About Us

Mu Epsilon Theta is a national organization formed on Catholic principles to unite college women by promoting academics, leadership, community service, and moral and spiritual well-being.



 

The Beginning

Mu Epsilon Theta was founded by Patricia Perez, Maria Alcocer, and Evelyn Greenfield. The decision date to organize Mu Epsilon Theta was October 21, 1986. Through God’s guidance, the three founders had a dream and on that day, it became a reality. This was the Alpha Class of the Alpha Chapter. Mu Epsilon Theta was founded as a local sorority and on January 16, 1987, Mu Epsilon Theta was officially recognized by the University of Texas at Austin as a UT organization.

Mu Epsilon Theta was formed on Catholic principles to unite independent, strong, and young college women by promoting academics, leadership, community service, and moral and spiritual well being. Mu Epsilon Theta’s motto is “Our Strength is From Above.” The sorority’s colors are Black, Yellow, and Silver and the stones are Onyx, Topaz, and Diamond. Our flower is the Yellow Rose and our mascot is the lamb.
