In 2020, Kappa Alpha Theta celebrated 150 years of sisterhood. We celebrated in all the ways a global pandemic would allow: limited-edition jewelry, a short film about our founding, and even a special coffee table book. We would love to know how you celebrated, no matter how small or socially-distanced, via the Share Your Theta Story web page.
One thing's for sure: While decades have passed since 1870, Theta love and support remains stronger than ever. Here's to the next 150 years of Kappa Alpha Theta.
The story of Theta's founding has been an inspiration to Thetas everywhere — how four remarkable young women went against the grain to do something that had never been done before. We rewind the clock to take you back to that fateful moment.
The 2020 Jewelry Collection features a badge that is an exact replica of founders badges from 1870. Also included are badge guards in three designs and metal grades, plus a 150th anniversary dangle, and customized necklaces from Kyle Cavan.
Official Kappa Alpha Theta merchandise helps members celebrate Kappa Alpha Theta's 150th anniversary with comfortable t-shirt (both short- and long-sleeved) and sweatshirt designs.

150 Years of Kappa Alpha Theta
In 2012, Grand Council appointed a committee of women and tasked them with creating a plan for Kappa Alpha Theta’s sesquicentennial celebration. To celebrate this monumental milestone, Kappa Alpha Theta published a book. 150 Years of Kappa Alpha Theta takes a comprehensive look at our rich history through archival images and artifacts. Using a decade-by-decade structure, the 96-page hardcover book includes badge and jewelry photographs, historical vignettes, chapter establishments, quotes, and much, much more.
We wanted all Thetas to help celebrate Theta’s sesquicentennial. Kappa Alpha Theta created collections for members. Whether it's having a 150th sticker on your planner, wearing the dangle on your badge, or using the 150th notecards to connect with your sisters, it’s all a form of celebration.
05/04/2020 Kappa Alpha Theta marked the beginning of her sesquicentennial year on January 27, 2020. Thetas from around the world joined to celebrate this monumental milestone and the Fraternity which links them all through sisterhood. Consider trying some of these 10 ways to celebrate.
