Biographical / Historical

The Philomatheans Literary Society, also known as the Philos, was a women's organization at Sam Houston. In 1959, members of the society became charter members for the Delta Zeta chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority. In 2019, Zeta Tau Alpha moved off campus, and their house became part of SHSU Residence Life and was renamed the Texas House.
