In the late 1970's in San Diego, there was interest in establishing Sigma Theta Tau International chapters at the University of San Diego, Point Loma Nazarene University and at San Diego State University. Eventually, USD and PLNU would join to form the Zeta Mu Chapter-at-Large and SDSU would form the Gamma Gamma chapter.
