In 2003, the Fraternity welcomed Eta Lambda Chapter with members who are students at Santa Clara University. The University, founded in 1851 as Santa Clara College, is California’s oldest institution of higher learning, established on the site of an original California mission located near San Francisco Bay. In 1961 women were accepted, and Santa Clara became the first coeducational Catholic university in California.
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.
