Kappa Alpha Theta's beginning can be traced back to our highest aim - Scholarship.
Our first members were the first women students at Indiana Asbury, women who were looking for ways to make friends and find support and encouragement for their academic pursuits. At CWRU, Thetas have study groups and mentors who help each sister to achieve her goals in academics. For the past 5 semesters, the Eta Pi chapter has been recognized by the Greek Life Office for attaining the Highest GPA among all sororities.
This year, for the first time since the inception of the Agnar Pytte Cup Award, Eta Pi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta has reached the level of Excellence in all four pillars of Greek Life. In achieving this, our chapter has become the first ever chapter on Case Western Reserve University’s campus to receive the Agnar Pytte Cup. To receive this prestigious award, a chapter must receive Excellence, the highest level of distinction, in the pillars of Scholarship, Citizenship, Ritual, and Leadership within one academic year. This award represents the astounding achievements of all the sisters of Kappa Alpha Theta, who strive every day to live our values: scholarship as our highest aim, the widest influence for good, leading women, and personal excellence. This recognition is additionally heartwarming, as we are preparing to celebrate the 10th Year Anniversary of Kappa Alpha Theta on Case Western Reserve University’s campus.
Additional Fraternity efforts for excellence focus on leadership development. Many opportunities for leadership developments exist within each individual chapter structure, as well as larger programs - such as Grand Conventions. In 2016, the Eta Pi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta was awarded a Golden Kite at Grand Convention for overall chapter excellence!
