Theta Sigma, UCF
On January 27th, 1995, the newest colony of the national women's fraternity Alpha Xi Delta officially began. Over 100 trailblazing women were chosen to receive official bids and pledged themselves to start a journey that would be fun, challenging, and ultimately triumphant as they created a brand-new sisterhood that would change many women's lives at the University of Central Florida in the years to come. In the next two months, the women jumped into a packed schedule of sisterhood events, leadership retreats, socials, and philanthropies to establish a name for themselves on campus and earn the right to be an official chapter.
On March 25th, 1995, their hard work paid off as 112 excited women were rewarded with the honor of becoming officially initiated sisters of the Theta Sigma chapter of Alpha Xi Delta. The year that followed would make their chapter stronger, as the women participated in a successful fall recruitment, rushing out of the Alpha Tau Omega house, and established two cherished traditions that still continue today; the Xi Man competition, a male beauty pageant featuring UCF's fraternity men competing to hold the revered title of Xi Man, the Alpha Xi sweetheart; and the Killarney Ball, an annual formal dance to send off the school year in style. In 2000, Theta Sigma was blessed with a place on campus to call their own- a beautiful chapter house, located at 4101 Greek Park Drive.
Today, Alpha Xi Deltas at UCF can be found in all aspects of Greek and student life and many organizations. SGA, O-Team, and the Panhellenic Executive Board to name but a few. Friendly, fun, athletic, intelligent, and classy, we Alpha Xi's are proud of our letters and enjoy a sisterly bond like no other as we look forward to an even brighter future in the years to come.
