Epsilon Epsilon was colonized in the fall of 1965 by five collegiate members of Texas chapters. They were Donese Mayfield Jones, Alpha Zeta - SMU; Cindy Schlecte Swannack and Roberta "Berta" Craddock Grau, both of Zeta - Southwestern and Faye "Elaine" Combs Brown and Celia "Beth" Waters Black, both Delta Beta - Lamar. The chapter was installed as the 13th NPC group on campus and the 13th chapter in the State of Texas at that time. As was the custom at Tech, a "store-front" lodge in a business area was secured shortly after colonization and the chapter met there until a historic home was secured in the early 1970s. In the late '70s, a 7,200 square foot lodge was built on the new Greek Circle. The chapter supports the nearby Lubbock Ronald McDonald House. Nita Baker Nunn Arwine, Delta - Texas, was instrumental in bringing the chapter to campus and was involved with them throughout her life. Other long-serving alumnae include Josephine "Jo" Parks Templer, Nu - Randolph-Macon; Carol Sweny Kyle, Delta Lambda - West Texas; Jan Hood Broome, Lou-Pat Camp Turner and Carolyn Watt. Alumnae with long records of local and international service include Billie Mullins Roark, Karen Helmke Rogers, Tiana Hayslip and Kathy Nolan Wiesner.
