Celebrating 50 Years of Service to the Howard County Community!

The Columbia (MD) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered in 1971, just four years after the new town of Columbia was established in Howard County, Maryland. Delta was the first African-American sorority or fraternity to start a chapter in Howard County, and is one of the largest Pan Hellenic chapters in Howard County.
