THETA LѲVE

The ladies of the Zeta Phi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California fully embody and live out the philosophy of 1 Corinthians 13:13, "Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love". 

Theta love is strong and pure, creating a sisterhood that supports, nourishes, and grows together to build women with intellectual ambition, leadership, philanthropy, and personal excellence. 

OUR HISTѲRY

Kappa Alpha Theta was founded in 1870 as the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. The sisterhood values our history and our long tradition of leading the way for women's groups and women in higher education. Since it's founding, Theta's across the nation have excelled as students and have gone on to achieve prominence in every professional field.

Being a part of Kappa Alpha Theta begins in college, however transcends beyond the four year experience. The friendships, love, and laughter- everything that makes Theta the wonderful sisterhood it is- continues beyond the university level and lasts for a lifetime.

ON CAMPUS & SOCIAL EVENTS

The core of all Kappa Alpha Theta is love, respect, and lifelong friendships. Sisters can be seen together all over campus-- grabbing coffee, studying, laughing, and supporting each other's events. The ladies of Zeta Phi keep a packed social calendar with philanthropies, sisterhood bonding, Theta Thursday, mixers, big-little events, and formals. 

BIG & LITTLE

One of the strongest bonds of Theta Love stems from the strength and relationship between a BIG and LITTLE. Each new member is given a BIG sister who loves, cherishes, and connects with them. A BIG and LITTLE continuously support and encourage each other not only during their college years, but for a lifetime. 


SISTERHOOD EVENTS

SISTERHOOD RETREAT

Each year our chapter strengthens the bonds of sisterhood with a retreat. In Spring 2017, the ladies of Zeta Phi stayed at Ayres Hotel in Los Angeles for bonding activities, crafting, and delicious foods! 

PARENTS TEA

We love our annual tea party with our parents during Waves Weekend in the Fall! It is a great opportunity to bond with the families we look up to the most and introduce them to our sisters.
