The William & Mary chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, Beta Gamma, was installed on April 28, 1922 and was the second greek organization for women students to be recognized at William & Mary.
"In 1837, the Methodist Church established Indiana Asbury (now DePauw University) in Greencastle, Indiana." "Indiana Asbury officially opened its doors to women in 1867, but not without great uproar from the male students. In 1870, Theta became the first women's Greek-letter fraternity because its primary founder, Bettie Locke, wanted full membership in a male fraternity. When the men asked her to wear their fraternity badge as a 'mascot,' she responded, 'If you won't initiate me into your fraternity, I'll start my own.' Thus, Kappa Alpha Theta was established on January 27, 1870.http://www.kappaalphatheta.org/
