Delta Omega

California State University, Fresno

1954

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

  1. Delta Kappa, the first local sorority formed at Fresno State College, was the last to become a chapter of a national fraternity, an indication that these girls showed a constancy of spirit in knowing what they wanted and being willing to wait for it.

  2. The first formal charter petition to Kappa by the Delta Kappas was made at the 1952 General Convention. In November 1953, the inspection committee visited the campus and voted unanimously in favor of allowing Delta Kappa to petition for a charter.

  3. Members of Delta Omega Chapter were able to build their own house on Greek Row in 1963. A lovely contemporary home was built, designed to meet the needs of the chapter. The house was arranged to accommodate 40 members with dining facilities for 100 so the town girls and nonresidents could be served too.

Fun facts:

  1. In June 1919, the administration rescinded approval of any Greek-letter names on the campus. Determined to keep together, the Delta Kappas renamed themselves “Da Kapo,” a name they retained until May 22, 1923, when they were permitted to reassume their original Greek letters, Delta Kappa.

  2. Downstairs in the house, chapter members love their couch "big blue," which is where they all come together for favorite shows, movies, or just to spend time with each other.
