Fraternity and Sorority History

Our History at Pepperdine

Nationally-recognized chapters were chartered as early as 1995 at Pepperdine University where local chapters and social clubs were encouraged to identify and become adopted into a national organization. We receive many inquiries from alumni/alumnae of Seaver asking which chapter their group transitioned into. To the best of our knowledge these are the transition pairings (from records maintained from the Pepperdine Libraries):

Local Chapter/Social Club National Chapter
Delta Tau Omega sorority Alpha Phi
Kappa Psi Delta sorority Delta Delta Delta
The Anchor Delta Gamma
Sigma Tau Alpha Gamma Phi Beta
Theta Alpha Phi sorority Kappa Alpha Theta
Zeta Kappa sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma
Pi Gamma Phi sorority Pi Beta Phi
Xi Kappa Sigma Sigma Kappa (dormant)
Beta Phi Alpha fraternity Beta Theta Pi (deactivated)
Lambda Omega Sigma fraternity Psi Upsilon
Tau Rho Sigma fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon
The Shield Sigma Chi
Sigma Psi fraternity Sigma Nu (deactivated)

Since the national transition, Pepperdine has welcomed four additional chapters to date:
