Welcome to the Zeta Mu Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at MIT!

Founded in 1870 at DePauw University, Kappa Alpha Theta was the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. 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 our professional lives.

Like all Thetas, I wholeheartedly value having strong and uplifting female role models. Here at MIT, Thetas constantly impress me with their academic success, professional ambition, and awe-inspiring leadership. But they’re not just impressive on paper– I’m always inspired by the outpouring of kindness and compassion that each of my sisters shows to everyone she meets. Although we are a diverse group of women, we share the same core values that help us aim for our goals of social, intellectual and moral growth. We all value the sisterhood we’ve found in Theta, and we’re excited to develop the lifelong friendships we’ve discovered in Theta.

When I came to MIT, I was looking for a group of women who could help bring out the best in me. In Theta, I found that group and so much more. Theta women make me a better person every single day, but they’re also my closest and most trusted friends. They’ve taught me to embrace failure, get back up and keep going. They’ve made sure that in the midst of stress and obstacles, I always remember to take a step back and reserve time for myself. They’ve helped me find the good in every situation. Theta women truly embody what it means to be a sister. I have never felt the level of support, inspiration, kindness or love that I feel every day in Theta. I couldn’t possibly be prouder to represent this outstanding family.  

Theta love and mine,
