Feathers was a women's pep organization established at the Municipal University of Omaha in 1935. The first official emblem of the organization was an "O" crossed with a diagonal feather, intended to evoke the image of a cardinal, the school mascot at the time. The first president of the organization was Dorothy Anderson, who was also then president of Sigma Chi Omicron. At the outset, Feathers included representatives from several OU sororities. By about 1937, Feathers had become a chapter of Phi Sigma Chi, a national pep organization. The Feathers were active until circa 1962.
