Kappa Alpha Theta collage

Founded in 1870 at Indiana Asbury (now DePauw University) in Greencastle, Ind., Kappa Alpha Theta is the first Greek-letter Fraternity known among women. In creating Kappa Alpha Theta, our founders were leading the way for women’s groups and for women in higher education. Our members are women of all ages: women who attended college in nearly every US state and Canadian province, women who live all over the world, and women with varied professions, faiths, and ethnic backgrounds.

Kappa Alpha Theta is known as a leading women’s group; our ideas and programs have often been on the cutting edge. "Leader" is not a title conferred or an office held; as individuals and as chapters, Thetas are known for leading in our communities and on our campuses.

Since the founding of Whitman College's chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta in 1956, the women of Delta Delta have been and continue to be a positive presence on Whitman's campus.
