Kappa Alpha Theta added to its history as a “Fraternity of firsts” in 1993 when Zeta Xi was the first chapter of a Panhellenic group established at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 2018, sanctions established by university administrators penalized members of single-gender social organizations, and the members of Zeta Xi sadly relinquished their charter. After an effort by several fraternities and sororities, including Kappa Alpha Theta, the restrictions on single-gendered groups was rescinded in 2020 and groups were allowed back on campus. Zeta Xi was reinstalled on September 11, 2022.
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.
