We as sisters of Theta Phi Alpha take our motto to heart in everything we do. From sisterhood to philanthropies
to education, our organization knows that through hard work and dedication, anything is possible.
Our mission is to create close comradeship, to advance educational, social, and philanthropic interests and
leadership training; to encourage spiritual development and adherence to the highest moral standards;
and to promote lifelong bonds of friendship.
Our values are included in the first half of our Creed:
"Justice to each fellow man
Wisdom in each deed and plan
Loyalty to every friend
Faith that sorrow can transcend
Truth to God and truth to self
Honor valued over wealth"
These values have been enstilled in us since our founding in 1912, and they remain relevant to us every day.
