Sororities vie for spot on campus

ByKelsey Shirriff March 06, 2013

The University of Minnesota is formally bringing a new sorority to campus for the first time in decades — but the chapter has to beat out other contenders first.

This weekend national chapters Phi Mu, Chi Omega and Delta Delta Delta will present to a committee reasons each should be the one chosen to come to the University.
Phi Mu & Chi Omega have finished their presentations -- tomorrow is Tri Delta.

Numbers are likely not the only factor. I'm sure they could have found 30 warm bodies if the number was all they cared about.

I believe Delta Delta Delta sold their house after closing (in 2004).

This weekend national chapters Phi Mu, Chi Omega and Delta Delta Delta will present to a committee reasons each should be the one chosen to come to the University.

Overflowing chapters, connecting to alumni and recent University support for participating in greek life contributed to the decision to add a new sorority, said Matt Levine, program director for the Office for Fraternity and Sorority life.

“It’s a huge deal,” he said. “It is the most exciting thing that they’ve been able to do on the sorority side in a long time. It’s going to bring a ton of energy to our community.”

Good luck to all those participating.
Interesting mistakes on the part of the newspaper--since according to Minnesota's Greek Life website, their AEPhi chapter was just founded in 2009! SO it hasn't been "decades" since they brought a new sorority to campus.

YAY! I sat at the same table as their recruitment adviser at Leadership Academy. She was adorable!

Tri Delta did sell their house. I heard the local Tri Delta alumnae have been storing some things from the chapter in their own homes (old composites, etc.) in the hope that one day Tri Delta will recolonize at the U.

WOW! What an exciting time for a Freshman attending Minnesota starting Fall of 2013. They are planning to add one sorority per year for someone's entire college career at Minnesota! That's quite interesting!

Question about extension in Minnesota: I read the Extension Report and it indicated only 2 houses are at total, and one chapter seems further away than the others from total. I thought expansion didn't happen unless all chapters were at or above total?

Nope. Sometimes we have to accept that the struggling chapter isn't going to recover.
