Our Alpha Chi Chapter at Murray State University was installed on January 31, 1942. Twenty-six women interested in supporting the development of a Tri Sigma chapter met with Mabel Lee Walton in the Fall of 1942, and during the installation weekend, the event was marked with casual parties in the rooms of the women. According to the “Path from Farmville”, the sorority national guests attended events that were similar to pajama parties, with hair rolled up in curlers and peanuts and soda as the refreshments. Tri Sigma was the first national sorority to be on Murray State’s campus.
This chapter is known for the outstanding membership experience it offers to women at Murray State, as well as the many awards won by this stellar group of women. Now, Tri Sigma is one of five NPC organizations on campus.
