St. Anthony Hall

The Xi Chapter of Delta Psi, known as St. Anthony Hall, was active for a few years before the Civil War and then returned in the 1920s. Like the other chapters around the country, St. Anthony Hall at Carolina has a distinctive literary focus. The chapter has long hosted readings and a regular "Pancakes and Poetry" event. St. Anthony Hall has been a trailblazer among campus fraternities: in 1967 it was the first social fraternity to accept an African American member, when basketball star Charles Scott joined, and in 1971 it became the first to go coed, admitting women as members on an equal basis.
