Alpha Chi Nikê Response
The 1915 installation of Alpha Chi Chapter at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, took place 35 years after a secret initiation of six Purdue women in the 1880s. Those first initiates, who kept their secret for 35 years, surely welcomed a recognized chapter they could call their own.
