DAT was founded October 5, 2005, at the University of Windsor in Windsor, ON. We now have initiated over 100 members into our growing organization.
Delta Alpha Theta is a local sorority that is nationally registered and recognized in Canada, Delta Alpha Theta is therefore a national sorority and we are the only chapter in the world! This gives us the freedom to embark on our own missions and projects and lets us plan the activities we’d like to plan. We believe in not being followers, but in being modern innovators. Today, there are over twenty local and national sororities that were founded in Canada and we are so proud to be the only Canadian founded sorority at the University of Windsor!
Our letters represent the three letters of our name, as well as our three pillars – the different parts of oneself that we look for, strive to improve, and focus on the most.
Delta – Determination: every girl should be full of determination in order to successfully attain what she wants the most. As sisters, we help each other stay determined to do our best.
Alpha – Academics: what’s a post secondary education without at least a little bit of school thrown in? DATs work together through study dates and moral support to excel in school. We even have two scholarly awards, presented at the end of the year.
Theta – Teamwork: a large group of girls means a lot of teamwork is necessary. We work together to do everything – and have weekly meetings to plan activities and projects as a team.
