AL-Huntsville moves toward 'frat row' for 2006

UAH moves toward 'frat row' for 2006

Trustees approve revised plans; chancellor calls for restored state funds

The University of Alabama in Huntsville took another step toward opening a "fraternity row" in fall 2006 when University of Alabama trustees approved revised plans for the fraternity and sorority houses during a meeting Friday on the Huntsville campus.

.......

Private donors, both corporate and individual, have helped tremendously with campus capital improvement, he said, including the planned UAH Fraternity and Sorority Complex.

Greek housing

The Greek housing plans now call for more of a fraternity "loop" than a row, with the first four or five houses set along a landscaped circle off John Wright Drive, south of the University Fitness Center, said Ray Pinner, UAH vice president for finance and administration. They will share a traditional, white-columns-and-brick look, but UAH will work with the groups to give each house its own identity.

Originally there were to be four 12-bedroom houses set along a street. But as designs were developed, 10-bedroom houses worked out better and were preferred by the Greek organizations, Pinner said. Revised plans also call for better landscaping and parking.

Anonymous donors pledged $1.2 million for the four-house project, but an additional donation of $1.25 million has been offered if there is enough fraternity and sorority participation to build five houses.

The revised budget for up to five houses is $4.6 million, with the donations accounting for $2.5 million and UAH physical plant funds making up the balance.

If only four houses are built, the budget is $3.3 million, with includes $1.2 million in gifts and UAH providing the balance.

Four of UAH's six fraternities and two of the four sororities have signed agreements of understanding, Pinner said. They must guarantee to fill the houses and come up with more than $50,000 in deposits for rent and furnishings, among other conditions, to qualify.

Unhappy

Promise to fill and pay?

Greek Organizations depending on size at the moment can only Pay when in real time. from a down side, bad problem looming on horizon.

We can only wish them good luck. Look no farther that U T MurfreesBoro to get an Idea?

Groundbreaking!

Our "proposed" plan is coming true. At 6pm tonight (9.8.05) we will hold the groundbreaking ceremony for our Greek Row at UAH. Altogether, there will be 5 houses- Delta Chi Fraternity, Sigma Nu Fraternity, Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, Delta Zeta Sorority and Kappa Delta Sorority.

Thanks to all those who wished us luck-

Thumbs up

Fasntastic to be assured!!

The idea of having Houses that wont put the GLOs in a Money crunch is idea;l and will keep the Houses full!

Greeks can and should be a viable and important part of any Campi.

Good to see input by Both Adm. and GLO to figure out where and which direction to go with!
