The year 1975 saw the birth of what started as a vision - an idea of an organization, a sisterhood that would cater to the needs of Latinas and the universal woman. Thanks to the tremendous strides made by our seventeen founding mothers, this dream was realized, and took form as the entity. Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Incorporated, the first Latina sorority in the nation.
Delta Sigma Chapter History
In the fall of 2003, upon her first year at Texas Wesleyan University, a young lady came to realize her discontent for the sororities currently established on campus. She was in search for a sorority which promoted true sisterhood, advancement for women, unity, and a contained strong academic background.
Through the help of the friend, she was guided toward an organization which would fulfill all that she was in search for. This successful organization was Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc., the FIRST Latin sorority to be established in the United States back in 1975. From this moment forward, this young lady organized a group of ladies who shared the same views and interests. Through a substantial amount of hard work and collaboration, the Interested Ladies of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. was established at Texas Wesleyan University in the Fall of 2005.
While continuing to recruit interests, as well as providing educational programs, fundraisers, and taking part in community services, the Interested Ladies of Lambda Theta Alpha were slowing advancing toward establishing an official chapter. On March 1, 2008, the Delta Sigma Chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Incorporated was established at Texas Wesleyan University by Eight Lovely Ladies.
