I am always amazed with New Openings and wonder what is wrong with MY School, Pittsburg State Univ. in Kansas?

Since I Graduated in 1967, yep true, LOL, DZ came on Campus and looked very good but suddenly left?

Fraternities on the other hand had a lot attempt to come on. TKE tried to come back on but lasted 1 1/2 year. I found out that SAE lasted @ 1 year and heard AKL lasted @ 1 year. New Organizations do not seem to do well at PSU?

Iíll say what I always say: when underground groups flourish and proliferate, it means the recognized groups are not giving the student body what they want.

They have a long history of GLO awkwardness at UAlbany.

I would also suggest that underground groups also flourish when the university administration places too many unreasonable restrictions on law-abiding recognized groups. In other words, a recognized GLO would be offering the students more (more socials, etc), but can't because the university-placed limitations. The loss of student interest in favor of underground groups, then, would be through no fault of their own.

I think what also happens is that when the law abiding groups are penalized for stupid things, it can make them resentful and just throw up their hands and go whole hog. In for a buck, in for a quarter.

It would be interesting to see where the SUNY system would be at now if they had never outlawed nationals for that period of time. They did it for a good reason, I guess, theoretically, but I question if the result had anything to do with that aim or furthered it.

Ole Miss definitely needs a new chapter in light of Theta's closing, but boy I hope something can change in terms of the toxic atmosphere. Otherwise, it will be a repeat of what happened to Theta and ZTA. Not sure what a campus can do to eradicate that level of toxicity.

I wish AXO the best, I have some AXO friends and it's a great organization. And given the proximity of some strong chapters, I think it would be a good addition to the existing lineup.

Any idea what other sororities might be tossing their hat into the lion's den this time?

Anyone want to chime in with any changes you think need to be done to the format that I use?
