Figured I'd throw up a picture of our founders, too......

the portrait we usually use for rush and such is a compilation of 3 seperate portraits... I don't think there's an existing photo of the three women together.

Zeta Sigma Chi Founding Mothers

In 1990, eight determined women at Northern Illinois University came together to form a bond like no other. They had an idea for an organization that would unify women of different cultures, ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. This organization would also focus on the pursuit of higher education and achieving academic success. These strong women wanted to not only teach others at their school about their ideals, but they wanted to share their dreams and experiences with others as well. On March 3, 1991, Zeta Sigma Chi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. was formed by our Founders:


"Mommy Chi's"

Maribel Campa
Zandra Cortez
Sandra de la Roca
Veronica Escobar
Sandra Gomes
Jacqueline Herrera
Laura Murillo
Julie Sanders

Theta Chi has two, plus a friend who helped (he was a Chi Psi).

Why is that the fraternities have like at most 5 or 6 and the sororities usually have 12??

Kappa Sigma in America was founded one chilly evening in the fall of 1869, as five students attending the University of Virginia in Charlottesville gathered in William Grigsby McCormick's room at 46 East Lawn and planted the seed of Brotherhood. For many weeks the bonds of friendship had drawn these five together; now the need became clear for a formal structure to contain their feelings. Thus, not only did the Founders formalize their friendship, but they also created a fraternity steeped in the traditions of the past and dedicated to the Pursuit of Learning. The new brothers recorded their bond in a Constitution and in an Oath which set forth the ideals and principles to all Kappa Sigmas today.

The Five Founders:
George Miles Arnold
John Covert Boyd
William Grigsby McCormick
Frank Courtney Nicodemus
Edmund Law Rogers


Regarded as perhaps one of the most important men in Kappa Sigma's history, Steven Alonzo Jackson is the reason a struggling local fraternity became the strong National organization it is today. Jackson was also the architect of the Ritual, writer of the Constitution, and the first Grand Master.

Brother Francis Barksdale recalled Steven Alonzo Jackson with these words:
"Gentle as a woman, firm as a rock - a perfect bundle of nervous energy. His love of the Fraternity knew no bounds, and his enthusiasm was so contagious that it influenced everybody who came within his reach. His one ambition was to make Kappa Sigma the leading college fraternity of the world, and to that end he thought and worked by day and night, until the end of his busy life."

Manet Mansuraque Est.

Okay here goes:

Frederick Norton Freeman and Arthur Chase were cousins. They had been planning a fraternity for about a year. 1855 their friend Egbert Phelps transfered to union college and joined Chi Psi. Phelps and Freeman were both members of a secret society called The Regulators. Most of the Regulators equipment and records fell into the hands of Theta Chi. Freeman wrote the ritual. Phelps kept in contact with them and suggested the name based on a greek motto, and desinged the badge. (Although that last point is up for debate). Yeah. Those guys rocked.

I know that Sigma Sigma Sigma and ASA were both founded as sororites for teachers... there was a third one but for the life of me I can't remember it... It might have been ZTA but I'm not really sure...

While I'm not for certain that Alpha Sigma Tau limited it's membership to teachers only from the beginning, we were a member of the Association for Education Sororities and not Panhellenic (when NPC was first formed). Therefore, women could hold membership in an AES group and a NPC group at the same time. ( I remember learning that TriSigma and ASA were AES sororities as well, but I'm not positive on ZTA.)

And EagleChick has already posted our founders!!
