On May 9, 1969, ten students on the campus of Lincoln University were inducted into Groove Phi Groove Social Fellowship Incorporated. These young men laid the foundation for The Mighty Lion Chapter on the Lincoln University campus. The founding chapter fathers of the Mighty Lion are collectively known as The Terminous Ten – Spring ’69.
In fifty-four years, roll-call for Lincoln University Groove Phi Groove members includes 170 members from 44 pledge lines. Fellowmen that crossed the “burning sands” on the campus of Lincoln University are currently active with Groove Phi Groove Nationals and regularly participate in regional Groove Phi Groove Graduate Chapter and Lincoln University Alumni activity.
