The Compass

The Compass is the official magazine of Theta Phi Alpha. News of members, chapters, and Alumnae Associations, pertinent information and articles of interest to the Fraternity’s members are included in The Compass. Alumnae and collegiate members are encouraged to submit articles of general or fraternal interest to The Compass and also to inter-fraternity journals. Collegians receive The Compass at their homes as part of their per capita fees, collected through each chapter. Alumnae pay alumnae dues to continue their subscriptions. All members are urged to keep National Office informed of any changes of name and/or address to ensure delivery of every issue.
