Join Kappa Alpha Theta in celebrating the lifelong commitment and promises we've made to each other during National Ritual Celebration Week (NRCW). We encourage our members to explore what it means to be a values-based organization with a ritual, and how we can strive to live in accordance with these values every day.

Phi Mu Fraternity announced the first National Ritual Celebration Week in 2011, to create awareness of the importance of ritual throughout our collegian and alumnae members' lifetime membership.

Here are some ideas on how you can celebrate throughout the week:

  • "Wear Your Letters on Your Heart" on International Badge Day, Mon., March 2, 2015. Share photos of you and your Theta/Panhellenic sisters wearing your badges via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, or email socialmedia@kappaalphatheta.org. Tag your posts with #BadgeDay15.

  • Read, reflect, and comment on Fraternity Ritualist Amy Hayner Kates' blog "Five Ways to Apply Ritual to Your Everyday Life," to be posted next week. Don't forget to tag #kappaalphatheta and National Ritual Celebration Week, #NRCW, in your posts!

  • Lead one or more of the NRCW activities for your council and/or college or alumnae chapter, provided by Phi Mu Fraternity.

  • Watch any of the ritual videos, including "Our Common Bond," with your chapter and/or Theta friends (login required).

  • Change your social media cover photo to show others you're celebrating. Find a NRCW and Badge Day cover photo on Theta's Facebook page.

To increase awareness and encourage eating disorder treatment, Kappa Alpha Theta is offering anonymous online eating disorder screenings through Screening for Mental Health's CollegeResponse National Eating Disorders Screening Program. The educational initiative coincides with National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (February 22-28), an annual campaign to bring public attention to the critical needs of people with eating disorders and their families.

The anonymous and confidential screening is designed to help students examine any thoughts or behaviors that may be associated with eating disorders. After completing the self-assessment, students are provided with helpful resources and treatment information through Kappa Alpha Theta if necessary.

Some common eating disorder signs and symptoms include:

  • Frequent comments about feeling "fat" or overweight

  • In general, behaviors and attitudes indicate that weight loss, dieting and control of food are becoming primary concerns

  • Skips meals or takes small portions of food at regular meals

  • Hides body with baggy clothes

  • Evidence of binge eating, including disappearance of large amounts of food in short periods of time or lots of wrappers and containers indicating consumption or large amounts of food

  • Maintains excessive, rigid exercise regimen—despite weather, fatigue, illness or injury—because of the need to "burn off" calories

  • Drinks excessive amounts of water and/or uses excessive amounts of mouthwash, mints and gum


Anonymous self-assessments and treatment information are available at screening.mentalhealthscreening.org/kappaalphatheta.
