I home it is the start of something new for PSU sorority women.

I just wonder how likely other sororities will be interested in following Phi Sig's lead. At what point is it necessary to have a house to stay competitive?
Two of my great aunts went to Penn State, and one was a professor there. I have their photo albums, and it shows them at a house (and I forget the name at this moment). The research it did showed that it was a local which became Kappa Alpha Theta. So, there IS a history of sorority houses at PSU, albeit almost 100 years ago!
