Kappa Alpha Theta takes pride in being the first Greek-letter society for women with principles and methods like those of men's fraternities. Founded on January 27, 1870 at Indiana's DePauw University, Thetas celebrate 142 years with approximately 125 college chapters across the United States and Canada.
Sisters of Kappa Alpha Theta play an active role in both the college and the community. Kappa Alpha Theta is also known for its leadership role in the community. We participate in the March of Dimes Walk-a-thon, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, tutoring at Washington High School, and work for various work study positions on campus, such as Admissions, Career Services, and Phone-a-Thon. For the past three years, Kappa Alpha Theta has been responsible for hosting their annual Dodgeball Tournament, with proceeds going to CASA, their national philanthropy. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) provides legal, financial, and emotional aid to foster children. The sisters are very involved throughout the campus, holding various leadership positions in clubs and honor societies, such as Gamma Sigma Alpha, Resident Assistants, Panhel, and Spanish/French Club.
Epsilon Omega chapter strives for academic excellence. Nationally recognized for outstanding scholarship, Thetas maintain one of the highest grade point averages on the W&J campus. Thetas are members of many honor societies such as Phi Beta Kappa and Order of Omega, in addition to being Alpha and Beta scholars. Kappa Alpha Theta offers scholarships to active sisters as well as its alumnae that pursue additional degrees.
