In the spring of 2006, 11 young women came together recognizing the need for a new women's organization at California State University, Fullerton. They aimed to establish an organization that would promote academic achievement, social improvement, and a sisterhood where their individuality would remain uncompromised. On December 3, 2006, those 11 women came one step closer to their goal as they crossed into Tau Theta Pi as the Founding Class of the Gamma Colony. Although their sorority officially recognized them, they had yet to be acknowledged by the university they sought to improve. After several trials and defeats, the Founding Class never lost their passion or their courage of conviction. Finally, on January 15, 2008, the university accepted the sisters of Tau Theta Pi into the Multicultural Greek Council. This date honors the culmination of nearly two years of perseverance, dedicated to sharing the true essence of sisterhood, defined by each sister of Tau Theta Pi.
