The Iowa City alumnae have a long history centering around our support of the Beta Omicron Chapter at the University of Iowa. The chapter was the first Kappa Alpha Theta colony and the alumnae club was instrumental in the founding of the Beta Omicron Chapter in 1926! The chapter was officially identified as an Alumnae Club in 1939. The Alumnae Club became an Alumnae Chapter in 2002 and in August 2010 was reidentified to include the Cedar Rapids alumnae.
We are proud of our members who have served at national officers for Kappa Alpha Theta: Mary Jane Beach as Grand President, National Panhellenic Council (NPC) Delegate, and now Fraternity Housing Corporation President Elaine Ivey on Grand Council. Sue Wolken and Jane Rowat as College District President and Mary Lea Kruse as Alumnae District President to name a few!
The Iowa City/Cedar Rapids Alumnae Chapter is consistently awarded for their performance. They have been noted by the Fraternity for the following achievement awards:
Pansy Award (2010)
Black and Gold (2012)
Twin Stars (2014, 2016)
Golden Kite (2018)
We have alums from over 22 undergraduate chapters!
