Gamma Xi Nikê Response
Sappho Society, the oldest local group at the San Jose State College, became Gamma Xi Chapter, the fourth Theta chapter to be installed in 1947. Inspired by the determination of Bernice Thompkins — Phi Chapter alumna and Professor of History at the college — alumnae in San Jose, Palo Alto, and surrounding areas worked hard to bring Kappa Alpha Theta to the campus as soon as it achieved four-year status. Theta was one of the first four NPC groups to be installed simultaneously. Gamma Xi Chapter left the campus in 1975.
