Meet our founders. Learn how, together in 1870, they founded Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity.

  • I take this opportunity to thank each and all of you for what you have done to make K.A.Θ. what it is today, for without the efforts of all girls who followed us, our struggles in trying to found a fraternity for women would have been in vain.
