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 are seen excelling in the classrooms of various majors such as accounting, biology, communications, and many many more. Thetas also give back to the school community by participating in and even serving on the boards of other student organizations such as Relay for Life, Student Foundation, and Panhellenic Council. Our Thetas can also be seen in the sports arenas of soccer, cheer, polo, cross country, and pom squad. Our members truly do it all by balancing school, service to the community, internships, jobs, and an exciting social calendar.

Life as a Theta at SMU truly enriches our members’ college experiences. In the fall, we enjoy hosting our signature philanthropy event Theta 5k which last year raised $22,000 for our philanthropy CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). We also love to “boulevard” with our Theta sisters and the rest of SMU before cheering on the Mustangs football team, participate in the beautiful Homecoming parade and festivities, and attend our two fall formals. At the start of the spring semester, we anxiously await to welcome our new members home by participating in formal recruitment in January. After recruitment, Theta spirit is in full swing with Big Sis Little Sis, Initiation of our new members, and our spring formal. We also all come together as a chapter to support SMU Relay for Life with last year winning second place in fundraising with $23,000, not to mention that Thetas have served as the event chairs for two years in a row! Throughout the entire year we all continue to forge lifelong bonds with one another and grow into leading women of our society.

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,
MADDIE GIANCOLA, Beta Sigma President
