Chi Omega is not presenting at Lehigh. No source to cite, but they declined the invitation.

Fall 2014. Whoops! That'll fit in next year's thread.

This, I did not know! Campbell is very close to my house - in a very small, country town. We recently got our 3rd stoplight!

The Sigma Sigma Sigma recolonization is this fall, 2013, so it should go on this year's list. The FB link lists 2013, and they also have an active @TriSigmaGVSU Twitter feed, and colonization representatives have visited campus twice this year. I checked this out, because I knew they were coming back this year, and I hoped it hadn't been delayed. Welcome back to GVSU, Sigma Sigma Sigma!

Whoops! iPhone strikes again. Sorry for the confusion - Tri Sigma has three active recolonizations, with 2 in Fall 2013 (GVSU and Missouri State), and one in Spring 2014 (K-State). Thanks, sciencewoman!

It was in the Capaha Arrow (student newspaper) that Southeast Missouri State is in talks for expansion. There are five strong chapters and one that is quite a bit smaller but had an amazing sisterhood when I was there. Currently there are chapters of Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Delta Delta, Sigma Sigma Sigma, and Gamma Phi Beta. Zeta left campus (I don't know the circumstances) in 1993, and Gamma Phi colonized in 1994.

While it would be exciting for SEMO to open for expansion, that article makes me think it's a long way off. Whoever wrote it doesn't really seem to understand how quota works, and the girl quoted sounds like she didn't like her rush results and decided to just start an interest group to invite a NPC group on. (Because that's so easy to do, right?). While I'd love another chapter there, I'd be really surprised if the campus could support it. Another MO school expanded too quickly, and the result was the chapter closing.

And with that, I get my chapter back, plus two chances for my daughter to stay in-state and be a legacy. Hopefully an increased presence of ASA in NC will lead to more chapters here (UNCC would be nice).

Delta Tau Delta has been invited to colonize at the University of Louisville(KY). The colonization will take place in Spring '14. Good luck to the colony.

Interesting! Here are some numbers, in case anyone is curious:

2008 - Average chapter size was 79, median size 83, quota 25.
2012 - Average chapter size was 99, median size 107, quota 36.

So they have definitely had growth, and enough that they could add a chapter and still have a higher quota than in 2008, assuming the current status quo is maintained. (Their quota has been pretty static the last few years in the mid-30s.)

On the other hand, their chapters aren't crazy big, especially not for a system with 6 chapters. It will definitely be interesting to see what they decide (and when)!

Good fit for UofL - there are a lot of Delt Alumni in the Louisville area.

It will be a recolonization, but the date for that has changed to "TBA" per HQ website.
