Theta President Resigns
Written by Bwog Staff
If you’ve been living under a rock lately, you probably still heard about Columbia’s Kappa Alpha Theta chapter’s recent mixer where members of the sorority were photographed wearing offensive ethnic stereotype costumes. Chicano Caucus, Dean Martinez, the inter-Greek Council and Theta all issued statements responding to the story. And then the comments on every article written about the issue devolved into a shitstorm of anti-Theta or anti-Chicano Caucus (or anti-Bwog/Spec) vitriol, which was both unfortunate and unsurprising.
Anyway, Bwog recently learned from Theta members who would prefer to remain anonymous that the chapter’s president, Katie Barclay, CC’15, has resigned. Members of the sorority received an email earlier today informing them of her resignation. According to the Lion, Barclay’s name was removed from the national organization’s page on Columbia University’s chapter last night.
