Alpha Theta Alpha


About

Starting as the Little Sisters of Tau Kappa Epsilon, the founding members of Alpha Theta Alpha broke away from their older brothers to form La Salle University’s first sorority.

In Alpha Theta Alpha, “Sisters Growing Together” is not just our motto; it’s our way of life. Each day, we teach and support one another while creating everlasting friendships. Sisters, old and new, share the special bond of sisterhood that accompanies becoming a part of this sorority.

Sisters of AΘA are known all over campus by professors, administrators, non-Greek friends, teammates, and recognized in our local community. We embrace La Salle’s tight-knit community and always strive to improve in everything we do.

Symbol: White rose, symbolizing elegance and beauty
Mascot: Snowflake, embodying our saying, “Individually unique, together complete”
Jewel: Peridot, traditionally associated with protection and luck
Motto: Adelphi Thallus Hamma, meaning “Sisters Growing Together”
Colors: Kelly green and white

In AΘA, we believe expression is important. That is why instead of naming our pledge classes by the Greek alphabet, we let each pledge class decide their own name together. By doing this, we truly express our saying, “Individually unique, together complete.”

 

 

Philanthropy

Alpha Theta Alpha fundraises and donates to three causes.


Breast Cancer Awareness

The current sisters of Alpha Theta Alpha plan an Annual Walk to End Breast Cancer every fall. They organize this event to raise funds for Fox Chase Cancer Center. It is a 3 mile walk with free refreshments and pizza! There is also baskets and special items that are raffled off at the end of the walk.


Stopping Hunger and Raising Awareness about Eating Disorders

Alpha Theta Alpha teams up with another sorority at La Salle, Delta Phi Epsilon, during Eating Disorder Awareness Week to host and attend events to raise awareness.


B + Foundation

The B+ Foundation fights childhood cancer by raising money through dance marathons, 5Ks, T-shirt sales, and more. They offer financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer nationwide. The B+ Foundation also funds critical, cutting-edge childhood cancer research. Alpha Theta Alpha participates in La Salle’s event every year striving to raise awareness and funds for this incredible foundation.

Br. Gerald Fitzgerald Scholarship

Just as the white rose, the snowflake, and the color Kelly green have become synonymous with Alpha Theta Alpha, so has longtime adviser and friend Brother Gerry Fitzgerald, F.S.C. For more than 20 years, Br. Gerry has provided the women of ATA with the wisdom, guidance, and mentorship that has helped lead to the personal and professional success and achievement of our members. As you know, Alpha Theta Alpha sisters are some pretty impressive women!

In the spirit of continuing to contribute to the La Salle University community, the sisters of Alpha Theta Alpha have decided to establish a scholarship in Br. Gerry’s name for a current La Salle student in ATA . Many of our sisters would not have been able to attend La Salle if not for the scholarships they received.
