That's horrible! I have many PM friends and this makes me sad. How dare members have an opinion. /sarc I'm also sad for these Kappas... yes, IMO they are still members. The nationals are bullying members.

Called it

Didn’t I?

I ask my Panhellenic sisters to join me in expressing my disgust at any NPC organization that uses the threat of termination to silence its members. Or, in the case of two organizations named in this thread, has apparently already done so.

What have we come to? I am certain that my revered founder would be in the forefront of those protesting. I know what she stood for and why she founded Kappa Alpha Theta. Study our history and reconcile it with current events.

October 14, 2023, there was a Washington Post “Deep Read” about Artemis Langford. What makes for better reading, IMO, are the letters to the editor that followed its publication. Will copy and paste and edit my post in just a few minutes.

On my tablet, difficulty copying and pasting, will try this afternoon since I have ~ 24 hours to edit my post. Apologies.

I still want to know how he got a bid with below a 2.0.

Well, never mind.

I would like to know that as well. How was Langford even allowed to participate in recruitment with that GPA?

School Panhels can’t prevent anyone from participating because of grades because it is the individual sororities that determine what GPA they require. Fiona Failedeveryclass might have a 1.3, but she might also be a 5 generation legacy to XYZ with more money than God and they are willing to take her on as a “grade risk.” Flies in the face of our groups’ “commitment to scholarship” but that’s XYZ’s prerogative.

One of those 450 brave Kappas is a friend who grew up down the street from my parents home. To say I am proud of her is an understatement!

Rules were broken or disregarded to force this person's way into the sorority. From what I understand, he was not eligible for membership at the time he received a bid or at the time of initiation. His membership should be voided based on that criteria alone.
