History of Triota: (from http://www.msudenver.edu/women/studentorganizations/iotaiotaiotahonorsociety/)
The Alpha Chapter of Iota Iota Iota, Triota, at Metropolitan State University of Denver held its first induction ceremony in the fall of 1992 in order to recognize the academic achievements of students in Women’s Studies. The Greek letter, iota, was selected for the name to represent the three goddesses Inana, Ishtar, and Isis. Iota Iota Iota strives to maintain the feminist values central to Women’s Studies and encourage diversity, egalitarianism, and supportive academic environment for all students.
