My fall/winter 2020 edition of The Adelphean shared that ADPi has closed our Theta Tau chapter at the University of Pennsylvania. This isn't surprising, given that they had struggled in membership size and recruitment from their establishment onwards, but I'm still sad for the Philly-area alumnae and collegians.

Kappa Alpha Order has been closed at the University of Tennessee. Closure is due to RMF.

Bloomsburg University(PA) has rescinded recognition of Kappa Delta Rho and Lambda Chi Alpha due to RMF. A local fraternity (Sigma Iota Omega) and a local sorority (Chi Theta Pi) have also been closed for a minimum of 4 years.

Kappa Sigma has closed its chapter at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Closure is due to "violations of the fraternity's code of conduct".

Pi Kappa Alpha has suspended its Alpha Rho chapter at The Ohio State University for failing to "collectively live up to the standards and violations of University policy". The international fraternity and the University have both agreed on the closure.

The AOII chapter at Washington University in St Louis has been closed due to the Abolish Greek Life movement. The chapter was no longer viable.

Abolish this, students with an inflated sense of yourselves

Can you explain what you mean? Did the chapter elect to relinquish their charter because they no longer support Greek life or did AGL proponents disrupt this chapter's ability to have successful operations?

The atmosphere for Greek life has become toxic at Wash U. It has been particularly hard on sororities with all of them down to membership numbers in the 20s and 30s. AOII did have members who wanted to continue but it was not viable for them to be able to. What makes me the most sad about this is the bullying and sheer vile that all of our chapter members are enduring and a University that has seemingly washed its hands of it.

Two local sororities at the University of Texas-Permian Basin are looking to affiliate with NPC sororities. The campus is open for expansion.

There are currently no NPC, NPHC, or MCGO sororities at UTPB. There is one NIC, Kappa Delta Rho.

What a shame. Thank you for clarifying.

I have a friend (sorority member) whose young adult daughter (non-Greek) is pursuing a graduate degree at Wash U. She told her mom that she’s teaching some classes as an adjunct and that she’s heard that the current sorority memberships run “between 5 and 25-30”. If that’s right—GOOD GRIEF! She also told her mom that a faculty member told her all the sororities bled members over the summer and are badly compromised (if that’s true).
So why has the Greek Life Office not stepped in to help? They MUST know that a good % of alumni/ae donation come from Greek members.

JayhawkAOII is correct—the atmosphere MUST be toxic! How do you even recruit in that environment?
