A Message from our Recruitment Officers:
From Kappa Alpha Theta here at Vanderbilt, we would like to welcome you! We are so happy that you’re interested in learning more about Vanderbilt Greek life, and we cannot wait to meet you.
Our Panhellenic community is made up of 12 impressive chapters. By being involved in Greek life at Vanderbilt, you can improve leadership skills by holding an office in your respective organization, give back to the community by participating in various philanthropic activities, connect with a network of alumnae, and much more. Many sorority members will tell you that being involved in Greek life is an integral and invaluable part of their Vanderbilt experience. Recruitment is a great way for a potential new member to get to meet the women of each organization while making friends with other girls within their recruitment groups.
Through weekly chapter dinners, retreats, study hours, and service and social events our Theta sisterhood continually gains more meaning and our friendships grows stronger. Being a part of Kappa Alpha Theta connects our sisters in countless ways through the time we spend together, and we’re so excited to share this with you in the upcoming months. We invite you to attend Kickoff Cook-off and Theta Barbeque and Stomp during the fall.
We hope you are just excited as we are about the upcoming semester and recruitment 2018. Kappa Alpha Theta is not only invested in our university, but in each ambitious and talented girl that Vanderbilt attracts. On behalf of the Alpha Eta chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, we look forward to meeting you throughout the fall semester and especially during recruitment!
See you soon,
Emily Cavalaris, Chief Recruiting Officer
Lucy Maloney, Recruitment Director
