Welcome to the Beta Sigma Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta on the campus of Southern Methodist University!
Beta Sigma Thetas can be seen everywhere on SMU’s beautiful campus in Dallas, TX. We excel in the work we dedicate to our accounting, biology and communications majors, just to name a few!. But Thetas are also a visible presence outside the classroom. We give back to the school community through participation in Relay for Life, Student Foundation, and Panhellenic Council. We can also be spotted on the pom squad and the soccer, cheer, polo and cross country teams. Our members truly do it all, balancing school, community service, internships, jobs and an exciting social calendar!
Life as a Theta at SMU enriches our members’ college experiences. In the fall, we enjoy hosting our signature philanthropy event Theta 5k. Last held in September, 2016, this event raised $48,000 for Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). We also love to “boulevard” with our Theta sisters and the rest of SMU before cheering on the Mustangs at football games. To connect with the rest of the SMU student body, we participate in annual Homecoming festivites like Rock-the-Vote, CANstruction, Field Day, and the parade on game day. This year, our very own Courteney Demore was runner up for Homecoming Queen! We also co-host two fall formals called "Southern Comfort," and "Kite-and-Key."
At the start of the spring semester, we excitedly await new members during formal recruitment in January. After recruitment, Theta spirit is in full swing with Big Sis Little Sis Reveal, Initiation of our new members, and our spring formal! We also all come together as a chapter to support SMU Relay for Life in March. At the last Relay for Life event (April 2016) we raised over $45,000 and were the number 1 fundraiser at SMU! Additionally, Thetas have served as the event chairs for three years in a row! Throughout the entire year we all continue to forge lifelong bonds with one another and grow into society's leading women.
Every day I continue to be amazed by all that this chapter has and will accomplish. Our members are truly amazing always aiming for the highest scholarship, personal growth, and leadership potential. I can’t say enough how truly blessed I am to call myself a Beta Sigma Theta. Enjoy browsing our website and I hope you can also see how being an SMU Theta is the greatest experience.
Theta Love and Mine,
Mackenzie Harper, Beta Sigma President
