“I think the best part of being in a new chapter at a large and old school like Penn State is being able to write yourself into the history,” said Ellen Elmore, Tri Sig’s assistant director of new chapter growth. “Thinking about charter classes from 50, 60, or 100 years ago, you get to be that for Tri Sigma here.”
But...it’s not a new chapter, it’s a reopened chapter. They have decades of history already.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon has been closed at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Closure is due to RMF.

Currently at ULL, Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Chi, and Delta Delta Delta are under interim suspensions while going through investigations.

For the record, that's our chartered number not the active number. I believe we have 245 active chapters.

Tau Kappa Epsilon - 481 charters, 243 active

Alpha Phi Alpha - 414 charters, 354 active

Kappa Sigma- 412 charters, 320 active

Lambda Chi Alpha- 322 charters, 194 active

Sigma Alpha Epsilon - 317 charters, 239 active

Sigma Nu- 278 charters, 170 active

These are rough numbers.

The Kappa Sigma chapter at Indiana University has been suspended by the national Kappa Sigma headquarters. This is due to alcohol and hazing violations, per the article.

Alpha Sigma Alpha's Gamma Pi Chapter at Missouri Valley College has closed. The chapter was chartered in September 1967. The college in general appears to be having challenges where Greek life is concerned with TKE speaking about their declining membership.

Good grief....that article is a hot mess. It says it's written by Kieren Wilson, Staff Writer, and then the footer says it's a post by Dakota Cantwell. Either way, I can't make heads or tails of the situation.

The article states that part of the reason for a decline in Greek Life is due to an increase in enrollment of international students. Missouri Valley College reports "Missouri Valley College’s fall 2018 enrollment is 1,506, which is the largest enrollment in the College’s history. Of the 1,506 students currently enrolled at MVC, 549 are incoming freshmen, 687 are Missouri residents and 291 are international students."

MVC has two NPC sororities, Alpha Sigma Alpha and Theta Phi Alpha, and two NIC fraternities, Alpha Sigma Phi and Tau Kappa Epsilon.

Xidelt 12-05-2018 07:59 AM

I couldn't figure out who the Wilson quoted was. And it said there was a large turnover in the student body, but then offered no explanation. I also couldn't make heads or tails of situation with TKE in the article.

In addition to Kappa Sigma, three other fraternities have lost recognition at the University of Iowa: Delta Chi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Sigma Nu. The school found the groups guilty of violating an alcohol moratorium that had been imposed last year.

The Gamma Nu chapter of Alpha Delta Pi at William Jewell University (MO) has been closed due to low membership numbers. I can't figure out how to link it from ADPi's website but it's the first news item on there.

Sigma Chi at the University of Southern Mississippi has been given a 1 year suspension agreed on by the university and the fraternity leadership. The suspension includes social activities for one year, and alcohol suspension for 18 months. The chapter will not be allowed to take a new member class in either Spring '19 or Fall '19. Suspension is due to RMF.

Kappa Sigma has been given a one year suspension at the University of Central Arkansas. Suspension is due to RMF.
