This is what I was thinking, as well.

Is the Green Book referring to sanctions from a school or sanctions from an NPC sorority/college Panhellenic? I am admittedly not an expert on the Green Book.

There are informal off-campus satellite houses at a number of other schools. Seniors pass the leases down. For example, I've heard of this at Washington & Lee.

This might lead to the PNMs to be more open about where they end up rather than focusing on rank. Maybe someone was dead set on ABC and if ABC is out of recruitment she might rethink her choices.

But someone mentioned that COB/informal could occur if the investigation doesn't yield anything significant, so the houses can probably put together a NMC.

No. No. No. Sigh. No.

oncegreek, TLLK & I are very familiar with UCSB & we have had private convos about the greek system there. Their opinions are valid. I happen to agree with them.

And I've had convos w/ AZ-Alpha Xi about what my other Panhellenic sisters here have shared vis-a-vis the Green Book and this situation.

Again UGH UGH UGH.

Az Theta is right. Greek life is not as popular as it is at say, USC, or even UCLA. Girls would rather not join if they are not invited to their perceived favorite houses.

I'm the Regional Collegiate Recruitment Specialist for DG in California and this whole situation has been chaotic from the onset on Sunday morning. My understanding is that none of this is going through Panhel in anyway and is all coming from the University admin directly to the groups. The numbers of PNMs didn't decline as much as we expected after news of this got out so we shall see if we end up dividing all the PNMs over the four remaining orgs.

The University told us (originally when only three orgs were involved) that it would take most of the quarter for them to complete their investigations since they are understaffed in that office?!?

Hi dukedg-First of all thank you for all of the work that you do for the Region especially during this very busy time of the year. :)

Thank you for sharing the information that you have heard in regards to the very unfortunate situation at UCSB.



Glad to hear that the number of PNMs didn't decline as much as it was expected.

Yes I understand that the "satellite houses" are still ongoing in 2021. Considering the housing crisis that the university has had and is currently experiencing, these types of houses are still needed.

How grueling to suddenly have much larger PNM groups coming thru recruitment, due to half the houses no longer recruiting.

Again, it is a freedom of association issue. Our Alpha chapter sued over something like this and it was determined they were allowed to recruit informally.

If they don’t want to back up the NPC rules, then they need to derecognize that college’s chapter of Panhellenic.

And this is an interim suspension, not something meant to stick.

• Affect a sorority chapter’s quota or total.
• Affect the time of new member acceptance and/or initiation.
• Forbid the right of an NPC sorority to vote in College Panhellenic meetings

This is how I remembered it as well.

Article in the University newspaper.

Quote:

According to UCSB spokesperson Andrea Estrada, “multiple Greek organization houses were placed on suspension recently in connection with allegations related to hazing.” Estrada did not specify the specific nature of the alleged hazing.
“Issuing an interim suspension is the campus’s protocol when hazing allegations meet the threshold of a charge against the Student Conduct Code. It is done as a precautionary, protective measure while the investigation and adjudication process takes place,” Estrada said in a statement to the Nexus.
UCSB Panhellenic President Sophia Lake declined to comment on the hazing allegations against the four sororities.

I think I read that UCSB’s recruitment ended sometime this weekend—not sure when BID DAY is.
Does anybody know how many girls had originally signed for recruitment, stayed in and then pledged one of the FOUR eligible groups?

Cookiez17 09-25-2021 10:02 PM

Bid day was today actually. I only caught a glimpse of Delta Gamma's pledge class on instagram and it looked pretty big.

Cookiez17, can you clarify where you saw that? I looked at DG's UCSB's Insta page and saw nothing - only a picture from a day or two ago of two sisters. I also checked out Gamma Phi's UCSB Instagram page (they also participated in rush) and no Bid Day pics either.

I'm thinking maybe you saw this on Facebook? Curious to see, thanks.
