Visiting Greencastle: Where Theta Began

Kappa Alpha Theta was founded at DePauw University (then known as Indiana Asbury) in Greencastle, Indiana, about an hour west of Indianapolis, via westbound Interstate 70 and north IND 231. Thetas often walk the campus when visiting Greencastle.

We have created a walking/driving tour of the essential sites connected to Theta’s history. If you plan to visit the Alpha Chapter house, please reach out in advance. Remember, there may not be anyone available during the summer months or during school breaks.

If you do visit, please share pictures on social media and tag #ThetaHistory.
