The primary subject of this joint interview is the founding of the Iota Zeta Chapter of the national service fraternity Delta Sigma Theta. Logan served as first Vice President and Dean of Pledges. Logan and Sullivan also discuss the group's activities on campus and their thoughts on the reason the IWU chapter closed. The two friends also recount their recent efforts in getting the chapter restarted and tell stories about the connections they made in life because of their Iota Zeta friendships.

Other topics include dorm and social life, "short term" and the cost of tuition. They discuss IWU's small town setting, the curriculum and the effect both had on nurturing their friendships and influencing their world views.

Toney-Logan and Sullivan express their hope for future students finding out about their work through this interview and the Iota Zeta records and scrapbook donated by soror Cheryl Portwood (RG 11-5/1/4 and 18-8/5) as a means for encouraging interest in DST today.
