of the college women who would follow in their footsteps. They were leading the way for women in higher education.
In the decades since then, Theta has continued to be recognized as a leading women's group. Our ideas and programs have often been on the cutting edge; as both individuals and chapters, we are known for leading in our communities and on our campuses. We understand that leadership is not an office held or a title conferred. We know that every theta has the capacity to create positive change in herself, in her chapter, in her Fraternity, and even the world.
Being a Theta leads women into a life of friends, experiences, and goals that she might not have had otherwise. Being a Theta leads a woman to personal excellence, offering her ways to become her best self.
