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. Fourty-four collegians were initiated as charter members on November 11, 1990 and initiated their second class of thirteen 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 girls and continues to be a strong, positive, presence on Marquette's campus.


 Xi House 



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, the Xi House is the chapter's home away from home. Our new house is located on the corner of 15th and Kilbourn where it will house 21 members! We are so excited for the new memories that will  be made in the newest Xi House and cannot wait for the future of the Theta Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta.
