Kappa Alpha Theta
We’ve been doing this since our founding in 1870, when women accounted for only .007 percent of college students. In establishing Kappa Alpha Theta, our founders created a women’s fraternity in which they could learn, grow, and be part of something larger than themselves. In her later years, Bettie Locke Hamilton, one of our founders, wrote, “We realized somehow that we weren’t going to college just for ourselves, but for all the girls who would follow after us, if we could just win out.” There are many organizations we can join as collegians and alumnae. But Theta isn’t like other organizations. Our members are different: we aren’t afraid to stand out, to make a difference together. We are women supporting women, and we inspire one another to be our best selves.
