Headed to Potsdam for Reunion Weekend? The Zeta Gamma Sigma alumni association will be selling expandable bangle bracelets at the Potsdam Summer Festival, customized with sorority letters, symbols and colors. They also have made bangles to represent both universities. Stop by their table at the corner of Market St. and Main St on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday - they are $15 each and proceeds go to the Zeta alumni association.
The Beta chapter of Sigma Tau Psi Fraternity was recognized by State University College at Potsdam on May 22, 1965. The alpha chapter is at SUNY Geneseo. At one point there were nine chapters, which formed an alliance called the Confederation of Sig Tau.
The brothers moved into 59 Elm Street in 1968. The fraternity went bankrupt in 1974 for "a variety of reasons" according to one alumni.
A local sorority founded on November 6, 1960 and recognized by SUNY Potsdam at the annual ISC picnic on May 21, 1961. The sisters started accepting Clarkson women in the early 70s. The sorority was recognized by Clarkson until 1987 when the university stopped recognizing all of the SUNY Potsdam sororities. Women from both schools still join the sorority today.
The sisters purchased their first house at 4 Hamilton Street in 1963 and their current home at 51 Elm Street on November 26, 1968.
