Let’s Celebrate Theta!

2020 is Theta's Sesquicentennial, a celebration of our 150th year. We want to acknowledge and celebrate this milestone in Theta history. Perhaps you can attend a Founders Day celebration or reach out to a Theta sister you haven't talked to since your college days. Even acknowledging your Theta pride with something small is a celebration. Because we truly want every member to be a part of Theta's 150th year, we have created official specialty items for you can shop and celebrate with!

#Theta150

No matter how you celebrate, be sure to take a moment to thank Bettie for being a visionary, taking a stand, and establishing a supportive organization for women that is just as strong today as it was in 1870. 

First Greek-letter Fraternity for Women

Indiana Asbury admitted female students for the first time in the fall of 1867, and Bettie was among the first five women to enter the college. Learn more about Bettie and Theta's history below.
