Alpha Sigma Alpha was founded at Longwood College in Farmville, Virginia on November 15, 1901.  Nationally, Alpha Sigma Alpha has 74 collegiate chapters and 75 alumnae chapters.  Over 60,000 members are committed to promoting sisterhood, heritage and leadership. 

In the Fall of 2002, a group of women formed the Alpha Sigma Alpha Colony at the University of Alaska Anchorage after realizing that UAA had limited choices for the women on campus.  These women wanted more and started looking around.  After reading the mission and values that Alpha Sigma Alpha uphold, they knew that it was the right choice.

For the next year, these women actively recruited on the UAA campus.  On April 17, 2004, the Alpha Sigma Alpha colony finally achieved the goal they had spent over a year striving for.  They were installed as the Theta Delta Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha. 

In the spring of 2009, the Theta Delta Chapter celebrated their 5 year anniversary.  They are learning new ways to help their chapter, organization, and themselves.  With the help of their sisters, they are learning how to be the women of poise and purpose.
