Willard Sorority

Oldest & Largest Local Sorority in the United States

Home: Welcome


In the fall of 1889, two years after the founding of Nebraska Wesleyan University, seven young women of similar ideals founded the first society of women on the Wesleyan campus. These women - Pauline Winter, Elsie Bromwell, Julia Taskett, Myrtle Applebee, Grace Becker, Grace Aumiller, and Blanche Martin - chose for the name of their society, Willard, in memory of Frances E. Willard, who was a symbol of perfect womanhood.
