Pie a Pi Phi
Installation at Illinois Beta-Delta
The chapter is the only dually named chapter in the Fraternity. The Illinois Beta Chapter was installed at Lombard College on November 7, 1872 as Iota of I.C. Sorosis. The Illinois Delta Chapter was installed at Knox College on March 7, 1884 as Upsilon of I.C. Sorosis. When Lombard College closed in 1930, the students and chapter could transfer to Knox College. Thus, the chapter took on both names and became Illinois Beta-Delta in June 1930.
Living at Illinois Beta-Delta
The house has seven rooms including the basement, kitchen, living room, dining room, office, history room and upstairs/attic. No women live in the house, as is the custom for Greek women on Knox College campus.
The members are proud of the dual charters. The chapter’s original charter, Illinois Delta, is displayed along with Lombard College’s charter, Illinois Beta. The chapter has both of these charters since Lombard closed during the Great Depression and the chapter took in the Lombard Pi Phis.
There are also many antiques in the house acquired from alumnae and previous chapter members such as silver pieces including tea sets and old pictures and composites.
