Juanita Girls – Delta Pi Beta – Chi Omega

Written by Sally Sinor, Project Archivist

Juanita Girls-Delta Pi Beta-Chi Omega
1911-2000

Founded in 1911, The Juanita Girls were the first sorority on campus. When “Greek” organizations became popular across the country, the sorority became Delta Pi Beta in 1943. In 1962, they transferred the national sorority of Chi Omega as the Iota Zeta Chapter.  Low membership forced the Chapter to close in 2000.

The materials of the sorority were held by the UNK Alumni Association until they were deposited by the membership with UNK Archives & Special Collections following the annual reunion of 2016.
