    In conjunction with Greek Week 2014, Sophia McGuire, the Library’s archival intern, researched the formation of sororities at Washington & Jefferson College and will be sharing her research outside the Rossin Ballroom on Wednesday, April 9, at 7pm.  McGuire’s research shows the process of recognizing women's fraternities at Washington & Jefferson College.

    The process of accepting women’s fraternities at W&J began in 1978, when the College was presented with four sororities to potentially have chapters at W&J. Of the four, Delta Gamma and Pi Beta Phi won the votes, and the two chapters began to colonize. Over the next ten years, two more sororities would be welcomed to campus as well – Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Kappa Gamma. The display captures the time in which sororities were accepted to campus and shares the experiences of women who made it happen.

    After Wednesday, the archival materials will be on display at the Library from April 11 through Commencement. - April 7, 2014
