At Boston University in 1888, three women’s Greek organizations were represented on campus. While many women were content to call these organizations home, a few were not. Sarah Ida Shaw, Eleanor Dorcas Pond, Florence Isabelle Stewart, and Isabel Morgan Breed felt that the existing organizations were far too concerned with a woman’s outer appearance, rather than her inner self and character. The friends began working together in earnest to form a new society, deciding upon a name, Greek mottos and passwords, and a set of ideals. In their enthusiasm, the friends were unaware of the impact their new organization would have upon future women and Greek-letter organizations, founding on November 27, 1888, the sorority of Delta Delta Delta (Tri Delta).
