The "policy violations" were helped along by the questionable testimony of residence hall staff. I'm told it was a similar story for AGD, and most likely for KZ as well. The campus does not want Greek life there and is doing everything possible to squelch it, so I wouldn't confirm this campus as "open for expansion" until an NPC area coordinator officially says it is. I would also advise any sororities interested to run like the wind. I was part of the initiation team for this chapter, and the hoops that a large and strong group of committed women were made to jump through to bring a sorority to campus were ridiculous - even in the Greek friendly 1980s.

The AOII chapter was something to do with ownership of the house (alumnae housing corp vs national HQ).

Another one of those New York colleges with an extreme hazing culture. Let us not forget this confessional about the author's time in SDT there: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/health-f...rdly-worth-it/ I wonder if their culture changed after nationals investigated?

If I can believe another site, Chi Omega re-grouped after more than a few members were let go, too.

This weekend, Kappa Sigma reinstalled its Xi-Nu Chapter at the University of Western Ontario, and installed its Upsilon-Iota Chapter at Florida Atlantic University.

It does not. It's been a few years now since our chapter there was resolved. It happened about the same time as ASA. There was only one left at that point from what I recall.

Six University of Nevada-Reno fraternities have lost university recognition for this semester because they did not sign a relationship agreement with the university instituting new policies. The six groups are Alpha Tau Omega, Kappa Alpha Order, Kappa Sigma, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Theta Chi and Zeta Psi.

If confirmed, it would be interesting to see if one NPC group would get both University of Colorado and Colorado State. It may be an efficient use of resources? It would be nice for DZ or SDT if they were interested, since they were at both campuses in the past.

CU definitely has a bunch of groups that could come back.

Of all these schools that have at least been rumored to be open for expansion, when will some more decisions start flowing? It's been very slow for the number "open".

I made a spreadsheet to track them. (It's biased towards KD, but gets the point across)
