Miami University was founded in 1809 in Oxford, Ohio, and ultimately became a campus where several national Greek organizations were founded. Kappa Alpha Theta is the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. Theta, as it has come to be known, was founded at DePauw University in 1870. In 1948, a local group — Alpha Kappa Epsilon — formed, hoping to gain a Theta charter. The group’s first new member class, competing with 11 established NPC groups, earned the Campus Scholarship Cup. In 1951, Gamma Upsilon was installed at Miami. Gamma Upsilon received the Founders Award in 1982. We currently have over 190 members in our Gamma Upsilon chapter.
