And can sororities still pair with non-recognized groups for campus events?
Maybe I’m reading too much into these situations—and I know campus guidelines are often a pain in the ass—but is cutting yourself loose a valid idea?
I think that as long as the chapter follows the risk-mgt. guidelines of their organization, they are still covered by the insurance their organization has.

It was announced today that Sigma Chi has closed the chapter at Iowa State University. The chapter was under a revitalization plan that the members failed to adhere to.

I think it also depends what the housing situation on the campus is. If the worst thing that happens is losing your suite that 10 members lived in, it’s going to be way easier to flip the school the bird than if you were giving up a 60 person gorgeous mansion.

That's a shame, they just built a new house two years ago.

The University of Arizona chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon has been closed due to "health and safety" reasons.

The East Carolina University(NC) of Alpha Phi has been suspended while under investigation.

The University of Colorado-Denver has also opened for its first NPC organization.

Did the planned ZTA colony at the University of Saint Francis in Illinois never materialize? I know there were colonization efforts, but they aren't listed on the ZTA website and the colony recruitment website links to social media that doesn't exist.

Also open for expansion is the New York Institute of Technology-Old Westbury; not to be confused with the State University of New York-Old Westbury which is also open for expansion.

XiDelt, do you have any additional information on the opportunities at the University of Wyoming? I looked up the Panhellenic and the campus has two local groups. Do you know if either of these groups is petitioning to affiliate with a national or if the expansion for a totally new group? Has the University offered housing options for a new group? The "fraternity mall" area seems like a wonderful opportunity for a group to be able to join - but is this being offered? Thanks for whatever information you have.

I’m not sure where you’re seeing two locals on their FSL website-Phi Sigma Rho is a STEM major-focused sorority and Sigma Alpha is an agriculture-focused sorority. Both are national organizations distinct from Panhellenic groups.

No, I'm sorry I don't have any additional information. I just read the tweet from Sorority Extension.

Is it okay if I answer? :-)

There are currently 3 empty houses and 3 plots available for housing. The University is committed to renovating the empty houses and will work with a new group (or groups) to either take over one of the renovations or in new building.

The Panhellenic council is also switching recruitment from a series of weeknight activities to one weekend. With this switch, the University and Panhellenic is expecting an increase in numbers.

It appears that Alpha Epsilon Phi at Minnesota is no longer on the University Panhellenic website, does anyone know if that chapter was closed? They were struggling with recruitment last fall.

Thank you each for your answers on my University of Wyoming questions. It is good to know that the University wishes to rebuild more options for a Greek experience on that campus. The fraternity mall area is an amazing layout, I hope it is appreciated.
