Est. 2004


After the 2003 National Convention, Beta Alumnae, Liz Gutierrez and Kerry Vallant, met with Alpha Alumna, Desiree Downs, to discuss the idea of starting a GAP chapter based in the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, NC). All agreed this was a good idea and set out to find additional sisters to take part in the project. The ladies soon recruited Alpha Alumna, Megan Cornish and GAP Sisters, Tonya Walton and Linda Kress. These dedicated women met over several months to establish a strong foundation for their chapter and on April 16, 2004, the Xi Theta Chapter of Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. was founded.

By 2007, Theta Nu Xi had taken flight, growing to 23 undergraduate and 15 GAP chapters and kaleidoscopes. The Sorority commemorated the milestone by returning to where it all began for that year’s National Convention. Members gathered in record numbers in Chapel Hill, NC to celebrate the achievements of the Sorority, our members, and to look toward the future of Theta Nu Xi.
