SIGMA CHI SIGMA
OR Sigma Chi Sigma 1940 marks the year of its birth. Fourteen members of the
G. O. P., an organization which was formed in 1912 to promote school pep, drew up
a constitution which embodied a threefold purpose. The Greek letters in the name of the
organization suggest this purpose: to promote the social life of the individual member,
to promote culture, and to render a definite service to the college.
The members who are received into Sigma Chi Sigma must conform to the standards
specihed in the constitution. Only sophomore, junior, or senior girls who are enrolled in
a four year course, who maintain a scholastic average of 1.53 and who possess desirable
personality and ethical traits, interest, and a capacity for leadership are considered eligible
for the organization.
An advisory board of three persons, one of whom must be a faculty member, is chosen
by the organization to serve on a three-year plan. The senior member will be replaced
each year by an adviser elected by the group. Miss Alberta Greene, Miss Helen Loeb, and
Mrs. J. H. Owens were chosen to serve on the first advisory board.
A freshman girl who displays outstanding capacity for leadership, scholastic ability,
and personality traits, will be the recipient of the scholarship to be awarded each year on
Honor Day by the organization.
Although the organization of the club itself was the outstanding contribution of the
Sigma Chi Sigma year of 1940, the girls sponsored various social events during the winter
and spring terms. Sixty prospective candidates attended the rushing tea given in the Social
Room on February 16. A buffet supper was served at the home of Mrs. H. Owens,
March 3, in honor of the fourteen new members.
Sigma Chi Sigma week, April 1 to 5, was an innovation on our campus. During this
week all members wore their emblems, sponsored a Hnancial drive, and conducted a club
talent program followed by a tea for the faculty women. A commencement banquet
given by the members for the graduating seniors completed the calendar for the year.
With the optimism that is characteristic of any new organization, Sigma Chi Sigma
looks forward to assuming a genuine place in campus life.
