Theta Phi Alpha – Delta Delta Chapter

Theta Phi Alpha was founded at the University of Michigan in 1912 with a vow to provide friendship and support to one another. Now, 110 years later, Theta Phi Alpha has expanded to more than 100 chapters and alumnae associations across the United States.

Theta Phi Alpha aims to be more than just a social organization. The sorority works to advance educational, social and philanthropic interests, provide leadership training, encourage adherence to the highest moral standards and promote lifelong bonds of friendship. Theta Phi Alpha women hold six values near and dear to their hearts: justice, wisdom, loyalty, faith, truth and honor.

The Delta Delta Chapter of Theta Phi Alpha completes a number of philanthropic events on campus to aid the homeless. They work with their national philanthropy, Glenmary Home Missioners, to provide supplies for Camp Friendship, a weeklong summer camp in Mississippi for low-income and homeless children. They also support The House That Theta Phi Alpha Built, which provides support to the homeless in their community. Every year, Delta Delta hosts two large events: Hope for the Homeless Week in the fall and Sapphire Ball in the spring.
