A letter from our president
We are pleased to welcome you to the official site of the Lambda Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at the University of Vermont! Kappa Alpha Theta was founded nationally as the first Greek-letter Fraternity known among women in 1870 at Indiana Asbury University—now known as DePauw University. Our chapter was established at University of Vermont in 1881 and recolonized in 2010.
Thetas are diverse and passionate women who strive for the attainment of the highest scholarship, exercise the widest influence for good, and believe in the standard of love. Our chapter is dedicated to achieving the most enriching college experience through the creation of the lasting bonds of sisterhood. Here at Lambda, we are always striving to live in accordance with the noble ideals of Kappa Alpha Theta. Our diverse group of women hold leadership positions not only in Theta, but both on campus and off campus as well.
We as Thetas are also incredibly passionate about each of our three national philanthropies. Each semester we hold many wonderful events to raise money for the charities near and dear to our hearts. In 2014, Lambda raised over $11,000.00 for our philanthropies and completed over 5,000 hours of community service. Not only do we enjoy raising funds for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), The Friendship Fund, and The Theta Foundation, but we have also fostered strong relationships with several local organizations in our Burlington community.
As the Chief Executive Officer of the Lambda chapter, I am honored to represent such an incredible group of leading women and could not be more proud of each of their accomplishments. All of the Theta love and support that I have experienced in my time here at Lambda has inspired me to be an even better leader. Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and learn about what it means to be a Lambda Theta!
Theta love and mine,
Keirstyn A. Mayotte
