Kappa Alpha Theta

Kappa Alpha Theta just celebrated its 110th year on the Vanderbilt campus, and our rich history and strong bonds of sisterhood have made us an enduring member of the Greek community. Throughout the year, Theta has been involved in a number of service activities on and around the Vanderbilt campus. For the past seven years, Theta has co-hosted Kickoff Cookoff, a tailgate-style event, benefitting the Fannie Battle Day Home for Children in Nashville. Through Theta’s fundraising efforts, totaling over $100,000, Fannie Battle has successfully moved into a brand new facility where Thetas volunteer each week. This past October, Theta also celebrated our 36th annual Theta Barbecue, where the sophomore class performed their legendary “Stomp.” The event raised money for Kappa Alpha Theta’s national philanthropy CASA, (Court Appointed Special Advocates). Theta also participates in numerous local philanthropy events, including “Light the Night,” a beautiful walk for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society in downtown Nashville. Throughout the year Thetas have also continued to always have a good time together. This year, Theta celebrated our sisterhood with themed parties, such as “My Tie” and “Throwback Thursday,” as well as annual semi-formals. Finally, Thetas enjoyed supporting our ‘Dores in varsity sports, fiercely competing in intramural sports, hanging out at our monthly Theta Catered Lunch, and working hard to maintain our impressive GPAs!
