We are so pleased to welcome our newest additions to Gamma Upsilon! Such a lovely new member class!
A letter from our CEO:
We are pleased to welcome you to the official site of the Gamma Upsilon chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at Miami University! Kappa Alpha Theta was founded nationally in 1870 and became the first Greek-letter Fraternity for women. Our chapter was established at Miami University in 1951 with the purpose of extending a lifelong opportunity for social, intellectual, and moral growth to women on our campus and Kappa Alpha Theta has been incredibly successful in doing so. Theta truly is a home away from home for the members in our chapter and has created relationships that will last a lifetime.
In our chapter, each semester is busy with a variety of opportunities and activities. As a chapter, we show our support for both Miami University and Greek life by participating in campus wide philanthropic events. This past fall we created a new philanthropy event, KATwalk, a fashion show event that raises money for Theta’s National Philanthropy, CASA, as well as Theta foundation. In addition to philanthropy, our chapter’s members are involved in over 100 academic, service, athletic and pre-profession groups on campus. Even with so much involvement, our members remember to put school first. Our chapter member’s work together to maintain one of the highest GPA’s amongst all sororities at Miami.
Sisterhood is something we highly value in our chapter and is the bond we hold with one another. Lots of cherished memories come from the sisterhood events and times that we spend together as a chapter. We have many sisterhoods each semester including, Butterfield farms, firesides amongst pledge classes, chapter dinners, and many more. The memories we make together are the ones we hold near and dear to our hearts.
Theta has truly given me memories I will always keep with me, and friendships that will last a lifetime! I am so thankful everyday for the relationships and opportunities Kappa Alpha Theta has brought to me in the past few years. I honestly cannot even explain in words how much this chapter and every member in it means to me!
I hope you enjoy exploring our website and learning just what it means to be a Theta at Miami University. To all of us it truly has been a life changing experience! Feel free to contact me by email at anytime!
