Shen Yo Sorority (1921-) | Special Collections & University Archives

Name: Shen Yo Sorority (1921-)


Historical Note: Named for the Chinese poet, the Shen Yo sorority held its first meeting 21 December 1921 at the home of Elsie Corrin, and was the first sorority at San Diego State College.  The group initially consisted of twelve members who sought to provide “inspiration of achievement” and find “joy in friendship” by forming the sorority.  Their colors were Chinese red and blue.  By the 1930s, Shen Yo consisted of over eighty members and included an alumni chapter.  The sorority held numerous dances, parties, teas, bridge games, and dinners.
