KD is closing their chapter at John Carroll University at the end of this spring semester. Closure appears to be due membership declines.

And this occurred:

https://carrollnews.org/232400/campu...ity-on-campus/

FYI: In the early 2000's, all the JCU locals were required to affiliate with national organizations. I was involved with the JCU "local" affiliating with my organization. Our chapter closed a few years later due to RM issues. As I recall, there were 5 fraternities on campus, now they are down to one.

I've said before and will say it again, I don't think local to national conversions work in the long run if the groups are forced into it.

Funny enough Iona University was thinking of nationalizing all the orgs (there is 1 NPC sorority and 2 IFC fraternities on campus, with 4 local sororities and 1 local fraternity.) but the alumni and members of the locals put up such a fight that it didn't happen. I've also seen some schools that'll have separate councils for the locals and national organizations like Montclair State has.

Sacred Heart University is one case where all the locals went national and it ended up going extremely well for the school, with the overall greek membership going up to a point that they've had multiple expansions for both in the last couple of year.

It worked well at Shorter with one group, and the other one finally gave in years later--I guess their membership had really shrunk because the kids saw the advantages of a national organization.

It hasn't worked so well at other colleges. We dumped our group at one because the old group continued to haze badly. Everyone had been so excited to get them because they were the oldest local. Another sorority almost dumped their chapter but I think they hung in there.

This is what happened to our JCU chapter, they refused to give up "traditions" (AKA Hazing) they did as a local chapter.

UC Santa Barbara is currently open to fraternity and sorority establishment proposals with the exception of National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) organizations.

I read the asterisked statement in the original post from UCSB which was at the bottom of the detailed post about expansion. It says that NPC expansion is pursuant to NPC regulations, not what the Greek Life office is requiring. I am interpreting this to indicate that the campus IS open for another NPC chapter. Paging TLLK for her knowledge about the campus. Thanks(Go Gauchos!).

Personally Id like to see Chi Omega and Tri Delta return. I have great memories of Chi O as their facility was right next door to ours on El Colegio. So many fun things happened during recruitment. I think Tri Delta may have used that same facility; they were after my time on campus.
