Lightbulb Reactivating Fraternity

Our fraternity went inactive in 1972 with nearly 50 years of service to our college and the community. As an alumnus I, along with active Brothers from our other two chapters, are looking to reactivate our Fraternity. I met with the Director of Student Life on Campus. I have to work with the Inter-Greek Association on campus, and gain acceptance to it by meeting a list of prerequisites in order to reactivate. Additionally, we have a website, and I'm starting an Alumni Association soon to let everyone know of our intentions. We actually have to start anew. Basically, we have loads of history, but it's not recent. We need numbers on campus to get started. Have any of you been in the same situation before? I have some ideas, any suggestions from you sister and brother Greeks out there! Thanks. Frank, Fall'69

Frank, you did not list the school, but if you have a strong National and is strong in your region that helps!
Also, there are a lot of young people as I did, who feel it would mean more to them to be part of something new!
At our 35 th # 2 was keynote speaker and one of the things he ephasized was he did not want to join one of the current houses. But when I came to him as a pool playing buddy, he found he could latched onto something that He could help BUILD not just a part of!
This may be a great selling point!
I know my house is having problems as we have a Grand Old Dame of a house but we need a new one!
This will be the hook or selling point, that the new guys will be a part of that!
I Guess the Hook is the key! Of course a major International is also a great selling point!

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the response and your good advice. Our school is Buffalo State College in Buffalo, NY. Our other two chapters are in the State University of NY System.
There are approximately 25 Greek organizations on campus. The idea of selling something "new" that's part of Buffalo State's "old" tradition seems viable. We did have a "house" but basically it was a rented. I know that if we had our own house, we would have still been active. We have a large commuter population, but many adequate dorms. Anymore ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help. Frank F. Alumnus, Buffalo State College F'69 PC

A fraternity is colonizing on our campus very shortly. They sent out letters to all the sororities complete with many response cards. These letters asked us to recommend any men who were not currently in fraternities who might want to be a part of something new.

I have absolutely no idea what kind of responses they got.

Hi Arya,

Hello fellow Bengal. Thanks for the best wishes. Coach Boyce's departure from Buff State is definitely sad. I'm not sure who is his replacement. I hope that Bengals Football will be as good as it was with him in charge. Regardless, I'm sure we'll continue to cheer for the orange and black. Take care.

Hi DeltaBetaBaby,


Thanks for the idea. We're in the very early stages of reactivation, with much work to do. Every idea from my fellow Greeks is greatly appreciated.
I like the idea of presenting the idea as "something new". Take care and pls let me know how many responses they received. Fraternally, Frank Filippetti, Alumnus, Psi Phi Beta Fraternity, Buffalo State, SUNY
