Chimes Junior Honor Society for women was founded in 1918 at Ohio State University. In 1948, when Chimes became a national organization, the WVU women’s honorary Rhododendron became affiliated with the national organization of Chimes. Although the national organization later disbanded, some chapters (including WVU’s) decided to retain the name and symbols of Chimes. Chimes opened to male membership in 1977.

“Members give their service and leadership to the advancement of university interests, welfare, and unity. They stimulate scholarship and sponsor cultural trips and discussions with guest speakers.” (From the 1967 Monticola)
