Sorority for the Deaf

The first chapter of Alpha Sigma Theta was formed on the this date (April 17) in 1984. Students at the Rochester Institute of Technology started the first chapter to focus on the deaf community. The only chapter that remains active is on the campus of California State University at Northridge which was started in 1987. Six of the members are non-hearing members while there are 15 hearing members. The RIT chapter was suspended some two years ago for drug use during an event.
