The Delta Mu Chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota was chartered at Temple University on December 8, 1964. We are a member of region VIII and province Chi A. In 2014, we celebrated our 50th anniversary.
We consist of a mixture of music and non-music majors, united by our shared love of music. We celebrate music together by performing for eachother and practicing our musicianship. This is a truly unique part of our sisterhood: together, we grow not only as sisters, but as musicians.

The Delta Mu chapter was established on December 8, 1964. Eighteen students, one faculty member, and a patroness member were initiated on that day, marking the beginning of a long journey for these women and for many others to come.
The chapter struggled from 1975 until 1981, marking a span of inactivity at Temple University. Once reinstalled, the chapter faced new difficulties. In 1986, the faculty of Temple University went on strike, forcing fraternity business to be conducted off campus, at member homes. Even in the face of adversity, the sisters persevered, continuing on in the spirit of Sigma Alpha Iota.
