Several local chapters of Greek organizations at Case will celebrate anniversaries within the next year.

Phi Mu sorority, as well as Delta Tau Delta and Phi Kappa Psi fraternities, will celebrate 20 years, 125 years and 100 years, respectively.

According to its Web site, Phi Mu, which has 63 active members, was founded locally at Case in 1985; the national chapter was founded in 1852. Over 100 Phi Mu sisters are expected to attend a reunion brunch during homecoming and alumni weekend, which takes place October 14-16.

In addition to the Phi Mu brunch, there will be an "All Greek Reunion" during homecoming weekend on Friday, October 14 at The Spot from 6-8 p.m. The reception is a chance for fraternity and sorority alumni from all groups to network with current Greek students and the Greek Life Staff.

Also, Phi Kappa Psi and Delta Tau Delta will reach milestones in 2006. The Phi Kappa Psi Case chapter was founded in 1906, and Delta Tau Delta started up at the university in 1882.

According to the Greek Life Web site, fraternities and sororities have been a part of the Case community since 1840. Case was the 14th college in the country and only the second college in Ohio to establish a Greek community. There are currently 24 chapters—17 fraternities, 6 sororities, and Black Greek Council, and about 30 percent of Case's student body is involved in fraternities and sororities.
