The 1985 National Convention was the 100-year celebration for Alpha Chi Omega. The five days were packed with activities, including a special DePauw Day, where attendees packed onto buses in groups and made their way to Greencastle, Indiana, for a tour of campus, a pageant of our founding, a concert by the Founders' Memorial and presentation by National President D'Alice Cochran.
History, heritage and purpose of Alpha Chi Omega was the central theme for the 1985 trip to the founding site, DePauw University. This letter walked attendees through the program of the day and instructions on how to keep with their group. One side features the instructions and welcome letter while the other is a map of the campus.
DePauw Day was a special excursion during the Centennial Celebration, the 44th National Convention. With more than 1,700 attendees, members had to be led in groups so everyone could enjoy the experience. This keychain was supplied in the registration packet and indicated which group each member would travel with to DePauw that day.
