The beginning of the University was a turbulent time, with plenty of criticism from the community, and a constant fight to prove its own worth. The school grew in many ways in the first twenty years, and made changes that ultimately started the transformation into what we see today. The Morrill act set the stage, giving Lincoln the land to build their own college. It started out small with only twenty students taking college courses; choosing from three course paths. As the years progressed, new chancellors brought new ideas, and the University evolved. Eventually the position of the community shifted from hostile to accepting as the University of Nebraska set the foundation for years to come.

Delta Delta Delta was begun by Sarah Ida Shaw and her two friends in November of 1888 at Boston College. The bold idea of a fraternal organization for women was unheard of, so the three women organized their own.

St. Judes became their official philanthropic outlet in the 1970's and since have raised money for the cause.
