In 1880, a local society, Theta Gamma Chi at Simpson College in Iowa, became the first local society to be brought into the Theta fold. After a series of religious revivals in the local community in early 1891, interest waned among then-chapter members. The charter was returned.
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. We take this opportunity to recognize some of our more notable sisters.
