Chapter History

In the fall semester of 1969, 11 dedicated college women formed a TID group (those interested in Delta). Although the group was small, each woman was enthusiastic and ready to make a Kansas State Delta Sigma Theta chapter a reality. In keeping with the ideals of Delta, these women worked on several service and community projects. Two of such projects were visiting soldiers at Erwin Army Hospital and he founding of United Black Voices Gospel Choir.

With the aid of Lorraine Lewis, past director for the central region, the Deltas of Zeta Beta and Wichita Alumnae Chapter, the TID's learned their Delta materials and past through symbolic pledging and probate periods. On January 17th 1970, the Eta Gamma Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. was chartered at Kansas State University.
