Rho Chapter

From PhiSigmaPiWiki

Rho Chapter (Founded 14 May 1934; Reactivated 25 March 1987) was started at Wilson Teachers College in Washington, DC. In 1955 the school merged with Miner Teachers College as a result of Brown v Board of Education and became the District of Columbia Teachers College, the predecessor to the University of the District of Columbia. The chapter went inactive at some point, reactivating in 1987 at UDC and then went inactive again in 1997.
