Installation at Alabama Alpha

A local group, Theta Pi, was formed in 1925. The chapter was installed on October 7, 1927. The chapter’s charter was withdrawn in 1989. The chapter was reinstalled on February 10, 1991. The Initiation Ceremony took place in the chapter room at Stockham Hall on campus. The installation banquet was held at Vestavia Country Club. Tables were covered in ivory cloths with centerpieces of crystal angels. Those angels were given to the new initiates at the conclusion of the evening.
