New Member Orientation
Kappa Alpha Theta chapters initiate their new members between 4-6 weeks after Bid Day. This program covers the following topics:
- Zero-tolerance hazing policy and risk management
- Theta history
- Personal excellence
- Ritual appreciation
In addition to these topics, Theta new members also complete Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP). Kappa Alpha Theta was the first women's fraternity to endorse and require that all members complete online alcohol education. ASTP is unlike most alcohol education programs because it acknowledges that college students may choose to drink. Rather than only trying to impose abstinence, it recognizes that any steps taken towards risk reduction are steps in the right direction. Through ASTP, Kappa Alpha Theta joins other interfraternal organizations in offering a program that focuses on risk management and educating our members through conversation and educational programming.
