With just two active members, TCU’s chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha is looking to grow. 

Stacy Vinton, the chapter president, and her line sister, Adriana Coronado, hosted a vision board making event Monday in the Intercultural Center in the hope of recruiting new members. 

The sorority is a part of the Multicultural Greek Council, which is in the midst of spring recruitment.

“We have a saying in LTA that says ‘quality over quantity,’” Coronado said. “We would rather have two of us that are down for the cause, who would do anything for LTA and stand up for what we believe in than have 10 girls who wouldn’t do the same.”

The pair said they work hard to plan each event and get to know every individual. Even though LTA is historically a Latina sorority, anyone who shares the same values and is genuinely interested in being a part of the chapter is welcome. 

“Our motto is ‘Latin by tradition, not by definition,’” Vinton said.

Coronado added, “If you fit our motto and our values you are welcome to come.” 

They said activities like the vision board event create an intimate, easy-going time with the active members. The vision board was introduced by Maylin Herrera, who works with nationals, to encourage young women to focus on personal growth and aspirations for 2024.

“I like the vision board activity because you are putting your goals out there and realizing what you want to accomplish,” Herrera said.

In addition to the vision board, prospective members were given a wheel of life handout to reflect on 2023 in order to set goals for the future. Many of these goals pertained to academics and service, as LTA is an academic and community service-based sorority.

“Once you join LTA, it is a lifelong commitment,” Coronado said “It is important to handle school work, as well as chapter, MGC meetings and sorority events like the vision board making in order to navigate and maintain your time.”

The vision board event represents the atmosphere and values of LTA, along with the lifelong friendships one will be able to get out of the sorority, said Coronado.

Vinton and Coronado plan to go to the half marathon in the Cowtown Marathon together later this month.

“Our values are unity, love and respect, and as soon as I met the girls in LTA, I instantly clicked with them,” Vinton said. “I liked how tight-knit the sorority was, and it felt like family.”

In addition to the vision board making event, LTA will be hosting other events from 5-7 p.m. on Feb. 6-9. For more information on LTA, go to their official Instagram account @lta_epsilonrho or What2Do@TCU.
