Kappa Alpha Theta, the first Greek-letter women’s fraternity, was founded to support collegiate women in the early days of coeducation. Today, Theta continues to empower its members and enrich their college experience through commitment to scholarship, sisterhood, service, and personal excellence. At the Alpha Mu chapter, we exemplify these values every day. We encourage our members to learn, develop, and excel through leadership and sisterhood, whether it is on campus, in the classroom, or in the community.
Thetas can be found in many corners of campus. Our members are involved in organizations such as Tour Team, Summer Welcome, Outreach, Student Ministries, MizzouThon, Alumni Association Student Board, Mizzou Alternative Breaks, Mizzou for Malawi, Mizzou Student Foundation, along with many other groups in different academic disciplines. We also have members leading committees for campus wide events such as Homecoming, Greek Week, Rockin’ Against Multiple Sclerosis, and Caring for Columbia. We are very proud to have members annually recognized by the most prestigious groups on campus such as Mizzou ’39, Omicron Delta Kappa, Mystical Seven, and Mortar Board.
In the fall, Theta hosts an annual flag football tournament during our philanthropy week as well as a pancake brunch. In the spring, we host Capture the Kite, a co-ed tournament, and CASA Carnival, a late night carnival themed dinner at our home. This past year, our chapter raised over $14,500 for CASA, a court appointed guardian program internationally sponsored by Kappa Alpha Theta, and the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation. With the great passion and imagination of each our members, we hope to achieve even more in the upcoming years.
Besides our internal philanthropy benefitting CASA, Theta also participates in community and Greek-sponsored philanthropies. We are the only Greek organization to be Partners in Education (PIE) with the Columbia Public School District. This is a mutually beneficial relationship between Thetas and the students at Russell Elementary School in the Columbia Public School District. Through this partnership, our members have the opportunity to help Russell Elementary students as classroom assistants and as buddies on special days such as Valentine’s Day. Many members enjoy volunteering at Russell's annual festivals each year as well. This is one way of many that we are able serve the community with our sisters.
Theta is much more than simply a college experience; it is a home away from home. Theta serves as a place to grow into a woman of intellect and integrity, and to form friendships that reach far beyond the walls of 603 Kentucky Boulevard. The scholarship, leadership, and love that members develop while in Theta will follow them into their future and impact them forever.
