There have been more than a few smaller, 4-year schools opening for NPC expansion over the past decade where it's ended up that NO NPC groups have 'taken the bait' to expand. What could possibly make community colleges a more attractive, desirable option for expansion by an NPC group over one of those NPC-rejected schools?

Possibly sheer numbers. If a community college has 30,000 students and the 4-year school has 1,500, the CC *might* be better able to keep a chapter.

*However*, the experience of Alpha Phi Omega (Scouting Fraternity at that point) in the late 1960s and early 1970s might be useful. Prior to the 1960s, Alpha Phi Omega had a few chapters at 2-year schools, but they mostly weren't what we would call traditional Community Colleges. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, there was an effort to consider Community Colleges as well and about 30 chapters were created that that type of school. Today, none of those chapters are active. I believe that right now there are two active Co. One is a close in feed CC to University of Illinois where the chapter at U of Illinois can help support and the other is at Georgia Military College which isn't a normal CC.

I can also think of a couple other reasons. The CC might be in an area with a ton of alumni interested in volunteering, whereas I know some of the 4-year schools that didn't get any interest were in the middle of goddamn nowhere and probably didn't have any kind of alumni base nearby for any organization.

Also, some 4-year schools have either former national orgs gone local, always-local orgs, or other student orgs filling a similar niche that have serious RFM and/or hazing concerns. If a school already has a strong hazing culture, it makes perfect sense that no NPC group would want to swim against the current trying to create a chapter where hazing isn't tolerated when every other social group on campus does it. A community college that's essentially a blank slate in terms of student org campus culture would be a much easier and safer choice.

We have a couple universities (Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Wayne State) that I can think of off the top of my head where students take some of their classes at the main university but some of the basics at a community college. So they are half time at each. It has caused membership questions since they aren't full time. It saves them a TON of money though. In situations like that, it could make sense. There's also a community college in Texas where the students are automatically transferred to the 4 year University, isn't there? It's a niche case, but it exists.

You are probably thinking of Blinn College and Texas A&M in Bryan, TX

Does anyone know any NPC update RE: Expanding to CC?

I believe NPC usually meets in late October. I think that ASA is just preparing for a change, just in case the rules change.
