Description

The chartering of the first Historically Black Sorority at the University of Richmond is garnering attention as eight Westhampton College students diligently work to uphold the name of Delta Sigma Theta. This nationally recognized sorority was established on campus because minority women felt that they needed a space in Greek Life in which “membership is open to all races.” Initially chartered at Howard University, Delta Sigma Theta drew attention with the Five Point Program; educational development, economic development, physical and mental health, and political and international awareness and involvement.
