    While our official charter date is Feb. 28, 1882, in 1856 a student at South Carolina College by the name of Talbot Adams was initiated. He was sent a charter to start a chapter but his efforts failed. He is listed as a member of Alabama Mu.


    This means that had he been successful SC Delta would have been one of the first five chapters of SAE.


    Also, SC Delta members were responsible for founding NC Theta at Davidson College, SC Lambda at SC Military Academy (The Citadel), NC Delta at UNC Wilmington in 1981, and SC Mu at Erskine College (closed).
