What Titchou said. Also...

Am I wrong? Is it still possible to be "closed" for expansion even with such high numbered Pledge Classes?

Can someone explain the process to me? I've talked to many other students who also agree we need to add more houses. We're missing KD, Pi Phi, GPhi, AOPi, AGD, Theta, DZ, and a lot of others!
The number of new members in each class is not, in itself, an indication of needed expansion. As Titchou quoted from the MOI, the need is based on capacity. At one school, pledge classes could be hovering around 30, creating a need for expansion, while at another school, pledge classes of 70 are perfectly fine and business can go on as usual.

And even if there was a need at your school, adding another sorority isn't going to bring pledge classes down from 80+ to 40.

Who are these other women who believe another sorority is needed? Are they sorority members? Do they know the ins and outs of expansion, what's required, and how long it takes?
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
