Your homecoming payment are on-line and we would appreciate everyone paying in advance and by credit card, so we can improve processing efficiency - cash is OK but is an accounting nightmare for us. Dues and Homecoming can be paid together and we will disburse payment to the right location.
This will launch our combined, simplified RSVP & Payment window.
Thinking ahead to Homecoming 2017 if you need tickets, we need to know right away. We are excited to announce that this season the Athletic Department is allowing us to buy a block in the Club Level Premium seats (Sections 101-113), so if you want those, please order those now and on here. The Club Level Premium seats are on the visitor side under the upper deck; they include a reserved seat (not a bench), shade, and premium access, but also beer/beverages and snacks are included with the seats. These tickets are coming through the Eagle Fund donations and Season Ticket allocations of several Theta Kappa alumni, so we could secure these premium seats for our alumni. If you want other seating, please contact the ticket office directly.
To get these seats you need to RSVP for Homecoming and order the tickets as soon as possible - they are $45/seat, so submit your RSVP and pay your fees online as soon as possible.
If you are sure you are not going (and we hope you are), please click here for our express RSVP-NO.
On Nov. 17, 1967 (50 years ago) we were founded, on May 6, 1968 we were colonized as a chapter in Sigma Nu, and on May 10, 1970 we were chartered as Chapter #171 (Theta Kappa) in Sigma Nu Fraternity also known as the Legion of Honor. We were originally chartered with 32 members, but we have added over 20 additional founding and early alumni members over the years, including our primary founder, Robert G. Williams, ΘΚ 258, on Nov. 15, 1986. Now with close over 900 members and closing in quickly on 1000 initiates, we celebrate our 50th anniversary since our founding and we begin the approach our 50th anniversary in 2020, but each year we celebrate this date. This year is also special in that we end the school year of what has arguably been one of the best years of Theta Kappa certainly in recent memory.
Hail Theta Kappa! Hail Sigma Nu! Hail GSU! ΣΝΕΤΤ!
Each year we celebrate the anniversaries of our dedicated members who made it all happen.
At Homecoming 2017 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our founding!
With that in mind we are establishing yet another tradition for our Homecoming celebrations - each year we will celebrate the "5x Reunion" of candidate class initiation into the Theta Kappa Brotherhood. It is simple - you take the year of Homecoming, 2017 in this case, and you subtract multiples of 5 years to determine which class years we will specially honor. We want everyone to attend, but we will specially honor specific classes so that those alumni who cannot make the pilgrimage each year they will know the years that they should specially plan for and where the most of their initiate class and chapter peers will attend. To keep it simple we will tell you what it is:
2016 (6 & 1): 1970, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011
- In 2016 that is: 0042-0064, 0115-0127, 0174-0185, 0242-0272, 0380-0402, 0477-0493, 0599, 0695-0701, 0744-0780
- We always celebrate our founders and chartering year: 0001-0041, 0258-0271, 0300, 0329-0330, 0500
2017 (2 & 7): 1970, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2012
2018 (3 & 8): 1970, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003, 2013
2019 (4 & 9): 1970, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, 2014
2020 (5 & 0): 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015
Each member will be given an anniversary certificate and an alumni pin marking thier five (5x) year (in 5 year increments) anniversary, since their initiation in Theta Kappa of Sigma Nu.
We are also going to keep the Homecoming celebration easy to remember - it will follow a similar format and organization each year, so whether you get an invite or not, you know when Homecoming is, you will know what we are doing, you will know you are always welcome, and you can plan on it!. The only thing we will do is enhance or add activities to the schedule. Some other things to remember:
If you have ideas, suggestions, complaints or would like to volunteer to help, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the Alumni Commander or officers - thier contact information may be located by clicking here.
