Theta Epsilon Chapter at Marquette University
Alpha Xi Delta's Theta Epsilon Chapter started at Marquette as a local sorority Kappa Zeta in the fall of 1989. Kappa Zeta was created by a small group of friends who wanted a Greek organization they could call their own. The group soon applied for national affiliation and was established as an Alpha Xi Delta Colony in April, 1990. Forty-four collegians were initiated as charter members on November 11, 1990 and initiated their second class of thirteen members in January 1991.
National President Jayne Wade Anderson led national, regional and local officers in Theta Epsilon’s installation activities. Collegians from Beta Psi (Carroll College) and Theta (University of Wisconsin-Madison) Chapters, as well as sisters from local alumnae groups in both Wisconsin and Illinois joined together to enthusiastically welcome the new sisters. Today Alpha Xi Delta at Marquette has over 150 amaXing women and continues to be a strong, positive presence on Marquette's campus.
The Alpha Xi Delta House, or as the sisters like to call it "Xi House", was previously located on 17th and Kilbourn. Known as the cute, blue house on the corner, Xi House was our chapter's home away from home. However, in 2015 we moved just down the street to our new home - located on the corner of 15th and Kilbourn!
Our house is just one of the places where our sisters make memories that will last a lifetime! It is known as "Xi House" and can house up to 21 sisters. There are three floors - each with their own kitchen, showers, and toilet rooms. There are two vanity/beauty rooms in the house and two laundry rooms. Each floor has its own unique aspects and vibe to it. Every room is fully furnished with a bed frame, mattress, a desk along with a matching chair, and two dressers. Xi House is a fun place where our sisters can relax and enjoy each other's company.
