Help With recolonizing Eta Mu!!

I'm going back to school this fall after a long break. Coincidentally our chapter closed the semester I left; Spring of 2005. My plan is to get a local sorority, Chi Delta to convert to ADPi. Chi Delta had another chapter at Sonoma State that recently went national with ADPi, so I was thinking it would be a natural fit. I want to write a letter the president explaining all the great things about ADPi. Once I get them aboard, I'll try to convince EO to give Eta Mu another shot. Anyone have any ideas?? Especially with how to raise money for ritual supplies, and formal recruitment.

First, before ADPi can even attempt to recolonize, the school has to be open to colonization. Second, you have to look at the culture of the campus. How is greek life on the campus? Is it very strong or weak? How are the other sorority chapters?

The reality is, as much as it sucks when a chapter closes, EO does have their reasons behind it. Not every chapter that closes comes with the "contingency" that it will be recolonized. In 2005, we lost 4 chapters. Out of those 4 only one, Delta Gamma, was recolonized, but it was always the plan for the chapter to come back (we just came back a year early).

I wasn't there, so I don't know the reasons behind the closing of the chapter, but surely it had to do with numbers (amongst probably other reasons that probably only EO knows about).

I don't say this to deter you, in fact I applaud you. I would feel the same way if DG hadn't been planned to reopen. I would suggest talking to EO and asking about the feasibility of the Eta Mu chapter coming back, and if there is some feasibility your interest in starting a local to eventually convert with ADPi (if that is a possibility, I'm not familiar with the whole process).

Good luck!!!!

Sorry to crash, but I just wanted to say it's not necessarily that easy to sell Chi Delta on the idea (even if Panhel, EO, etc. is open to it). Just from what I know about Sac State and after looking at XD's website, it looks like they're pretty proud of being local. Good luck with everything!
