Epsilon Omega

Texas A&M University

May 11th, 1975

Founding Date

Alpha Phi’s 105th Chapter, Epsilon Omega, was established at one of the top universities in the southwest, Texas A&M at College Station. Although there were already seven sororities on campus, Greeks were not recognized by the University. In May, when the Alpha Phi chapter was installed, there was no Panhellenic on campus either, but one has since been organized. Establishment of Epsilon Omega Chapter was late in January. 


On April 25 the women took box lunches and boarded a bus for Austin for an initiation by Omega Chapter of University of Texas. Omega Chapter had planned the Court of Ivy ceremony and an evening of fun for the Phis-to-be. All the women stayed at the Omega house, a wall-to-wall slumber party. After breakfast the next morning, the new members of Epsilon Omega were initiated by Omega chapter. Following the model meeting, the initiation banquet was served at the Omega house.


The chapter was then installed on its home campus on May 11. The reception was held at the home of Hillary May Jessup (Beta Gamma-Colorado). This was a family afair, with parents, two grandmothers, aunts and boyfriends attending. Hillary’s home overflowed with guests, more than was expected on Mother’s Day. After refreshments, Judy Kay Mead presented the chapter charter.
