Because they are renting their house and their lease is up in 2025. No guarantee that it will be renewed.

When I saw this post I thought to myself didnít Alpha Delta Pi just colonize there recently and sure enough, it was in 2009. Not very recent but still not an old chapter.

Tri Sigma closed their chapter at Edinboro - now PennWest Edinboro. The chapter submitted a petition to close due to low membership.

But, IFC numbers are usually (usually) lower than NPC; so, there really isn't a correlation between the decrease in groups for IFC and an addition for NPC. Plus, there are still four existing IFC orgs at Kenyon.

Kenyon no longer allows local groups to form; so, if 60% of the pnms dropped out or did not get a bid and are still interested in being in Greek Life, this is their only option.

What in the world?! If they have a 60% drop rate, the solution to their problems isn't to add a new sorority.

I only saw this in a local system with one NPC chapter where typical NPC rules didn't apply (RFM, quota, etc.) The sororities could decide their pledge class numbers and many people were cut from recruitment before bid day, even if they had gone to a specific chapter for pref.
