Epsilon Theta Chapter members at Sigma Chi Fraternity’s philanthropy event Derby Days in 1989.

Epsilon Theta Chapter (Clemson) 

Epsilon Theta Chapter was installed at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina, on April 9, 1988.

To celebrate Gamma Phi Beta’s 128th chapter, a banquet was held at Tiger Den, Memorial Stadium. Extension Supervisor Susan Pinkard (Georgia) was the mistress of ceremonies. She was joined by Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Nick Lomax, who welcomed Gamma Phi Beta to campus. Other special guests were Director of Student Development Joy S. Smith, Teresa P. Evans, former advisor to sororities, Interfraternity Council President Todd Pigeon, among others. Gifts to Epsilon Theta included a president's badge set with turquoise and a silver punch bowl and tray. The most prized gift of all, the chapter charter, was presented by Marjory Shupert.

The morning after the banquet, the new initiates treated their parents to brunch. Each was given a mug with the words "Gamma Phi Beta Mom" or "Gamma Phi Beta Dad." Installation was the culmination of a semester full of activities for colony members. Immediately after their January pledging, Gamma Phi Beta hosted a reception to introduce them to the campus community. Administrators, advisors, campus leaders and members of each sorority and fraternity attended and welcomed the group with plants, flowers, balloons and other gifts.
