    Marietta Colony Closure
    Theta Phi Alpha was saddened to announce the closure of the Marietta College Colony in Marietta, Ohio on March 29th. Marietta College was colonized in February 2014 by a strong group of women representing the values of the Fraternity. During their time as a colony, members worked hard to make great philanthropic and social contributions to the Marietta campus and local community. However, due to sustainability challenges the Grand Council voted to close the colony. Any questions pertaining to the Marietta closure can be directed to the National Office at 440-899-9282.
