Before the word "Sorority" was ever coined, Kappa Alpha Theta was established in 1870 as the first Greek Letter Fraternity for Women. Our chapter at the University of Nevada, Reno was founded on November 18, 1922. Our founding sisters desired a place where their college lives could be enriched through friendship with people who had similar scholastic goals and personal values. Since then, Kappa Alpha Theta has grown into an international organization with college and alumnae chapters in the US and Canada. Throughout the decades Thetas have continued to strive for excellence socially, morally and intellectually. At the University of Nevada, Reno, Thetas are known for their active involvement on campus including academic and social clubs and intramural sports. Many of our members are involved in various ASUN Clubs where they hold leadership roles. Kappa Alpha Theta prides itself on being diverse in its campus involvement. It has grown in strength and character through the nurture and care of Thetas who were responsive to the friendship and goals for which this Fraternity stands.
