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 in 1870 at DePauw University.  Today, Theta has grown to encompass more than 130 college chapters and more than 250,000 initiated members.  Embracing the motto of Leading Women, Theta encourages personal excellence and leadership on our campuses, in our communities, and throughout professional life.

When I arrived on campus, I wasn’t sure that a sorority would be for me. Theta at MIT has dispelled every TV and movie stereotype of sorority life.  I found an organization that shares my core values.  This chapter is a diverse group of women who strive to excel in every aspect.  Our sisters are open-minded, and we create an environment where all people are accepted and welcomed. These women are hardworking, passionate, thoughtful, and selfless, and I am honored every day to be a part of this organization.  We support one another in both academics and extracurriculars.  When a Theta is presenting her research, leading her sports team, organizing a community service event, or performing on stage, sisters are always in the crowd cheering.

Joining Theta has given me a community and a home.  When I walk through Green Hall, I see sisters helping one another on problem sets, eating cookie dough with their family lines, and discussing their futures.  I am inspired each day by the women of Theta, and of the Panhellenic community.

I'm grateful to call the women of Kappa Alpha Theta my sisters.  Please feel free to explore our website to learn more about our chapter, or reach out to me with any questions.
