Delta Chi

University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, Colorado, November 17, 1962-1998

Delta Chi was installed at what was then Colorado State College on a snowy November weekend in 1962. Festivities started on Friday evening with a reception at the Alpha Alpha house in Boulder. Chartered buses took the group to Greeley for initiation ceremonies in the Faculty Apartment Building. Fifty-six Alpha Alpha members assisted and provided entertainment. The installation banquet was held at the Greeley Country Club with Joan Perry Boatright, Alpha Beta - Iowa, serving as toastmistress. Joan along with several other Colorado alumnae were instrumental in bringing the chapter on campus. Connie Cristler Thompson, Alpha Eta - Kansas State, was assigned by Grand Council to serve as the "colonizer" while attending graduate school at the college. Barbara Rehm Gorman served as an advisor and held several international officer positions. The chapter closed in 1998.
