Kappa Alpha Theta to Reestablish Zeta Kappa Chapter

Category: Fraternity

Kappa Alpha Theta is thrilled to announce the reestablishment of Zeta Kappa Chapter at the University of South Carolina (USC) in fall 2025.

Zeta Kappa Chapter was originally installed on Jan. 27, 1990, and was disestablished on Aug. 27, 2001. After 24 years, Zeta Kappa Chapter is returning home!

Chief Executive Officer Jenni Broughton Schmaltz said, “I was excited about the opportunity to reestablish Zeta Kappa Chapter prior to the extension visit, but after spending the day with administrators, staff, Panhellenic students, and advisors, my enthusiasm grew. I was continually impressed with the support from the administration, the Panhellenic women, the community, and the relationships across councils. I am thrilled for Theta to return to USC and for our future members who get to be a part of such a thriving community!”

Founded in 1801 as South Carolina College, USC is located in Columbia, the capital of South Carolina. USC is the largest university in South Carolina by enrollment and offers more than 350 programs of study, leading to bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees from 14 colleges and schools. More than 8,500 USC students are part of fraternity and sorority life. Theta will join 13 other Panhellenic organizations at USC.
