Theta Phi Alpha is a national women's social fraternity and was installed at Creighton University in 1952. The mission of Theta Phi Alpha encompasses far more than providing a social network for college women. For more than 90 years, the sisters of Theta Phi Alpha have maintained a history rich in educational excellence, professional achievement, and deep commitment to social service.

Theta Phi Alpha was founded in 1912 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Encouraging spiritual development and adhering to high moral standards, we promote life-long bonds of friendship and sisterhood.

Theta Phi Alpha national supports Glenmary Lay Missioners and The House That Theta Phi Alpha Built. Glenmary's work is in depressed rural areas of the United States, primarily in the Appalachians Mountains, where they distribute food, clothing, and books to needy persons, and assist in providing medical care, job training, and tutoring. The House That Theta Phi Alpha Built is Theta Phi Alpha's newest philanthropic cause, established in 1993. The common goal through The House is to improve the plight of the homeless in any way. The chapter can seek to provide assistance to organizations that help the homeless, shelters, home building or neighborhood revitalization projects.

Our nickname is Theta Phi and our motto are "Nothing Great Is Ever Achieved Without Much Enduring" and "Ever Loyal, Ever Lasting." Our symbols are the penguin and compass and our colors are silver, gold, and blue.
