The Records of Greek Fraternities and Sororities

HISTORY

Fraternities and sororities began at Old Dominion College in 1964, quickly becoming a tradition of the school. In 1968, after a Sigma Nu delegate visited the University of Maryland, the Inter-Fraternity Council and the PanHellenic Council of ODC created a publication, “The Greek,” to service the school with information about Greek affairs.

SCOPE AND CONTENTS

This collection contains pamphlets produced by the fraternities and sororities of ODC, as well as “The Greek” publication.  This collection dates from 1965 to 1985.
