The oldest and most outstanding social group at McNeese State, Delta Alpha Delta, laid the groundwork for becoming Delta Eta chapter, with 27 collegiate members. Three other national sororities were installed during the spring semester of 1958: Chi Omega, Delta Zeta and Phi Mu. Through the years, Delta Eta members have remained strong scholastically, won prizes for Homecoming and Songfest, and won many campus honors. Betty Jane "B.J." Harlow Anderson, Omega - LSU, served as their advisor for many years and also served as an international officer as did Melanie-Prejean Sullivan.
