Kappa Theta

Baylor University

Apr 27th, 2019

Founding Date

On April 27, 2019, Alpha Phi’s 172nd active collegiate chapter was installed at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. All events took place on campus, with more than 200 collegians and 17 alumnae being initiated at Miller Chapel in the Tidwell Bible Building. Past International President Renee Smith Zimmerman Zainer (Beta Epsilon-Arizona) presided over the Initiation ceremony, while past International President and Extension Team Lead Deana Koonsman Gage (Gamma Iota-Texas Tech) served as the toastmistress for the Installation Banquet. The banquet was held at the Cashion Banquet Hall and included the formal installation of the new chapter as Kappa Theta chapter. 


On behalf of the Kappa Theta chapter, Alpha Phi Foundation presented two grants at the installation. A grant was given to the Baylor Panhellenic Council to support a Greek unity event, and a community organization grant was presented to the Heart of Texas Community Health Center, a local nonprofit committed to providing healthcare services to the vulnerable populations in their community. The installation events were a celebration of a quick and eventful spring semester for this young chapter, which celebrated Bid Day on February 7, 2019.
