The Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly
The Sterling Silver Rose
The Sorority’s shield, created by the Founding Monarchs, has special significance for members of Theta Nu Xi. A replica of the shield has been made into a pin that is only to be worn by initiated members of the Sorority.
LINE NAMES & NUMBERS
Each member has a line name and line number. Each group of new members initiated together within a chapter also has a collective line name that represents the group. These names are unique to each member and each line, and they hold special meaning for our sisters. The significance of the names and numbers are personal and private, only to be shared amongst members of the Sorority.
An emergence is the public presentation of a chapter’s newest initiates. It is a celebration of the new members, the Sorority and chapter history, and it also highlights the individual personality of each line. Most often, though not always, our chapters choose a performance format to present their new members to campus, friends, and their families.
