Where the records of the society are accurate, there are still compromises made to fit real events into narrow categories. Yet here we attempt to do that and track events not in the society and where records are incomplete. Chapters have histories where indicated. Names of institutions are the modern ones. Chapter names are the ones most commonly used. ‘Legitimate’ means 1) founded by the Alpha or a successor national, or 2) legitimized after founding by the Alpha or successor national. Where one chapter was replaced by one of a fundamentally different kind, both chapters are listed. Not every chapter at the same institution was legitimate. Dates are the founding, (or probable founding), and end. However, where a chapter was succeeded by an independent organization, there may be no end date given; not to claim that there is still an active T.N.E. chapter there, but to indicate there is still something going on at that institution that needs to be accounted for.

The following colleges and universities have been listed as institutions where there was a chapter of Theta Nu Epsilon, but they were listed as such by an unreliable source. We present the list here for what it is worth. It is likely that, if there were chapters at these places, they would have been in the 1950’s and 1960’s, (some of the institutions did not exist until the 1960’s). These would have been entirely illegitimate chapters, and probably engaged in problematic activities. They certainly did not participate in, or understand the traditions of the society. Members of these groups were not in reality members of anything connected to Theta Nu Epsilon.
