The December 11, 1939, issue of LIFE Magazine featured members of Sigma Chapter (Kansas). The pictorial, entitled “Kansas Girls: Life is Fun for Them at State University,” followed the day-to-day activities of sorority members on campus. The feature showed how the women entertained themselves, how they announced engagements, what chores they had to complete in the sorority house and even which fashion trends were most popular for each sorority: “White sweatshirt cardigans are Gamma Phi Beta’s fad this year. One of the Gamma Phis got the campus cardigan agency, so her sisters loyally bought cardigans from her.”
