Historical facts: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  1. Delta Mu Chapter was founded at the University of Connecticut in the cold winter days of December 1942. To save its guests gas and extra traveling, the new chapter installed extra cots in its dormitories for the girls to use when visiting Kappas stayed overnight. 

  2. A piece from the winter 1964 issue of The Key shares more about the chapter’s founding: “On Jan. 14, 1932, a group of girls presented to the administration of the Connecticut Agricultural College a petition to be known as the Delphian Club … . On Nov. 3, 1933, the Delphian Club was recognized as the Delta Chi Omega Sorority … . It was in 1939 that the group first considered national fraternities, when the college was reorganized as a university. They voted to center their attention on Kappa Kappa Gamma … . At the 1942 Seigniory Club Convention, this group was accepted as the future Delta Mu Chapter.”
