True Theta Expectations

Theta Delta Sigma is a national organization. This means that all of our chapters and members have pledged to live by the values and principles of our ritual. It doesn't matter where the chapter is located or the status of the member, all must meet these expectations. Being a Theta is about more than just wearing letters and attending events.

A True Theta is:

  • Committed to the Society
  • Financially Responsible
  • Scholastically Oriented
  • Socially Acceptable
