Perhaps you can help me on this one...
Okay, since you are the Phi Sig encyclopedia, I thought that I would ask you a question. Any input would help out actually. Anyway, here goes...
So my chapter just got out of trouble with national and stuff (that's another story...we were framed!!!) We just got our social privledges back and now we are told that we CANNOT hang out with ANY local fraternities. Something to the point of...they're trouble, the campus doesn't want them as Greeks, so as a Phi Sig, you can't associate with them. Now here's the big part.....first of all, they are at another college 15 minutes away from us. They were national, but took it upon themselves to disband nationally and become local before they got kicked off campus. Secondly, myself and another sister are dating members of this local fraternity. I have been with my guy for 2 years, which was before our chapter got into trouble and they went local. Our advisor is saying that when 2 or 3 Phi Sigs are in the same room or place, it's considered a "social" event, even if it's really not. So, basically, my graduation party "violated" the Phi Sig rules b/c my sisters were there, my boyfriends brothers were there, and Phi Sigs from his school were also there.
I guess my question is, Is this a National Policy that we cannot associate with locals? If so, when and how did they get the ultimate decision to determine who I hang out with outside of Phi Sig events? To my understanding, as long as it's not a calendar event or announced at meeting and put into the minutes, National and our advisor can't say crap about what we choose to do.
If anyone knows anything about this, please post here, IM me (pssjadey), email me (Jadey28@yahoo.com), or PM me. I really need to do something about this before something I love so much is erased from my past (and I am not talking about my boyfriend)!
