  • The Pearl is a periodic electronic newsletter for Theta Phi Alpha sisters. Our volunteer team stays hard at work creating engaging stories that will interest and inspire you. Reading The Pearl is a great way for you to keep up with Fraternity news, enjoy profiles of ΘΦΑ sisters, read about current women’s issues, and more.


    Here are a variety of columns you will enjoy in The Pearl:


    News and Notes - The News and Notes column offers brief news items such as Fraternity news, events, and accomplishments; extension updates; and chapter and alumnae association news.


    Features - In the current issue, read about three years of record-breaking recruitment for Theta Phi Alpha and the revamped national recruitment program that has contributed to this success. Check out previous feature stories in The Pearl, too, such as a story about our commemorative Centennial History Book to be published in 2012 to celebrate 100 years of Theta Phi Alpha!


    Pathways - The Pathways column offers tips, tools and thoughts about the many paths in women’s lives. Look to this column for useful information about family, career, finances, health, hobbies, community involvement, personal time, and more.


    Life Stories, Pearl by Pearl - As ΘΦΑ sisters, we get to know each other through talking about our life experiences. What better way to connect with sisters across the world than by sharing those stories through The Pearl? The stories in this column will inspire you.

    If you would like to contribute a story, write about something that has happened to you, something that touched you, or something that makes you think. Tell about a family, friendship, career, volunteer, travel, or hobby experience that has, in some way, impacted your life. Send your short essays for consideration to with Life Stories, Pearl by Pearl in the subject line.

    Sister Profiles - Theta Phi Alpha regularly spotlights ΘΦΑ sisters and the interesting things they are doing. Sister Profiles are published in both The Compass and The Pearl so that we can maximize the opportunities to showcase our sisters. Do you know a ΘΦΑ sister who is doing someting interesting or extraordinary? Let us know so that she can be featured in Sister Profiles. Email profile ideas to with “Sister Profile Story Idea” in the subject line.


    The Pearl is another part of the Fraternity’s commitment to expand communication and keep in touch with you more frequently. As a sister publication to The Compass, our print magazine, we’re excited about the many stories and sisters we are able to feature with this e-news format. 


    We know you will enjoy reading The Pearl and we look forward to staying in touch with you through this avenue.
