An iconic campus location
The pond used at the turn of the century to water the college work animals eventually
took its name from the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, then located nearby.
Theta Pond has witnessed many memorable moments. Freshmen were often thrown into the
pond. In the early years, classes and colleges held tug-of-war competitions across
the pond, with the losers getting a dunking!
There’s a romantic angle to Theta Pond as well, with students over time meeting, going
on dates, getting “pinned” and even engaged there. Many a gorgeous wedding photo have
been taken at the pond.
Today, the beautiful pond offers the perfect setting for relaxing under a shady tree, talking with a friend, taking that perfect picture or watching the ducks and geese. Make your memories at Theta Pond.
