When women were admitted to the University of Virginia in 1970, Virginia students resisted sororities, even though men’s fraternities had thrived on the campus for more than a century. But attitudes eventually changed. Theta’s Delta Chi Chapter was installed in 1976, becoming the fourth NPC group on the Virginia campus.
From the very beginning, Theta alumnae have distinguished themselves in their careers and their volunteer endeavors. In fact, some are so well-known that they’re household names, and many have the distinction of being the first women in their professional fields. The archives takes this opportunity to recognize some of our more notable sisters.
