Delta Delta Delta at SMU Tops $1.5 Million

The Honoring Our Past, Building Our Future campaign is well underway in an effort to raise funds needed to build a new home for the women of Delta Delta Delta at Southern Methodist University. For over 95 years, the rich traditions of Tri Delta have made a significant impact on the lives of Theta Kappa women at SMU.
The chapter houses built in 1951 have been home to generations of students, but newer technology and building codes have dramatically changed over the past 60 years. Today, city code man-dates that all Greek houses implement a modernized fire sprinkler system by the year 2013. After evaluating this cost as well as the cost to modernize the Tri Delta house comparable to other top sororities, the House Corporation rationally determined that it makes more sense to rebuild a sensible new home. This is an ambitious, vision-driven project. The investment in Theta Kappa will yield a facility that complements the Corporation board’s efforts to produce outstanding members, scholars, and leaders for years to come. Their goal is to create a facility that will allow their sisters to share in a comfortable, safe living environment and to maintain a competitive edge in the SMU Greek community.

The new Theta Kappa home will be built in the same location as the current house and will accommodate the University’s maximum of 40 residents. With more than $1.5 million raised, construction is planned to begin in the summer of 2012 with completion in the summer of 2013 in time for the school year.
