Window to Hope’s History: Sibs and Emmys Celebrate a Century

Siblings in the college’s Greek system, the Sibylline sorority and Emersonian fraternity also share a birth year in 1919. In the century since they were founded, thousands of students have built and continued traditions of friendship and service that have thrived to the present. Today, there are more than 2,000 living Sib and Emersonian alumni, and together the two groups have 135 members on campus.



Shown are the college’s earliest photos of the Sibylline sorority and the Emersonian fraternity, the former from the 1920 Milestone yearbook, and the latter, circa 1920, from the Joint Archives of Holland.
