Theta Xi Gamma
Nicknamed the Thetas, the sorority Theta Xi Gamma was founded at Gustavus in 1920. The colors that are associated with the Thetas are blue and white. Some of the events that the Thetas partake in include: Salvation Army bell ringing and gift wrapping, Operation Christmas Child, Crush Party, Bingo for area food shelf, faculty babysitting, and Fundraiser for Lane Cowger. The mission statement for the Thetas is “As members of Theta Xi Gamma sorority, we strive to develop long-lasting friendships with one another and with others in the Gustavus Adolphus College community. We will strive to better ourselves, our community, and our world by devoting time to serve others in need. We will strive to act as strong, positive role models to others in our community through our actions, words, and involvement. We strive to accept and celebrate others for who they are, and in turn, learn to fully accept and celebrate ourselves.”
