Theta Phi Alpha was first established on the campus of the University of Michigan on August 30, 1912. Since its founding, Theta Phi Alpha has flourished as an organization whose 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 friendships.
The founding of Theta Phi Alpha is a story of a group of young friends, not unlike the members of today. They were faced with a myriad of challenges and issues on their campus. By joining together, they provided support and friendship to one another, to meet the challenges that they faced and to create an organization that would enable future generations to share that sisterhood. We recognize the contributions of the sisters who have gone before us and acknowledge that, without them, our experience today would be very different.
After an 11 month period of colonizing, Theta Phi Alpha's Gamma Tau Chapter chartered on July 26, 2009 as the first Chapter of Theta Phi Alpha within the state of Georgia as well as the largest Greek letter organization on the campus of CSU. Today, the Chapter is comprised of 20+ strong young women who are committed to living out the legacy and vision of their beloved founders. The young women of the Gamma Tau Chapter are an extraordinary group of women who come from very diverse backgrounds. Membership brings a life-long circle of family, an amazing social network, an opportunity to develop and cultivate leadership skills, and a tremendously strong sisterhood to support its members in their toughest times. With their own values of leadership, scholarship, friendship, philanthropy, and sisterhood at the forefront of all they do, the Gamma Tau Chapter strives and continues to build stronger sisters and shape women into dynamic leaders both on and off campus. The Chapter’s ongoing mission is to not only to strive to impact the lives of those individuals within the Clayton community, but to also improve and better the lives of every sister by coming together in a deep united front of sisterhood.
