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’.
