Good catch! I don't know what I was thinking, but for some reason, I thought 1990 was 10 years ago :/

Look at those colonization dates! That is amazing. What a tradition and history.

It would be great to see more NPC groups come back to Berkeley.

And something else I never knew (for those of you familiar with Berkeley's campus):

The College Women's Club, a group of Pan-Hellenic women, constructed the Bancroft Hotel building in 1928 as a private clubhouse. Inspired by California's Mediterranean climate and vast landscape, noted Bay Area architect Walter T. Steilberg, an associate of Julia Morgan, created a distinguished example of the area's internationally known Arts and Crafts movement. After hosting the Phi MU Sorority (1960-1990) the building was closed for refurbishing and retrofitting. Four years later the Bancroft Hotel was opened. The Hotel is a National Register Landmark.

Wow, an office for one of my startups is located in the Bancroft Hotel. Quite surprising that the building formerly housed Phi Mu! I always wondered where it was.

One of my friends was a Phi Mu at Berkeley -- I'll have to send her this link. Thanks for posting it!

And those single letter chapters! DPhiE is the only inactive (current NPC) double letter, and all the active chapters are singles. Not sure about the order for Pi Phi since they do it by state, but given the date it's likely in or near the single letter category.

Looking at that list of closed chapters, it's interesting to me to note that 3 of the closed sororities were merged with Delta Zeta prior to the DZ chapter closing (Beta Phi Alpha in 1941, Phi Omega Pi in 1946, and Theta Upsilon in 1962). I'd love to see DZ return to Berkeley b/c it's on my daughter's top 3 list of where she'd like to go...

My daughter has added Berkeley to her "look into" list for schools (before this news). So far, UMich is the only school with an Alpha Gam chapter that she is considering.

Do you know when Alpha Gamma Delta closed at Berkeley? It would be awesome to see 2 single letter chapters recolonized (Alpha along with this one) in such a short period of time! Good luck to Alpha Gamma Delta and all those selected to present!

I'm not positive but I've seen some things to indicate that it was around 1986. I was a collegian then and not very in tune to what was happening with the overall Fraternity.

One of the members in my alum club is listed as Omicron (U C Berkeley) 1993. So it was at least after that.

I think it was around 2000-2002? It had to have been around my days as a collegian because my chapter advisor was devastated when she found out her chapter was closing.
