destroying our Greek system?!?
I know this seems random, but i thought it was pretty LOL-worthy for us girls at least.... i was watching this show called The Middleman lastnight and the middleman guy was processed by a sorority girl that is hell bent on destroying our beloved Greek System(!!!) and eventually the world. Did anyone else see it? I know it's so totally nerdy of me to ask!!!
I checked out this guy Layton's MySpace because his song "Dont Stop Living" was on the show and it was good, but I LOVE this one song called "Time Time." ... its kinda like OMD (from the 80s. remember them? lol). What do you think?

Help a Theta Alum?
Hello, Theta Livejournallers! My name is Kris, I am a Gamma Epsilon alum, and am currently a graduate student at Northwestern University, where I research student digital culture. I am running a research project now that surveys college students about their use of social networking software - Facebook, MySpace, Livejournal, etc, - and am looking for students to participate.
Do you have 10 minutes and a keen desire to have your (anonymous) opinion count? Or, do you have 10 minutes and a little sympathy for a broke and tired grad. student? The survey can be found here
and I would really appreciate it if you would click through and complete it.
Thank you so much for your help!

Founders' Day Celebration
Hi Thetas! I hope you all had a wonderful Founders' Day celebration.
My chapter--Delta Sigma at Ball State University, IN--was able to go to the Founders' Day ceremony on Jan 29th at International HQ in Indianapolis. Some of my sisters took pictures that I thought you all might be interested in, if you've never been there:( Read more...Collapse )

Happy Founders Day to all of my Theta sisters! 136 years and still going strong! Wear your letters and show everyone how proud we are to be in such an amazing sisterhood :)

I'm a Theta from UC Berkeley, omega chapter, and I am planning on coming down to San Diego with my roommate for our friend's theta initiation at UCSD. I was wondering if there was any way to stay at the SDSU theta house during the weekend of november 11-13. We are two super tidy and incredibly fun girls! :)

Hi girls! I am part of the newly pledge phi class in the Zeta Rho Chapter at UCSD. IM SO EXCITED!!!

Thanks so much, yall!
Thanks so much for the response so far. It's really amazing!
Just wanted to pass this along from my brother:Thank you so much everyone.
I have been telling people around school that we may recieve assistance from my sisters' college friends, and everyone of them has told me to thank all of them for anything they could give or help with. We really do not have any means of fundraising. True, our high school years will not have been in vain if there is no prom, but it really would mean a whole lot to many many people, especially the graduating seniors.
I was reading the previous comments and I would like to point a few things out. Our school district has 5 schools: high, junior high, and 3 elementaries. One of the elementary schools is totally condemed. One was used a shelter for MANY people, and will take a long time to clean up. All of these schools recieved damage. Although it may seem like through all of this, we would have lost a large percentage of our student body at the high school, we actually have grown, for now we have students from Bay, Waveland, and Pass Christian that are here.
One of my good friends went to a Catholic, all girls school in Bay. She has to come here now, because the only way to get to her school(all in trailers, for it was destroyed) is to go an hour out of the way because there is no more bridge across the bay. In addition, this school and others have lost countless teachers and students, many of which have come to Long Beach.
So you see, to help out in Long Beach, would be to help out people from all over the "west coast", the people that were the hardest hit. Again I thank you, and all of the students and faculty thank you for any help you can give us in this time.

In times of trouble, you lean on your sisters, right?
Hey, girls! I'm so happy to be back in my Theta letters after having been disaffiliated for the past five months (I was a Gamma Chi--rush counselor--for the 2005 Rush Season). I'm proud to say that Epsilon Zeta just pledged (pledge service was last night) about 90 wonderful girls!
With that, I have quite a bit of a plea for you and your chapters...
Think about one of the most memorable events of your high school years: Surely Prom comes to mind for most of you. I'll always remember all the planning and fundraising that went into throwing a night in 2002 that all the juniors and seniors of Long Beach High School would never forget. We all went through it; it's like a rite of passage for high schoolers. Well maybe not, but it's a big deal for them. So I hope you can understand that I've been so excited to help my brother with ideas for fundraisers to help his junior class throw this year's prom (he's VP for his class, and since I was Pr. my year, he always comes to me for ideas and suggestions). Imagine the disappointment in the juniors and seniors faces this year at LBHS when they walked back into school this past Monday (for the first time in about a month) only to find out that this "event-of-all-events" (to the average high school) would not be a reality for them. That's right, no Prom!
Why? Because the administration of the Long Beach School District has decided (with good reason, of course) that the students should not be allowed to fundraise this year. People on the Coast (especially Long Beach, Pass Christian, Bay St. Louis, and Waveland--many cities who have NOT received the media attention, and therefore aid, that bigger cities such as Biloxi, Gulfport, and New Orleans have) are really pressed for money these days, as they are out of homes and work. What they have to give needs to be conserved for survival--and this at the expense of the kids' livelihood.
How great would it be if WE threw these kids a Prom?? And by throw, I mean adopt the junior class of LBHS as a secondary "philanthropy" of sorts and raise the money FOR them so that they could be normal teenagers and throw a Prom!
How special it would be to know that THETA had a part in giving these kids their lives back?!? (And think of all the girls who would just LOVE to be KATs after that ;) ...not that that's the point at all, but gotta plug Theta whenever and wherever, right?! ;) )
..I know this sounds petty, but money is really flowing to help with reconstruction, etc. Let's do something that we can really relate to and really see results from.
It would mean so much to me and to them if we could do this. I think we have the means to make a difference in these kids' lives. Let's please not let this opportunity stand knocking with no answer. (Okay, that was cheesy, but let's please TAKE this opportunity!!)
If your chapter might be interested in helping, I'd be SOO appreciative. I just got word from my brother today, and I have not spoken with our service chair yet, but as she is from New Orleans herself, I'm sure Epsilon Zeta is going to jump into this project with two feet. Besides, Thetas know what it's like to both (a) get all dressed up for a lovely night with great friends and cute boys and (b) help a friend out in a time of need. Now let's show that to the world!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and also for your consideration.

Starting a New Chapter
My friend Casey and I are students at the University of South Florida and we're interested in starting a chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta. We've always admired your incredible sorority and we were hoping and praying that USF had a chapter...but we don't. We only have 8 and our school just accepted ZTA so we're hoping we can get Theta on to our campus.
If you guys can help us go about this, have ideas or suggestions, or anything...please let me know!!
ALSO, IF YOU ARE ALUM OR KNOW ALUM IN THE TAMPA AREA OR ANYWHERE IN FLORIDA AND YOU COULD GIVE US THE CONTACT INFO, it would be appreciated!!
Thank you sooo much, ladies!

I just wanted to share our joy with the rest of the Theta ladies out there -
Eta Theta (University of Central Florida) pledged 48 new members last week!! On our campus, Theta brought in the most new members (biggest pledge class) of all 11 panhellenic sororities! We are ecstatic to get to know and welcome our new members, and if you have any good or unique ideas for activities let us know!
Good luck to all Theta chapters who participate in Fall recruitment! Current Mood: excited

Hello ladies! I was just wondering if there are any Theta alumni in this community, and to which alumni chapter you belong.
I'm having problems contacting my chapter about getting involved!
