Organizational History

Washington State University's Beta Omega chapter of the national Delta Gamma sorority was established in 1946. They were initially housed at 906 Thatuna (as of 2013 this location is the parking lot northwest of the old Bookie), and in 1949 moved to a newly constructed building at 603 Linden (Pullman's address system changed in 1972, at which point 603 Linden became 715 Linden). The building was renovated circa 1995, and as of 2013 Delta Gamma remains in that house.
