Congratulations to Sigma Pi for the recent chartering of their East Carolina University(NC) chapter.

I'm still salty about this. So they couldn't all make it to chapter meetings? Is this the problem I'm seeing? We have academic rigor. We have other responsibilities outside of Kappa Delta. I don't see how making their own sorority will help. Just lowering quota in their bylaws?

Also, they're using Tri Delta's hand symbols and that's not cool. Even if it is just a literal delta, make your own.

For real.

DST and Tri Delta called. They'd like their hand symbols back please.

I know it's been awhile and I am late to the party, but has the thought ever occurred to those women that their sisters, daughters, granddaughters will be legacies to a chapter which is only at one campus? Their relatives will no longer be Kappa Delta legacies. It may not matter to them now, but fast forward 20+ years and DD won't be a KD legacy.

Holy Esprit, Batman!!

I'd guess as far as the legacy question, they wouldn't really want their daughters to be legacies to a group whose policies they disagree with. (Plus heaven only knows what legacy policies will look like in 20 years if everyone keeps reproducing at the same rate.)

This was announced a couple months ago, but I haven't seen anything about it: Armstrong State University is being consolidated into Georgia Southern University. Wonder what this will mean for the Greek organizations at Armstrong specifically-two NPC chapters are not present at GSU and all three are much smaller than their GSU counterparts.

How is that going to work with Savannah and Statesboro an hour apart from each other? Is Armstrong State going to just become a satellite of Georgia Southern?

I would imagine the Greek systems would just be independent of each other - like UAB/UAH/UA and Auburn and AUM.

I have two nieces that are members of a co-op at Purdue (similar to locals) and the legacy question never bothered them. Much like other locals, I don't think it will mean all that much to them.

I'm not sure if it's like that or if they're becoming one school like Southern Polytechnic State and Kennesaw State a few years back. In that instance, the chapters at SPSU were closed or merged into KSU, hence my concern. From what I've gathered, the two campuses are going to be one school in two locations.

^^^ In that situation, our Kennesaw State chapter absorbed both chapters and the Southern Polytechnic chapter is now closed. But, didn't the Southern Poly campus actually close?
