Chapter History

The Theta Phi Chapter of Sigma Kappa was installed at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on February 10, 1991. During our chapter's installation, we received a tremendous amount of support and encouragement from the Beta Tau chapter of University of Florida. This is why many of our sistersand have a loving appreciation of the gator. Since that time, the Theta Phi Chapter has proven to be an exemplary group of women who strive for success in service, leadership, and campus involvement. The Theta Phi chapter is a prominent chapter in the Panhellenic community and has been consistently recognized as a top recruiting chapter on campus. In 2006, the Theta Phi chapter relocated into a Historic Fort Wood District, becoming the very first sorority in Tennessee to have a residential sorority home. Since then, our chapter has grown so large, that our cherished sorority home could no longer hold all of our members. In order to accomodate our growing membership, we are very excited to announce that we will be embarking on a new adventure to relocate and build a new sorority house!  We have begun construction and our new home will give our chapter the needed space to continue to share our amazing experiences of sisterhood we cherish as Sigma Kappas. 

Theta Phi exceeds the standards of our national organization and was on of four chapters throughout the nation that was awarded 3 Stars for Standards of Excellence  in the summer of 2016, recognizing our accomplishments for the 2015 year. This is Sigma Kappa's most prestigious collegiate award and is presented to those chapters who meet all of the Sigma Kappa minimum standards and above. These standards include high performance in areas such as: membership, financial management, philanthropy, scholarship, public relations, ritual, recruitment, leadership, new member education, alumnae relations, and campus involvement.  Theta Phi also the recipient and honored to receive the Founder's Award in both 2015 and 2016.  This award is given to the top performing Sigma Kappa chapter in the nation!  We also recently received the Louise Helen Coburn Award for our outstanding programming and relations with area alumnae.  We are truly grateful for the talented women that make up our chapter and the alumnae volunteers and advisors that support our endeavors to accomplish such great things in the Chattanooga community and beyond.
