Epsilon Rho

University of Nevada at Las Vegas, May 4, 1968

The local Phi Delta Chi had a reputation of being dependable, so they were called upon by the Dean to help with fundraising drives and school tours. The group was installed as Epsilon Rho, becoming the first NPC group on campus. They have continued their commitment to service and leadership at UNLV, assisting in the creation of the university radio station and serving in countless leadership positions. In the early 1970s, there was a push to eliminate the Greek system, but then as the system began to grow, the council allowed new chapters to colonize. Today the chapters at UNLV have more than 100 members. Alpha Delta Pi and Delta Zeta are the only two national groups left from that era. Epsilon Rho still leads other groups by being the first sorority to institute philanthropy night for formal recruitment and the first Greek organization to have a website. Lorraine Alderman Testa served as an advisor, an international officer and on Grand Council. Ashley Walker Steyer also has a long service record.
