The History of Beta Delta
Beta Delta Chapter was chartered November 12, 1932 at Stowe Teachers' College, now known as Harris-Stowe State University, in St. Louis, Missouri. She was the first Historically Black Greek Lettered Organization to have an undergraduate chapter chartered in this city.
In 1954, Beta Delta became a city-wide chapter, with eleven colleges in her charter. She now continues the Sorority's mission through her tireless efforts to uplift the St. Louis community. It is because of our daring and gracious charter members that we continue to thrive in excellence.
