# of NPC sororities per campus

I have just completed some research on the number of N.P.C. groups on each campus and I think the results may surprise many of you. First, there is a total of 661 institutions that list N.P.C. sororities, which amazed me because that means that the largest N.P.C. group has chapters at only approximately one-fourth of all N.P.C. campi. Secondly, the overwhelming majority of institutions have five or less N.P.C. sororities. Thirdly, only 4% of women going through rush (at only 26 institutions) have the opportunity of being introduced to at least half of all N.P.C. groups.

At 76 institutions only one N.P.C. sorority is listed; 98 have 2; 129 have 3; 105 have 4; 74 have 5; 50 have 6; 20 have 7; 25 have 8; 17 have 9; 10 have 10; 16 have 11; 5 have 12; 5 have 13; 9 have 14; 2 have 15; 5 have 16; 2 have 17; 0 have 18; 1 has 19; & 2 have 20.

With an average of 8.47 N.P.C. groups per institution, Pi Beta Phi meets the largest number of N.P.C. sororities. They are followed closely by Kappa Alpha Theta, Delta Gamma, Kappa Kappa Gamma and Delta Delta Delta. The smallest number is Theta Phi Alpha with 3.49 and Alpha Sigma Tau with 4.07. Those two, plus Alpha Sigma Alpha, Delta Phi Epsilon and Phi Sigma Sigma, are at a number of single chapter institutions. I have the complete list if anyone is interested.

A few other observations stood out: Miami U. has more N.P.C. groups and Bowling Green has the same number as a much larger Ohio State. O.S.U., along with Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota & Wisconsin, have a huge number of inactive N.P.C. groups. The same is true on the west coast with Cal, U.C.L.A. & Oregon.

Anyway, the above N.P.C. sorority trivia gives us something to talk about during the summer hiatus when not much Greek life is occurring.

I'm always interested in stuff like this, but can you explain this further? ^^ I don't quite understand it.

There is an average of 8.47 N.P.C. sororities at institutions where Pi Phi has chapters; 8.39 where Theta has chapters; 8.34 for Delta Gamma & 8.27 where Tri Delt chapters exist; etc. There probably was better way to list it. Sorry.

Delta Phi Epsilon is the only NPC on our campus! Funny that you mention that :P

And, since you said Miami has the most NPC groups, that explains why it was such a shock when my chapter visited and the sorority houses never seemed to end.

I thought Penn State had the most.

That's what I thought as well, either that or Illinois.

That Miami stat is false.

I don't think he's saying Miami has the most chapters of any college in the country. I think he's trying to say that Miama has more chapters than say, Ohio State, which is a larger school (therefore people would assume it would have more chapters). He didn't word it very clearly.

I meant houses where a lot of the sisters live. I know there aren't sorority houses but that's the next best thing.
