San Antonio, TX -- Today, the founding line of Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc.’s newest chapter,

the only other Multicultural Greek-lettered organization on the OLLU campus.

“Establishing Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. on the OLLU campus is a testament to the campus’
promotion of diversity,” said Soror Jill Mata, who led the expansion effort. “OLLU has a long history of
respect for diversity of experience, thought, and expression, as well as service to the community, all of which
align with our Sorority’s mission and the passion of the women we attract.”

PrθvideNtial Ξight will belong to the Lake Greek Council on the OLLU campus, which includes organizations
who have a special interest or focus. The 8 women join the over 1,500 initiated members of Theta Nu Xi
Multicultural Sorority, Inc. across the country, on the organization’s 20th anniversary. They come together
from different races, cultures, religions, backgrounds, and lifestyles hoping to expand on OLLU’s existing
culture of welcoming diversity and multiculturalism. The expansion effort was led by Jillian Mata, who’s been
a member of Theta Nu Xi since the year 2006 when she joined at the Phi chapter located at UT-Austin. She
was aided by 11 other dedicated sisters.
