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.
