“Sisterhood is many things. It’s a warm smile on a cold and rainy day, a friendly hug, a cheerful hello… It’s all that a good and lasting friendship is, only better. It’s treasured. It’s sacred. It’s knowing that there will always be someone there for you. It’s dreams shared, and goals achieved. It’s counting on others and being counted on. It is real."
"I wanted to be in a sorority to challenge myself to be part of something unique at Westminster. Shortly after starting the recruitment process I realized that Theta was going to be that place. Theta has pushed me to be a better student, a better leader, and a better friend. I don't think my experience through college would have been nearly what it was without Theta. The opportunities it brought to me and the friendships the organization brought to me are things I wouldn't have gotten any other way."

"I chose Theta because I saw in all of the girls a sense of belonging far deeper than a title of being 'sisters'. I could tell they were the kind of girls that when I showed up in my baggy sweatpants they would welcome me with open arms. They were the kind of girls who would eat a whole dominos pizza with me while I stressed over a final. They were the kind of girls I wanted as bridesmaids one day. And so far in my career, they have proved themselves to be not only those kinds of girls, but even more amazing. I wouldn't trade a second of Theta for anything!"

"When I first got to college I thought I was set on the decision that Greek life wasn’t for me. I wanted to ease into life at school, and I was afraid of taking on too much. I was already set to play softball in the spring, and I wanted to maintain good grades like I had in high school. However, I did want to branch out and meet new people so I decided to go to the meetings about recruitment and talk to some of the women who were already apart of the Greek organizations. All of the people I talked to were so positive and welcoming that I knew I had to at least go through recruitment and see if being a part of Greek life was for me.I am so grateful that I chose to go Greek and found my home at Kappa Alpha Theta with all of my incredible sisters. I knew the first day that I talked to the women in this sorority that it felt like home. These women had the same passions and drive for excellence in all areas of life, and without their support and guidance my freshman year of college would’ve been way different and way less enjoyable than it was. I thought I knew what I wanted to do coming into college and then I found out that interests change and it is ok to switch your major. With the encouragement from my sisters I changed my major from biology to English with a minor in Journalism. I was terrified to make such a big jump, but I had love and support from all around me. I knew that if I didn’t succeed or enjoy it that I would have a support system stronger than ever behind me, ready to catch me if I fell. After I made this decision my classes, school, and life in general became much more fun for me to experience!"

"I chose Theta because when I asked myself who I wanted to be in four years, the answer was evident. I wanted to be someone who had a reputation of success within the classroom, held leadership positions across campus, and contributed significant service to my community. I wanted to be someone who had the support and sisterhood of women who would do anything to help at any time of the day and under any circumstances. I wanted to be someone who could walk into a sister's apartment unannounced and be welcomed with open arms. I wanted to be someone who was always allowed to be myself. I wanted to challenge myself to learn and grow by obtaining the values and upholding the expectations that could propel me into a better person as well as a "Leading Woman" after college. Yes, when I asked myself who I wanted to be in four years, the answer then was as easy as it would be today: I want to be a Theta."

"I chose Theta because it was the only place I didn't feel like I needed to be someone else. There was no pressure or anxiety to act a certain way and it was so inviting. I found so much of myself in Theta. To me, sisterhood means being surrounded by people who demand the very best of you and seek for you to find it in yourself. It's the constant support of each other no matter the circumstances. Also, always being willing to go on Sonic runs. That is true sisterhood, as well."
