Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was the first Greek-letter organization established for and by college-educated African American women. It was founded on January 15, 1908 on the campus of Howard University by a group of nine distinguished women.
Radford University's Theta Chi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was chartered on Saturday, May 4, 1974 by 12 phenomenal women with the purpose of allowing exceptional women at Radford University to become a part of this amazing organization.

“My Greek Life experience encouraged me to become more vocal on and off campus and prepared me to be a leader in the workforce. Beyond that, it increased my eagerness to learn and do more, and helped me make lifelong connections and valuable relationships.” – Kiara Charity ’17
