The Epsilon Omicron chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on the University’s campus on March 20, 1965 and will celebrate their 50th anniversary this weekend.

Delta Sigma Theta was the first African-American sorority to be established on the University’s campus.

In addition to planning meaningful events on campus, Delta Sigma Theta has been dedicated to sisterhood, scholarship, and service on campus, said Delta Sigma Theta treasurer Sydney Howell.

This weekend, they will host over 150 Deltas to celebrate the legacy of the Epsilon Omicron chapter with a weekend full of events, including a mixer, community service, a Gala and a re-dedication ceremony for alumni.
