Kappa Alpha Theta has a long history as the first Greek-letter fraternity known among women founded on the principles of attaining the highest scholarship, spreading the widest influence for good, and developing our members as leading women. Please visit the campus Panhellenic’s website for more information regarding the recruitment process and to register for primary recruitment. Our chapter is so excited to meet all potential new members (PNMs) throughout the primary recruitment process and cannot wait to welcome a new member class this year! 

Involvement in Greek life provides students with a wide variety of opportunities to develop leadership skills, achieve academically, and increase involvement in the community through various service and philanthropy activities. Additionally, Greek membership can help make the transition to college smoother and more enjoyable for students by providing a support system found through the camaraderie of the Greek community.

A LETTER FROM our recruitment chairs, jenny schneider and erin haydon


We are so excited to be this year’s Chief Recruiting Officer and Recruitment Chair for the Epsilon Psi Chapter, and we cannot wait to get started! We pride ourselves on our commitment to service, our contributions to the Panhellenic community, our exemplary leadership, and our focus on academics. Each year, adding an amazing new member class expands our opportunities in each of these areas, allowing us to keep growing together as a chapter!

The most thrilling part of recruitment is feeling the incredible love that defines our sisterhood; from the outside you can see it, and from the inside you can feel it. Once in Theta, this strong, unique bond of sisterhood is felt by each and every one of our members. We can always be found supporting one another at an IM game, studying together at the library, laughing our way through campus, or living together abroad. We truly do care for one another in an indescribable way and we hope to one day share that with you!

The best part about Theta, however, is that these relationships never stop. They continue to grow into lifelong friendships that give each member an incredible network of caring sisters to always provide love and support. The women of Theta are a group of motivated, diverse, and involved women, and we cannot wait to let you see for yourself what our sisterhood is all about!

What is a legacy?
A Theta legacy is defined as a daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, or sister of a Kappa Alpha Theta. Stepdaughters, step granddaughters, step great-granddaughters, and stepsisters are considered legacies if their family considers them as such and if the family asks that they be considered as such on the legacy introduction form. These women all deserve special consideration.

There is no such thing as an indirect legacy (i.e., cousin, niece, etc.), and such persons are not given special consideration. However, we recognize that they may have special knowledge of and interest in Kappa Alpha Theta and are warmly welcomed and recruited.


Kappa Alpha Theta chapters initiate their new members between 4-6 weeks after Bid Day. This program covers the following topics:

  • Zero-tolerance hazing policy and risk management
  • Theta history
  • Scholarship
  • Leadership
  • Personal excellence
  • Ritual appreciation

In addition to these topics, Theta new members also complete Greek-Wise. Kappa Alpha Theta was the first women’s fraternity to endorse and require that all members complete online alcohol education. The Greek-Wise program educates students about behaviors that compromise personal safety and challenges preconceived social norms. Tailored to the needs of fraternity and sorority collegiate members, Greek-Wise is an interactive, online, educational program that focuses on alcohol education, hazing, and sexual assault, helping students make safer and healthier decisions.
