Does anyone know if these groups have ever been here? AST does not list inactive chapters on its website, and Tri-Sigma's website is not working right now.

Our Kappa Deuteron Charge of Theta Delta Chi was closed down in 1998, if I'm not mistaken. So, adding your list, Theta Delta Chi once was in UI.

hehe...

DeltaBeta baby,

This is just off topic and random:

Your signature "Theres no place like HOME" (with the Phi and Mu of course) was our homecoming theme (well, minus the Phi and Mu!) and was just thinking about how cool it would have been if we had a Phi Mu chapter here! (actually the founders of my chapter wanted to be a chapter of Phi Mu, but then fell in love with Phi Sig when they made their presentation!)

hehe

just random!

Risk Management Issues. That is all I will say about it.

Around 30,000 undergrad, and about 22% Greek.

Biggest in the world!

Not to mention, we have a variety of locals and all of the divine nine.

Alpha Xi Delta's Kappa chapter was at the University of Illinois from 1905 until sometime in the late 1990s.

Go Illini!!!

I'm a Phi Sig at U of I and to answer one of your questions, our house mom (whose been here for 20 years!!!) had said that Tri Sigma's use to be on campus. I can't remember the reason why they left. I've also heard that Zeta Tau Alpha is looking to recolonize but greek affairs won't let them back in right now because we are not ready to expand with more sororities.

And I wanted to say great job with recruitment!!!

WoW That is a huge greek system going on! UNT currently has 6 NPC sororities and 10 or 11 IFC Fraternities. I have heard that even though the campus has about 30,000 students, only about 7% are Greek, but I'm not sure on those exact figures. I read in the paper the other day 2 IFC fraternities are hoping to colonize here as well.

ZTA used to inhabit the Theta Chi house but left a few years back because of numbers. I believe their nationals still has the power to purchase back their house if they ever decide to recolonize, which is cool because it's a gorgeous, huge house!

AZD was definitely on campus- their house is a few blocks away from mine. It's set pretty far back from campus so I imagine they had a problem with reaching quota because of their location- on a campus as big as ours, girls balk when houses are far away. The house is very pretty and looks to be in stellar condition- I'd love to see AZD take it back!

I think we also used to have Fiji, back in the day. One of my sister's father was a Fiji U of I alum but he told her they got kicked off for risk management reasons. We definitely used to have Theta Delta Chi- I believe they adopted part of a street (I think Armory). If you look through old editions of the Illio (yearbook) we used to have a ton of other sororities that I believe were local. And then we have a huge amount of professional interest groups too

Question Hey, someone forgot 9 fraternities and sororities!

Why weren't the NPHC groups mentioned? Someone mentioned them later, but not in the initial post.

Is it fair to say that it's the largest "in the world"? Are there really any college Panhellenics outside of the United States and Canada? It's not as if you're competing against Panhellenics in Zimbabwe. But, I guess it is pretty cool to say you're the "largest in the world".
