Theta Phi Alpha Women's Fraternity was founded in 1912 and has fostered the personal and scholastic growth of women ever since. The Alpha Beta chapter is currently the oldest sorority on Loyola's campus and is proud of the diverse group of women who are a part of their community.
Our mission is to create close comradeship, to advance educational, social and philanthropic interests and leadership training; to encourage spiritual development and adherence to the highest moral standards; and to promote lifelong bonds of friendship. Theta Phi Alpha was founded nationally in 1912 at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Theta Phi Alpha was founded on Loyola's campus in 1959, making it the oldest sorority on campus. The women of Theta Phi Alpha hold fundraisers such as Pie a Theta Phi and Tie Dye with Theta Phi, which are held in the Peace Quad on Loyola's campus. During their annual Grass Volleyball Tournament in Audubon Park, Theta Phi's raise money for their philanthropy, which covers the cost of an entire week of summer camp for underprivileged children. The women of Theta Phi Alpha are active in multiple organizations on Loyola's campus as well as around New Orleans. They immerse themselves in the culture of the city and build unbreakable friendships as they explore the Big Easy.
