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.”
Alpha Theta Alpha fundraises and donates to three causes.
This fall semester, the current sisters of Alpha Theta Alpha planned the First Annual Walk to End Breast Cancer, a student-welcoming and family-friendly 5K stroll through the beautiful Carpenter Park in Horsham, Pa. The event includes a relaxing walk in the fall air, delicious refreshments, and fundraising activities, and 100 percent of the proceeds collected will be donated to the Fox Chase Cancer Center!
Breast Cancer Awareness
Alpha Theta Alpha hosts a Wingfest Contest every spring semester to raise donations for Philabundance, an organization to stop hunger in urban communities. We also team up with another sorority at La Salle, Delta Phi Epsilon, during Eating Disorder Awareness Week to host and attend events to raise awareness.
Stopping Hunger and Raising Awareness about Eating Disorders
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 contribution every single year!
