Chapter History


Before becoming sisters, the future founders spent three years trying to bring Lambda Theta Alpha to Lehigh’s campus, a dedication and love for it so great that the Delta Upsilon Chapter of ΛΘΑ was founded in the Spring of 2008 by its Five Founding Sisters. Since it’s founding, the chapter has dedicated its philanthropy work to sexual violence awareness. We have hosted events such as Walk A  Mile in Her Shoes – an international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence, as well as taken part of other campus-wide events like Take Back the Night. Representing Lambda Theta Alpha, we take pride in our rich history, mission, and colors of burgundy and grey. Although we are traditionally known as a Latin Sorority, our chapter sisters at Lehigh are very diverse, and not only as a chapter, but nationwide too! Accomplishing the vision that our Founding Mothers have of about the Universal Woman. Since the day of our founding, 1975, our organization has accepted women of ALL ethnicities and races – truly ‘Latin by Tradition, Not by Definition’.

  1. Top 10 Greatest Running Shoes For Women in 2014. It lets you record your pace, distance and run route using your i

  2. Hey Guys,
    I would love to talk to you about how GreekCheck could help you guys out. Briefly we are a mobile app that helps with organization and liability by creating events that automatically check people just by them showing up, no need to talk to anyone or even take their phones out of their pockets. This means we can eliminate roll call at mandatory events, keep track of participation hours (Study hall, philanthropy, community service) and make sure you are following FIPG guidelines on the weekend all with little effort at all from you.

    Shoot me a call at 615-509-8023 or just reply to this e-mail. Look forward to talking to you soon.

  3. They have several advantages in their favor. You need to
    take classes, join users groups and computer clubs. If you have
    decided to buy the HP Pavilion p7qe, you should know
    that there are many discount offers present.

  4. On Saturday, February 18, 2017 the 5th annual Lehigh Valley Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics will be held at Scott Park in Easton, PA. We anticipate over 500 costume-clad, energized plungers who will be “Freezin’ for a Reason” by jumping into the Delaware and raising money for a great cause.

    I would like to send you some information about the Special Olympics Polar Plunge but I am not sure who and where to send it to. Would you please share your contact information? Thank you.

  5. Happy 2017!

    With about 3 weeks to go till the Polar Plunge, I am writing to follow up to see if you reviewed my package and if you need any additional information regarding the Polar Plunge. We are excited to be getting the local schools involved this year and hope that the students and teachers will either join our team “The Bethlehem Freeze Pops” or form a team of their own.

    Just to reiterate the registration fee is $20 but students can use the code “Student” and don’t have to pay up front. They are still required to fund raise a total of $50 per plunger but as a team it can be averaged out. They can also fund raise as a team and hold a bake sale, etc.

    This is a great cause that helps Special Needs athletes cultivate a sense of independence and pride in their accomplishments.

    Again if there is anything I can provide please do not hesitate to contact me. We hope to see you at the event!
