Largest NPHC and Non NPHC fraternity/sorority?

Just wondering if anyone out there knows which NPHC fraternity or sorority is the largest? I have been told that it is Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity but not sure.

Also, which non-NPHC sorority/fraternity is the largest?

You might want to just ask the latter question here, since you have already asked the first question in a NPHC forum, where all of us can read and respond.

I think this question has been posted before somewhere on GC. Or, I've at least seen the answer on the web somewhere.

This question can be answered a few different ways.

1. Most active chapters.
2. Most initiated members.
3. Most current financial members.

Question

When you say non-NPHC org, are you referring to:

- only social orgs (regardless or ethnicity makeup)
- only black orgs not belonging to the NPHC
- only NIC/NPC orgs
- Doesn't matter, as long as it's not an NPHC org
- Any or all of the above

Your question is too broad to answer definitively. If you can narrow it down a bit, we can zero in on an answer a little better for you

When we give our stats publicly, we give them as the total number of initiated members since day one, and the total number of chapters chartered. Any other stats are published internally, and are not for public consumption.

To those who are thinking of answering I am only referring to those initiated.

Rainman

when I say non-NPHC i mean any GLO that's not in the Divine 9

sorry for all the confusion. I should have been more specific.

That's still a little too broad. Do you mean NPC and NIC organizations? (Though, some Divine 9 members are also members of NIC)

Wow, it seemed like such a simple question. But I guess not.

Simple

I think people are reading too much into the question just answer it to the best of your ability.

Thanks

I have a soror who is very 'hard core' about membership. She feels that if you are not financial you are not a member.

From the numbers that I have seen on membership I would venture to guess that they give numbers in terms of initiated members since day one.

yeah, we now say all members are sorors, but not all sorors are members (defined as a financial soror.) But when we list our numbers we actually list the number of sorors from day one.

Largest, oldest, living-est, so what?

Another category, which outfit has the most living alumni? I'd
guess TKE due to their late expansion, and, for example, SAE, in
1856 beginning, would obviously have many now deceased.
But really, in the final analysis, what difference does it make, and
did we weigh these things heavily in our choice of houses?
Besides, we have pretty much covered it all previously and there
seems to be a different philosophy in categorization of members,
so why don't we just move on?
For example, why don't we concentrate on who has the cleanest
fraternity/sorority houses? I hear abundant criticisms from kids
who go thru rush and do not pledge due to the abominable conditions of the house...do we no longer have inspections?
