Message from the Chapter President

Default Profile Hi everyone I’m Sydney! I am beyond proud to lead this group of over 130 incredible women. This chapter promotes an environment filled with generosity, support, and friendship. Being a Theta leads a woman to not only become her best self but to motivate others to excel as well. Our four integral ideals are Intellectual Curiosity, Leadership Potential, Commitment to Service, and Personal Excellence. These values that we were founded on allow us to share a special bond that is unique to our sisterhood. Founded in 1870, Theta was the first Greek-letter fraternity established for women. Being a Theta extends beyond Storrs, CT because it allows sisters to create lifelong friendships.Having a home at the University of Connecticut is so special to us, and the memories our chapter makes are everlasting. Our philanthropy, CASA, allows us to support a network committed to providing a voice to children experiencing abuse and neglect locally and nationally.
