The Eta Kappa Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta was first established on November 18, 2001. As of this past fall, there are 62 women who represent our chapter. Theta is the first Greek-letter fraternity for women and exists to nurture each member throughout her college and alumnae experience. Theta encourages its members to grow in academic excellence, service, leadership, and personal excellence, providing each member with the resources and support to attain these goals. As a sisterhood we use our own resources within our personal relationships as well as those available to us on John Carroll’s campus to create a support system that helps to facilitate growth and excellence.
Our sisters come from many different interests, majors, and backgrounds, but our Theta bond creates a strong friendship that lasts a lifetime. Together through our sisterhood, we create a family like no other at John Carroll. This includes weekly sisterhood activities and monthly socials as well as a dedication to service and our philanthropy causes. However, sisterhood for Theta doesn’t happen once a week or at an annual formal; it’s the daily and constant occurrences that bring us together. Together we live on the second floor of the Greek Dormitory on campus, Hamlin Hall. We have had our floor since 2009, and we are getting a brand new makeover this upcoming summer. Now that you have an idea of what Theta is about, we encourage you to take part in John Carroll’s recruitment process!
