The last I saw was summer 2018, but I don't look for them on a regular basis.

Dear Panhellenic Community,

The members of the Kappa Omega Chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi have decided to surrender their charter and this decision has been accepted by their national organization. Kappa Omega will no longer be a chapter on our campus after the Spring 2019 semester. We are very saddened by this decision as this is a loss to our community; however, we respect the decision that chapter has made after much deliberation and thought. We will forever consider their current members our Panhellenic sisters.

The Panhellenic Council is working with the Alpha Omicron Pi national organization on a rechartering agreement. We have high hopes that Kappa Omega will join our Panhellenic community again in the future.

If you have any questions please contact us at uksorority@uky.edu.

Sincerely,

Katie Custer
Panhellenic President

Gamma Phi Beta has announced that we will begin our long-awaited colonization at California State University San Marcos (CA) in Spring 2020. We were selected for colonization back in January 2014; but had to wait for conditions to be right.

Delta Gamma announced that it will colonize at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, FL, in fall of 2019.

Kappa Kappa Gamma will be colonizing at Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ (just a stoneís throw from NYC) per Kappa and Seton Hall Panhellenic Instagram accounts.

I am always amazed with New Openings and wonder what is wrong with MY School, Pittsburg State Univ. in Kansas?

Since I Graduated in 1967, yep true, LOL, DZ came on Campus and looked very good but suddenly left?

Fraternities on the other hand had a lot attempt to come on. TKE tried to come back on but lasted 1 1/2 year. I found out that SAE lasted @ 1 year and heard AKL lasted @ 1 year. New Organizations do not seem to do well at PSU?:confused:

Alpha Chi Omega is presenting at Ole Miss next week.

Iíll say what I always say: when underground groups flourish and proliferate, it means the recognized groups are not giving the student body what they want.

They have a long history of GLO awkwardness at UAlbany.

I would also suggest that underground groups also flourish when the university administration places too many unreasonable restrictions on law-abiding recognized groups. In other words, a recognized GLO would be offering the students more (more socials, etc), but can't because the university-placed limitations. The loss of student interest in favor of underground groups, then, would be through no fault of their own.

33girl 04-22-2019 06:14 PM

I think what also happens is that when the law abiding groups are penalized for stupid things, it can make them resentful and just throw up their hands and go whole hog. In for a buck, in for a quarter.

It would be interesting to see where the SUNY system would be at now if they had never outlawed nationals for that period of time. They did it for a good reason, I guess, theoretically, but I question if the result had anything to do with that aim or furthered it.

Ole Miss definitely needs a new chapter in light of Theta's closing, but boy I hope something can change in terms of the toxic atmosphere. Otherwise, it will be a repeat of what happened to Theta and ZTA. Not sure what a campus can do to eradicate that level of toxicity.

I wish AXO the best, I have some AXO friends and it's a great organization. And given the proximity of some strong chapters, I think it would be a good addition to the existing lineup.

Any idea what other sororities might be tossing their hat into the lion's den this time?

I usually wait until May something.

Anyone want to chime in with any changes you think need to be done to the format that I use?

Now, if Alpha Chi Omega made it to Ole Miss, when do you all think that the colonisation process would begin?

Our Epsilon Beta chapter at West Virginia Institute of Technology relinquished it’s charter due to low membership.

Two years ago, WVIT relocated to the defunct Mountain State University in Beckley. The move was to stimulate student interest and increase admissions. This plan BACKFIRED. Admissions dropped from 2000+ to 1100. Alpha Sigma Tau is now the only Greek organization on campus.

LaneSig 04-29-2019 01:41 PM

Congratulations to the following groups on being chartered this past weekend:

Kappa Alpha- Emory University(GA)

Sigma Alpha Mu- University of Rhode Island

Theta Chi- Point Loma University(CA)

This is my school and it's heartbreaking to hear. I have so many friends from that chapter. As much as I hated the move, the old campus was literally falling out of the hill. They had to shut two dorms because of it.

If they are picked, they would like to participate in Fall 2020 Recruitment (just the first round or two). Then their first formal recruitment with their new colony/chapter would be in Fall 2020. I enjoyed their presentation. I think they would be a great fit at Ole Miss.

LaneSig 04-30-2019 12:35 PM

Congratulations to the following groups on receiving their charters:

Alpha Sigma Phi- Western Carolina University(NC), University of Toronto(Ontario,CN)
