For the record, that's our chartered number not the active number. I believe we have 245 active chapters.

Tau Kappa Epsilon - 481 charters, 243 active

Alpha Phi Alpha - 414 charters, 354 active

Kappa Sigma- 412 charters, 320 active

Lambda Chi Alpha- 322 charters, 194 active

Sigma Alpha Epsilon - 317 charters, 239 active

Sigma Nu- 278 charters, 170 active

These are rough numbers.

Harvard Alpha Phi has reopened this semester after closing last spring in response to the single-gender organization sanctions.

The Kappa Sigma chapter at Indiana University has been suspended by the national Kappa Sigma headquarters. This is due to alcohol and hazing violations, per the article.

Alpha Sigma Alpha's Gamma Pi Chapter at Missouri Valley College has closed. The chapter was chartered in September 1967. The college in general appears to be having challenges where Greek life is concerned with TKE speaking about their declining membership.

Good grief....that article is a hot mess. It says it's written by Kieren Wilson, Staff Writer, and then the footer says it's a post by Dakota Cantwell. Either way, I can't make heads or tails of the situation.

The article states that part of the reason for a decline in Greek Life is due to an increase in enrollment of international students. Missouri Valley College reports "Missouri Valley College’s fall 2018 enrollment is 1,506, which is the largest enrollment in the College’s history. Of the 1,506 students currently enrolled at MVC, 549 are incoming freshmen, 687 are Missouri residents and 291 are international students."

MVC has two NPC sororities, Alpha Sigma Alpha and Theta Phi Alpha, and two NIC fraternities, Alpha Sigma Phi and Tau Kappa Epsilon.

I couldn't figure out who the Wilson quoted was. And it said there was a large turnover in the student body, but then offered no explanation. I also couldn't make heads or tails of situation with TKE in the article.
