I also had the following:

Alaska - Anchorage - opened in 2017 per NPC bulletin
Sonoma State - the last opening I have was 2011 where AOII was chosen
Johnson & Wales Miami - opened in 2017 - can't remember where I saw this
Purdue - opened 2017, I remember some discussion about ADPi
Pittsburg State (KS) - opened 2017
LSU - Alexandria - Theta Phi Alpha was chosen 2010/2011 and decided not to colonize
St. John's - Staten Island - opened 2017 per NPC bulletin
Kenyon (OH) - AOII & Phi Sig presented in 2015, no decision
Ohio Northern - opened 2018
Carlow - local Delta Gamma Beta looking to affiliate
PA College of Technology - opened 2018
Bethel (TN) - opened in 2016
Our Lady of the Lake University (TX) - opened in 2016
Wisconsin - Stevens Point - ASA presented in 2015

Canada:
University of Ottawa - opened in 2016
Wilfrid Laurier (Ontario) - opened in 2015

I assume many of these schools decided not to pursue extension

I had heard from one of the chapter advisors at Temple that there were 3 presenters, 2 besides TriDelt but not who

UW-Platteville is not open for expansion. Theta Phi Alpha recolonized there back in 2014.

Purdue never announced presentations as far as I know. The ADPi discussion was my wishful thinking because I think we're the last chapter there that has closed and not been reopened. The numbers aren't reaaaaaally there for Purdue so I wouldn't be surprised if they ultimately decided against expansion.

Per our chapter at Kenyon, the local opted not to affiliate. I found this out a few years back at convention when the Kenyon delegates were seated with me at our banquet.

Do you have an idea why it's been open for so long without any NPCs taking it on?

Does anyone have any insight into the future of Kenyon sororities? We have a chapter there - the only non-local sorority. Is there pressure on the locals to follow suit?

It’s really tiny, really in the middle of nowhere (snowy nowhere at that) and as much as they are attempting to make it residential, I would wager the majority of the students are still commuter. (And not a 10-15 minute commute either.). It’s just not conducive to the kind of involvement and oversight required for NPC groups nowadays.

ETA: we had a colony at Penn Tech and Tri Sigma had either a colony or chapter there. The interest just wasn’t present. I hope that other groups have learned from our experience.

I think with these smaller schools opening, they want to have their cake and eat it too. They want a national group so that some of the onus is on them insurance wise, but they don’t want to make a big push to really promote the Greek system and/or recruit the types of students for whom campus involvement will be a big part of why they choose a school. The fact of the matter is that for some campuses, local Greeks are the only Greeks that will work.

I think there are at least 5 Purdue ADPis in my alumnae association who would KILL to see a recolonization there!

[QUOTE=ChioLu;2459762]Anyone know whatís happening at schools who have announced NPC expansion?
* Abraham Baldwin Ag. College (GA) - Open, new NPC system. (Enrollment 3700, located in Tifton/south central GA)
* Middle Georgia State College (now, Middle Georgia State University) - Open for new Greek system (nearly 8000 undergrads, located in Macon)

Somebody choose these two! Great campuses!

ABAC has 3 national fraternities (Kappa Sig, AGRho, and a Latino group) and Sigma Alpha national ag sorority.

With quota being very manageable as it has for the past couple of years, I would think Purdue will hold off on another expansion for a bit. They added two chapters in the recent past and while both chapters are doing well, the numbers don't seem to support an additional chapter.

The Middle Georgia State Univ. main campus is actually in Cochran, GA - about 40 minutes away from Macon. Plus, there are already 2 national groups there: KDX (Latina) and APhiA. Geographically, it could be a good opportunity for any of the sororities at Mercer University (in Macon) to colonize and have a mentor close — ADPi, AGD, XO, PM — with 2 of those having their international HQ in GA!

For ABAC, there could be a similar mentoring situation for the sororities at nearby Valdosta State Univ. (45 min. south on I-75), with 5 groups close by: ADPi, ASA, XO, KD, PM, ZTA.

I feel like the Georgia Board of Regents has been going after a lot of schools for consolidation. I'm wondering if no one has bitten because they think those schools will also eventually be consolidated, which could make the expansion effort complicated (like SPSU/Kennesaw was), or useless.
