Chapter History

The First Installation:

Theta chapter was originally installed on April 4, 1907. They were previously the Zeta chapter of Sigma Tau Psi. The chapter was forced to close after the 1910-1911 school year, by the 1910 Convention vote to join the National Panhellenic Congress. In order to insure a strong organization, it was believed that the Fraternity must join the National Panhellenic Congress. Since only collegiate-ranked schools could participate, the Theta chapter was closed. The chapter installed 71 members, of which 13 were charter members. One of the charter members was Zenobia Wooten (Keller), who went on to work for Phi Mu for most of her life.

 

 

 

The Second Installation:

  On March 26, 1997, Phi Mu came to present to the members of local sorority, Kappa Delta Sigma. The vote was unanimous to petition Phi Mu for membership. On April 27, 1997 at 1:00 p.m., the members of Kappa Delta Sigma became Phi Mu Fraternity. After a short period, the requirements of installation were met and the chapter was reinstalled on January 18, 1998. There were 34 charter members.
