A black and white image of Delta Sigma Theta probates, or sorority sisters who have not reached full status with the sorority. The women are wearing matching outfits, which conists of white overcoats, blouses, skirts, stockings, and high-heeled shoes. In addition, they are each carrying a stuffed animal in the shape of a duck, and a plate of food with a sandwich and small box of milk on top. They are most likely participating in an initiation rite. Behind them can be seen the exterior of Faith Hall, which has a covered entranceway with a sign that reads, "Class of '60." A palm tree also stands behind them. On the back of the photograph is the note, "Delta's probates." The photographer of the image is unknown.
