Google Books link about the house. A couple other Greek houses are featured in this preview as well.

Mr. Wilkins has an impressive history with campus and Greek life at UGA. He was tapped for all the major honor societies on campus, Gridiron Secret Society, Sphinx (highest honor bestowed upon a UGA student), Founder of the Greek Horsemen (highest honor for fraternity men on campus), IFC, SGA, ODK, Phi Kappa. He was truly a BMOC during his era and went on to be just as successful in business and service in the Athens community.

I know several fraternities have been looking at this house on Milledge for years hoping to acquire it (including my own chapter a few years ago), but I had always heard that the owners wouldn't sell to a fraternity. So glad a sorority was able to obtain the property and looking forward to the complete restoration in the near future.

Weaver D, congratulations to your daughter on her Alpha Phi bid. Hope you'll stick around and update us from time to time on her experiences in a colony.

Thank you AZTheta. I will be happy to update the group and plan on sticking around. I wish I had known about this forum earlier. I hope to maybe even contribute to the group every now and then.

CONGRATS to her and to you for your support!

In spite of sites and news stories that show Greeks in a negative light and constantly sniping, now and then we all hold hands in our common bonds of being Greek. I'm saying this because of ALL these different organization members (me included) cheering you on and congratulating your daughter.

In this world of negative news, this site shows that good will still exists and can win out!

I'm noticing the house is on the national registry. I wonder if they'll have trouble doing updates.

Plans for an addition to the house were approved this summer - and from what I can tell from instagram - were on display when they were doing interviews for the new chapter.

The architectural renovations were approved by the city historic commission this summer as well as the zoning approval from the city. Architecture firm is local and worked on several historically related projects in town. I've seen the plans and going to be a pretty awesome house. 18K sq ft and house 54 + house director

LOL!

There is one chapter at my school that sprinkled the floor of their rush room with glitter during open house. (Yes, it was rush back then. Only one chapter had a house at the time, so almost all parties were held in the student center.) Naturally, the glitter would stick to the PNMs' shoes, and they'd track it out of the room. The chapter always cleaned up afterwards.

BUT ... Every year, one other chapter (their main competition during rush) accused them of a rush violation, specifically, giving gifts to the PNMs. Chapters couldn't allow PNMs to take anything out of the room, not even a napkin, as it could be considered a gift. So this other chapter claimed that the glitter chapter was giving the glitter to the PNMs as gifts!

When I was a PNM, I tracked glitter out of the room myself, and trust me, it wasn't a gift - it was the last thing I wanted!

So, every single year, Panhel had to hear the case, and every year, the charges were dismissed. I was my chapter's Panhel rep one year, so I was present for one of these hearings. What a waste of time.

Well why didn't Panhellenic rule that no chapter could sprinkle glitter on the floor?
