With more than 130 college chapters across the U.S. and Canada and more than 250,000 total initiated members, Kappa Alpha Theta is an important organization making a difference in communities nationally and changing the lives of the women enrolled!  Kappa Alpha Theta has taught us to be powerful women, to achieve personal excellence, and to inspire others to achieve their best.  Theta pushes us to set the bar high to serve the UTD campus and the community – all while having fun and making memories!

  We all have different talents, but what brings us together are the Theta values:  scholarship, service, and sisterhood.  I am proud to say we have exemplified our commitment to excellence in scholarship by earning the highest GPA in Panhellenic history at UTD 17 out of 21 semesters, and achieved the highest GPA in all Greek Life 5 of those 17.  Most impressively, a number of our women are balancing these academics with jobs, internships, and volunteer work.  As a chapter, we raised over $8,000 this past year for our national philanthropies, CASA and the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation by hosting March Madness - a basketball tournament, and our annual 5K Walk/Run.  Additionally, at the Greek Awards this past Spring Theta was awarded the Comet Spirit Award, a new award that was created by the Dean of Students, because our sisters spent time making sandwiches and delivering them to the hardworking construction workers on campus.

  Beyond scholarship and service, and most importantly, this is where we feel at home.  As a member of Kappa Alpha Theta for the last 2.5 years, this sisterhood has left a mark on my college years beyond what I could have imagined.  I have found friends to pull all-nighters in the library with me, had fun dressing up for formals and themed events, spent countless hours decorating rooms for recruitment, baked food for retreats and tailgates, volunteered at a color run, met alumnae in random stores, and most importantly, made lifelong friendships with women who inspire me to be the best version of myself.  I’ve learned that Theta truly is for a lifetime. 

Enjoy browsing through our website to see what makes up this remarkable sisterhood.  I am so humbled and honored to be a member of this family and serve as the current President of the Zeta Upsilon Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta.

Theta Love,

Nicole Dion
