Welcome to the Zeta Mu Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at MIT!
Kappa Alpha Theta was the first Greek-letter fraternity for women when it was founded nearly 150 years ago at DePauw University. Today, Theta has grown to encompass more than 130 college chapters and more than 250,000 initiated members. The national Theta network creates an opportunity for women to work towards our fraternity’s goals of social, intellectual, and moral growth.
Coming into MIT, I was unsure about my decision to join a sorority. Everything I knew about Greek life I learned from TV and movies, and I wasn't sure I would fit in since I didn't own a single pearl necklace or pink skirt. Despite my reservations, everyone I met encouraged me to try recruitment, and I fell in love with Theta in the recruitment room. Today, I know I made the right decision to join the Panhellenic community and Theta.
What I saw during recruitment freshmen year, and what I continue to see now, is a group of well-rounded, intelligent, passionate, inspiring women. On campus here at MIT, you'll find Thetas in a wide range of activities. We are team captains, undergraduate researchers, volunteers, and musicians. Alumni of the Zeta Mu chapter are entrepreneurs, MD/PhD candidates, surgeons, and Rhodes Scholars.
The connecting thread between this amazingly diverse group of women is Kappa Alpha Theta. We have created a strong sisterhood, and when we're not studying or pursuing our other passions, we're spending time together at formals, retreats, or just hanging out in Green Hall.
I'm so proud to call the women of Kappa Alpha Theta my sisters. I have found such wonderful support in Theta, and in the Panhellenic community. Feel free to explore our website to learn more about our chapter or reach out to me with any questions.
