Call me a dork, but today I am black and gold through and through. Yes, I was a sorority girl in college and belong to the fabulous house of Kappa Alpha Theta. You may remember from my proposal blog post the Gamma Tau house at the University of Tulsa is where I met my fiancé, and where he proposed. So today’s blog post is all Theta! Kappa Alpha Theta was founded in 1870 as the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. We value our history and take pride in our four founders, who were truly visionary. Our vision statement—Kappa Alpha Theta is the organization that provides the finest and most rewarding membership experience—is based on our core purpose and values. Our purpose is to support members to learn, grow, and excel, and our core values are personal excellence, friendship/sisterhood, scholarship, service, and leadership. It was January 27, 1894 the first recorded mention of an event called “Founders Day” was held at the Alpha Beta Chapter (Swarthmore, outside Philadelphia). Happy Founders Day Theta’s! Put your best dress, gorgeous heels and great accessories on. Send out black and gold invitations, set the table and pop open the bubbly because over 100 years of celebrating our founders is worth it’s own blog post!
Theta Love and All Mine!
