# of Single Letter Chapters Still Active?

This is a spinoff of AF's thread listing all of the NPC groups by single letters...

In this thread, ALL groups can play!

There are 24 letters in the Greek Alphabet -- how many single-letter chapters does your GLO have which are still open/active?

Kappa Kappa Gamma - 17 of 24

Active
Alpha deuteron: Monmouth College, Monmouth, IL - 1870-1884, 1934
Delta: Indiana University, Bloomington, IN - 1872
Epsilon: Illinois Wesleyan, Bloomington, IL - 1873
Eta: University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI - 1875
Theta: University of Missouri, Columbia, MO - 1875
Iota: DePauw University, Greencastle, IN - 1875
Lambda: University of Akron, Akron, OH - 1877
Mu: Butler University, Indianapolis, IN - 1878
Omicron deuteron: Simpson College, Indianola, IA - 1880-1890, 1990
Chi: University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN - 1880
Pi deuteron: University of California-Berkeley, Berkeley, CA - 1880-1885, 1897
Rho deuteron: Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, OH - 1880-1884, 1925
Kappa: Hillsdale College, Hillsdale, MI - 1881
Upsilon: Northwestern University, Evanston, IL - 1882
Psi deuteron: Cornell University, Ithaca, NY - 1883-1969, 1977
Omega: University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS - 1883
Sigma: University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE - 1884

Inactive
Beta: St. Mary's School, Knoxville, IL - 1871-1874
Gamma: Smithson COllege, Logansport, IL - 1873-1875
Zeta: Rockford Seminary, Rockford, IL - 1874-1878
Nu: Franklin College, Franklin, IN - 1879-1884
Tau: Lasell Seminary, Auburndale, MA - 1881-1882
Phi: Boston University, Boston, MA - 1882-1971
Xi: Adrian College, Adrian, MI - 1882-1944

This is where things get confusing, though. Prior to 1890, chapters that were established after a previous chapter had folded were given that chapter's designation letter. Then, at the 1890 convention, it was determined the second chapters would use the letter Beta to preface the chapter letter to show they were the second chapter of that letter and closed chapter letters would not be re-used. Chapters that were closed and then later reinstated use the designation "Deuteron" (a small delta set superscript to the letter) for the Greek term meaning "second".

So theoretically:

Beta Gamma: University of Wooster, Wooster, OH - 1876-1914
Beta Beta: St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY - 1881-1903, 1915
Beta Zeta: University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA - 1882
Beta Tau: Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY - 1883

could/should have been single-letter chapters considering they were founded before the final single-letter chapter was founded in 1884.

Our Beta chapter is still going strong .. and in fact enjoys the distinction of actually being older as an organized group than our Alpha chapter. Beta chapter of Alpha Xi Delta was chapter S of PEO until PEO decided to withdraw collegiate chapters.

For Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, 10, arguably 12, out of 26 (we've had two Gamma chapters and two Zeta chapters -- I'm not sure how that happened):

Delta -- Ithaca College (1901-present)
Epsilon -- University of Michigan (1902-1967, 1991-present)
Theta -- Syracuse university (1904-1972, 2005-present)
Zeta -- University of Missouri - Columbia (1907-present)
Iota -- Northwestern University (1910-present)
Mu -- University of Oklahoma (1912-present)
Xi -- University of Kansas (1914-1988, 1997-present)
Pi -- Simpson College (1917-present)
Tau -- Kansas State University (1921-1934, 1960-1985, 1999-present)
Phi -- University of Wisconsin - Madison

In addition, our Eta Chapter (Cincinnati College of Music, 1903-1955) and our Omicron Chapter (Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, 1914-1955) merged in 1955 when their hosting institutions merged. The resulting chapter -- Eta-Omicron -- has existed continuously since 1955 and is our only chapter with a "hyphenated" name, which is done to commemorate the chapter's double history.
