Just looking at the KBG website and I'm curious, why is Alpha Lambda a new chapter and not a recolonization of Omicron chapter, since it's the same school?

I don't know the exact reason why, but the Omicron chapter was closed because of hazing, and so some of amount of members, I believe the newest ones, were given the option to re-colonize as a new chapter, hence Alpha Lambda.

Kappa Beta Gamma seems to be going to universities in Canada where no NPCs are interested in expanding to yet there is interest in creating Greek life. A lot of our universities have local sororities that were founded in the last ~30 years and (in my opinion) would be delighted to affiliate with an NPC or another international. This was the case at the University of Ottawa where KBG colonized with former members of a local sorority, Zeta Theta Xi. I believe this also happened with the chapter at the University of Lethbridge.

This whole emerging chapter thing is cracking me up. It's like a baby bird pecking out of an egg.

I keep picturing a show on the Discovery Channel or something.

So are colony members referred to as caterpillars?

That's better than calling them "larvae".

University of Arkansas would like to add 3 more sororities, according to this article which focuses on potential housing. Currently, Alpha Gamma Delta is scheduled to colonize in Fall '18.
