In 1870, four women at Indiana Asbury College in Greencastle, Indiana, formed a fraternity for women seeking a college education. These pioneers chose a Greek name, wrote a constitution, and designed a badge signifying their aspirations — thus founding Kappa Alpha Theta.
From the very beginning, Theta alumnae have distinguished themselves in their careers and their volunteer endeavors. In fact, some are so well-known that they’re household names, and many have the distinction of being the first women in their professional fields. The archives takes this opportunity to recognize some of our more notable sisters.
