We say that Sigma Delta Tau is forever. We also say that the women we meet during our college years will be our friends for life, but life moves forward, and sometimes it’s hard to maintain the friendships started so many years ago. However, one of the special parts about SDT is how you can pick right back up with those friendships after years apart. The Nu-University of Minnesota women know firsthand!
The Nu women recently organized a second annual brunch at the home of one of their chapter sisters in Minnesota. Most of the women who attended the brunch joined SDT in the mid-1950s to mid-1960s. Many of the women knew each other from their days at the University of Minnesota, but others met for the first time. The women enjoyed catching up with both good friends and sisters they did not know as well. Each woman shared a memory from her time in the chapter, remembering food, initiation, meeting husbands at social events, and even hearing the news of Kennedy’s assassination.
After so many years removed from their college days, the Nu women picked back up like they were on campus yesterday. Each woman agreed to remain in touch with the sisters who made their college years and beyond so special and to get together annually to catch up on life’s events.
