came onto campus, no others came until
1955. In 1955 both Phi Kappa Sigma frater-
nity and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity made
This year one of the Pi Kappa Alpha's
goals was "to improve our social calendar,"
said Jack Kermes, Pi Kappa Alpha presi-
dent. He felt they had a successful year. "All
of our members are really starting to get
involved," Kermes said, "and they are also
trying to strengthen alumni relations."
The men had a lunch cookout and play-
day with Cumberland Presbyterian Chil-
drens Home in the fall. They had their annu-
al Founders Day banquet on March 3 at the
Time Out sports bar.
Other goals for the Pi Kappa Alphas were
getting more involved in the community and
on campus. "We are starting to expand from
just being centrally in the fraternity and
going to other organizations as well,"
In 1965 Delta Sigma Phi fraternity came
onto campus, and in 1967 Delta Sigma Theta
sorority arrived on campus.
One of the big service projects for the
Delta Sigma Thetas in 1989-90 was the
"School America" program. "School Amer-
ica" was the part of the Barbara Bush pro-
gram to help combat illiteracy in America.
In cooperation with this program the ladies
asked schools, day care centers, and commu-
nity centers to read to children aged zero to
ten. Delta Sigma Theta president Pam Titus
said, "It is up to us to ensure that the chil-
dren of tomorrow are educated."
Last year was the twenty-first annual
Delta Sigma Theta Greek step show. The
theme was "Just When You Thought We
Were Gone, Delta Sigma Theta Back and
Strong." It was the largest show of its type
in the southwest region and they had eigh-
teen groups participate. The proceeds from
the show went to over twenty different
charities selected by the Delta Sigma The-
tas. Some of the charities chosen for the
spring 1990 were The American Heart Asso-
ciation, Muscular Dystrophy Association,
United Way, Special Olympics, and AIDS re-
Social activities they participated in in-
cluded the Greek Icebreaker in the fall, a
mini step show designed to introduce stu-
dents to the Greek system, and Crimson and
Cream weekend, done annually with the
men of Kappa Alpha Psi.
Goals included donating more time to
community service and to challenge the
members to raise their grade point averages.
"The members and their commitment have
made this a great year." said Titus.
The year 1968 brought yet another soror-
ity to campus, the Delta Zetas.
