Mission statement

We believe that the bonds of sisterhood help women in their quest for personal, and provide a positive environment for the sharing of ideas and the advancement of women. We strive to achieve these goals to enrich ourselves, our sisters, and our community.

Chapter colors

The colors of EKT are navy and maroon. Navy blue is for constancy, faithfulness, and genuineness. Maroon, a deep red, is for optimism and revolution. These colors are opposite, representing diversity in the house which is brought together through the combination of the two colors.

Epsilon Kappa Theta at Dartmouth College was founded in January 1982 as the Epsilon Kappa colony of the Kappa Alpha Theta national sorority. Epsilon Kappa was the 100th colony of the sorority. On May 4, 1992, the Dartmouth chapter notified the Kappa Alpha Theta national organization of its unanimous vote to disaffiliate and become a local sorority. The Dartmouth women chose the new name Epsilon Kappa Theta.


Epsilon Kappa Theta works to enhance our community through service work. All sisters of Theta have mandatory philanthropy hours. We organize fundraisers or item drives every term that benefit WISE, the philanthropy group we have adopted. WISE is an Upper Valley non-profit organization that supports victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. In addition, EKT fundraises for and participates in the annual Prouty that benefits the work done at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Our other service projects include hosting lunches for SEAD students (high-school students from under-resourced backgrounds), cooking dinner with Students Fighting Hunger to combat hunger in the Upper Valley, and hosting a booth at the annual Sexfest/Consent Day to educate the community about consent, health relationships, and intimacy.
