In the spring of 2001, Maishia Gillman and Latricia Washington began setting the ground work for National Sororities present on Pratt’s campus. The National Sorority Interest Group (known as NSIG) began in the Fall of 2001. Finally, late that semester, the woman decided that Theta Phi Alpha was the sorority for them and made plans to become colonized members of Theta Phi Alpha.

On January 25, 2002, ten women became the first pledge sisters of the Pratt colony of Theta Phi Alpha. Led by Carolyn Fulton, Pratt Colony’s advisor, that weekend was spent with many National Officers and our big sister chapter Alpha Epsilon. During that weekend, the Colony members spent time learning the essentials about the Fraternity.

After that, the ladies needed to recruit more woman into the Colony and lay the groundwork for development of the Colony. They were able to pin two more members a few weeks after Colonization weekend. By the Fall semester of 2002, they were able to pin eleven and then one more woman halfway though the semester. Spring semester, the Colony was again about to recruit 3 new pledge sisters.

Fall 2003, The Colony was able to recruit 15 new pledge sisters. During this time, Grand Council approved our Colony to become the newest Chapter of Theta Phi Alpha- the Gamma Eta Chapter of Theta Phi Alpha.
