2017/2018 Colonies/Expansions/Charters/Closures
This list is for expansions, charterings, and closings in the school year '17-'18.

-Please site a source if you have one.

-Please let me know if I have made a mistake. I try to keep this thread as accurate as possible.

This list is not a "scorekeeping" guide. It is not being used to say any one group is more successful or "higher tier" (shudder) than another. This thread is for those of us interested in the growth of all Greek Life organizations.

Good luck to all groups presenting, colonizing and chartering in 2017/2018.

I can say for a fact this is not correct. Omega Phi Alpha does not have any colonies going on currently. I believe this may be Alpha Phi Omega.

I mistakenly transposed "Alpha" and "Omega" when I read GoldenBows's post. Thanks for the correction.
