Chapter History

One cannot forget the beginning of our sorority. Without the love and work of those before us, we would not be a sisterhood today. Theta Gamma Phi began to form in 1967 and held its first organizational meeting that March. The five founding sisters were; Marsha Carpenter, Marsha Henderson, Mary Kwasnoski, Peggy Welsch and Glennane Ziegenfuse. They chose the daisy for their flower and they selected powder blue and moss green as the colors to symbolize their sisterhood. The high ideals these women were striving for were expressed with the words TRUTH, GRACE AND PERSEVERANCE.

On November 14, 1969, Theta Gamma Phi received the permanent status of a local sorority at Bloomsburg State College. March 1, 1971 was a special day for Theta Gamma Phi, at that time the chapter petitioned SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA to become part of the national organization. On November 5, 1971 the sisterhood of Bloomsburg became installed as Delta Zeta Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma and has been a thriving organization on campus ever since.
