How is that campus going to function with only 6 NPC chapters?

I have no idea, especially since quota was so high during the last formal recruitment.

That is going to put so much pressure on the remaining chapters to take larger new member classes.

Gamma Phi has been on that campus since 1929…going on 100 years. And I just read that in the spring the campus is choosing a NEW SORORITY—either Alpha Phi or Alpha Delta Pi.
That just seems CRUEL and SO UNFAIR. How dare they immediately replace a chapter that old with a new group? They need more competition, but….

I remember when NPC was thinking about expanding in 2015 but they ended up not going through with it.

Not to steer it too far off, but IFC actually is in the final stages of choosing a new fraternity. The 4 potential fraternities that could be selected are Delta Sigma Phi, Kappa Alpha Order, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and Theta Chi.

My cousin's wife was an ADPi there. They folded awhile back.

I feel that Greekrank had a lot to do with Gamma Phi closing.

There was a thread "declaring" who would be the new bottom . This is exactly why Gphi closed and why they haven't had a new chapter come on in ages. I hope this causes everyone to take a long look at themselves and the toxic attitudes they've had.

ADPi and ZTA still own their homes at SMU. They are leased out as "Panhellenic Houses I and II". Maybe one will return if SMU is open to expansion.

"Panhellenic I and II Houses are independently managed by the housing corporations of two national sorority chapters who are not currently operating at SMU. Alpha Delta Pi and Zeta Tau Alpha house corporations lease out their houses to affiliated sorority women through their own independent processes."

I don't believe cruelty and daring necessarily has anything to do with their leaving. They simply saw the handwriting on the wall. According to old greekchat NPC Chapters and Campuses listings (by irishpipes) for SMU, Gamma Phi Beta has had more than a few low-number formal recruitment runs during the past decade. It's likely they knew for awhile the campus was bringing in a new group, making it doubly hard for any struggling group to continue a numbers rebound.

I saw that and was so annoyed because it appears the toxic atmosphere that negatively impacted Gamma Phi Beta is continuing on that campus.

So with ADPi previously having been established at SMU would that give them priority over another organization?

Some sororities, when they leave, get some kind of written agreement that they have first dibs when a new sorority is wanted. I don't know if ADPi had one.

Thank you carnation. I was always under the impression that chapters that had closed would have a priority if they wished to return, but that doesn't seem to be the case in every situation.

I know some colleges that instead of inviting sororities to present, asked back a group that had left. No presentations from anyone.
