Sigma Chi has closed the chapter at the University of Kansas. Closure is due to hazing and RMF.

Wow! As I understand this was a very popular chapter.

The house is spectacular, but... WOW! Will they be able to return in four years?

They said the chapter could potentially come back in 2 years minimum.

Now we wait and see if the members try to pull off "Underground Theta" until they come back, including illegal recruitment.

And it’s sad…founded in 1929. This was Laura Bush’s Theta chapter. On the Theta website it lists the chapter as: “disestablished”….an interesting word choice, perhaps less harsh than CLOSED.

Seems like the prestige chapters get in more trouble.

I rushed and graduated from SMU in the 90s and I am forever happy that my three girls decided not to attend my alma mater for undergrad. Rush was horrendous on my nerves back then and it’s become even more cutthroat in this age of social media and popularity. I have no idea how Panhellenic is going to adjust to having one less house when SMU has been in need of more houses for years and the environment at SMU is so toxic for the girls, I sincerely hope things will end up going smoothly this fall.

FYI: as long as I've been a member, Kappa Alpha Theta uses "disestablished" for chapters that are no longer open, regardless of reason(s). IDK if any other NPC organization uses this particular descriptor, and I'm disinclined to look as it's not interesting to me. Given the circumstances, "disestablished" is a preferable word choice to "closed", when you compare the definitions of both words. Semantics aside, the end result is that the chapter has ceased operations.

Honestly, I'm somewhat disturbed and even a little sad about Tri Sigma closing at Old Dominion (anyone can connect the dots if you're reading reddit, which has much more Greek Life activity than GC does).

I think every greek org calls it something different. in AOII it's "the charter is held in trust" or something like that.
