The records of North Carolina State University's chapter of the Chi Epsilon Honor Fraternity include correspondence, meeting minutes, photographs, clippings, membership rosters, information on the formation of the chapter, and other general information. Some issues of the national Fraternity newsletter, The Transit are also included. Materials range in date from 1948 to 1978.
The Chi Epsilon National Honor Fraternity was established at the University of Illinois in 1923, to act as an honorary organization for students studying civil engineering. Students at NC State petitioned to form a chapter in 1948, a granted request designating them as the 23rd chapter of the national organization. Two years later (1950), NC State hosted the 11th national meeting (Conclave) of the organization, which took place in Withers Hall, the original engineering building on NC State's campus. The chapter remained active as of 2008.
