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 138 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, and the Pittsburgh Marathon. For the past few years, Kappa Alpha Theta has been responsible for hosting The Greek God contest, with proceeds to the Washington Women's Shelter. In addition, Epsilon Omega actively supports their national philanthropy CASA that provides legal, financial, and emotional aid to foster children.
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.
