But then I donít know how these things work; I guess the Greek world is in uncharted territory on this one...
I read that Kappa gave up their charter rather than disband and then turned themselves in to a social club that allows all genders - they are now called Fleur de Lis (one of their symbols) but are no longer an official chapter.

I don't know the specifics of DG and Theta but it sounds like they closed the chapter and the members aren't organizing any other group. I could be wrong, though.

What a terrible loss and a shame.
Princeton already doesnít recognize Greeks and every time they have publicized it, pledge class numbers increased.

Harvard is making it very clear that they donít want a certain kind of student, and I hope they are okay with the alumni who were that certain kind of student cutting off their donations.

The Theta chapter is becoming Theta Zeta Xi, according to the letter by Theta's president.

LaneSig, my PM box is full, otherwise I'd have sent this to you. Here's a link to the Kappa Sigma/Arizona chapter news.

Will delete this post as soon as you make your official announcement here

The Phi Sigma Sigma chapter at Barry University (FL) is now closed. The chapter is not listed on the BU FSL web page nor on the Phi Sig. web site chapter listing.

The Arizona Kappa Sigma news is so sad to me. It appears that this chapter has the most amazing alumni involvement and support (from FB and webpage). It also appears that they had another hiatus recently, being re-established in 2012. And I wonder from the pictures if their alumni didn't bring them back on campus to a new house with values set forth in the tiles on the walls of the new building. I don't know what happened but college men do come to school for an education, to network for their future careers - right?

Actually, the Kappa Sigma house at Arizona, while fairly new, was not new when they returned in 2012 but built around 2000. Sigma Chi was housed there when Kappa Sigma was off campus.

The Gamma Zeta chapter of Sigma Kappa at Northern Illinois University received a three-year suspension of student organization recognition (due to student code of conduct/policy violations) from the university, and has been made a dormant SK chapter by its HQ, as of an official SK news release on June 12, 2018. They are eligible for university re-recognition in April 2021.

I don't know if this was ever updated but Theta Phi Alpha and Tri Sigma presented at LU- Belleville this week.

No decisions have been made yet. This will be a new NPC system as I do not think they have any NPCs yet.
