What does Theta mean to you?
What Theta means to me is a group of supporting and leading women. The diversity of girls brings us all together to uplift and support each other every day. They are the girls you can look up to, go to for any advice, and just a place you can call a forever home. I believe Theta has opened so many doors for me already and can’t wait to see what it will bring me in the future.
Do you have a specific favorite Theta memory?
My favorite Theta memory is running home to my big sister on Bid Day and sharing Theta memories with her my freshman year of college. Those are the moments I’ll never forget!
