The 1962 Miss Microcosm was Chi Omega Sweetheart and married student Gwen Steege, who the Microcosm listed as having "fair features, feminine grace, and charm of personality...." The runners-up included Brenda Sadler, Barbara Duvall, Carnie Green, Lynn Davis, Barbara Geyer, Ginny Sutton, and Ginny Krueger.
