Alumnae Alumnae Alumnae


Membership in Theta—whether we’re alumnae or collegians—challenges us, supports us, and makes us better people. At every age and every stage, Thetas seek opportunities to learn, grow, and give back to those around them.

Find an Alumnae Group

Although most members join Kappa Alpha Theta as collegians, Theta sisterhood is not merely a college experience. Our ritual, our ideals of individual achievement and work for the common good, our shared experiences of service, scholarship, and sisterhood: all these build a lifelong link of sisterhood between each of us. Joining a Theta alumnae group is one way to continue your active participation after graduation.

Alumnae chapters offer a variety of programs and events, including community involvement, networking opportunities, philanthropic projects, social events, and meetings with themes or guest speakers. Many alumnae chapters also offer "special interest" groups, such as a downtown lunch group, a gardening group, or a recent graduates group.

An alumnae circle is less structured than a chapter. Members may meet for periodic lunches or to enjoy a common interest, such as filling backpacks for CASA kids, attending plays, forming a book club, and playing cards.

    By choosing to show up consistently at the LA Thetas events in my 20s, I have built amazing adult friendships, participated in unique experiences, and served the board to further my leadership skills. I can’t imagine the last 11 years of my life without thinking Theta.

Alumna Initiate Process

The Fraternity's alumna initiate program offers membership to exceptional women who, for reasons unknown, were not a part of Greek life as college women. Our laws state that an alumna initiate candidate must identify as a woman, who attended college and for whom a reference form has been received (from a member in good standing), in accordance with the laws of the Fraternity.

Alumnae Chapter & Circle FAQ

An alumnae chapter is a group of Kappa Alpha Theta alumnae that has been granted a charter from Grand Council.

To receive a charter, the group must have at least 15 active members in good standing. To maintain its charter, the group must have at least 10 active members in good standing.
