I am not aware of either GSS or OPA placing restrictions on their members joining (or being a member) of other organizations. While I wouldn't see a problem with something being in APO & GSS or APO & OPA, some might have an issue with being in GSS & OPA, but am unaware of any such rule. Those who are part of GSS & OPA should be able to add to this.

I am a member of OPA and we place no restrictions on members being a part of any other organization. I agree with APO, we are proud of members who are part of other groups. It helps diversify our group and gives us connections with other groups on campus.

Depleging yourself does not constitute imediate memory loss of the most sacred tenents of your ORG. Now if you dont mind that information becoming public knowledge and exploited by all means go right ahead.

SASS like that can only be made in MICHIGAN! I remember when the AKAs were suspended at my school for ten years...then some of the "interests" just "grew impatient" and "changed their minds."

But telling them what they can't wear? *sarcasm* now that would be hazing right soror?

I never understood the purpose of depledging. As if there is a reversal ceremony to forget what you gain from your organization. The strange thing about depledgers, they are still attached to their org. Janice, a depledger of
XYZ sorority.


Disclaimer: NPHC does not pledge. They have membership intake process. If there are any similarity between the two, it's all in your mind.

I know that this thread is pretty old, but I know that several founding members of GSS were also members of an NPC organization (I forget which one(s).

I experienced GSS an AXiD at different campuses, so I didn't encounter any conflicts of any sort. As an active alum of both, I just have to make sure I wear the right pin to my meeting!

There's actually a third service sorority....Epsilon Sigma Alpha, which have both collegiate chapters and non-collegiate chapters.

There is also Beta Sigma Phi which also has college and non-collegiate chapters. I am both Beta Sigma Phi and Kappa Alpha Theta.

Noob question, because I don't understand what you guys mean by NPC and NHPC or whatever.

I joined a fraternity (Theta Chi) at my current school, long story short I'm not sure if I'll be going back to the school for a number of reasons. If I transfer, is there anyway to just have my name taken out of the database/nationals so I can join a new fraternity at a new school?

As for your first question:

NPC = National Panhellenic Conference (26 member sororities/fraternities for women)

NPHC = National Pan-Hellenic Council (The Divine Nine - didn't find a seperate website for them)

As for your second question:

If once a pledge @ one fraternity, am I still able to join another after transfer?

Beyond that, I think that only Theta Chi HQ could tell you whether you can just quit. In my fraternity (non-NIC), you can be expelled, but you can't quit on your own.

ETA: The thread to which I linked seems to focus more on someone who pledged and then transferred without being initiated. So far as I know, no NIC fraterinity (or former NIC fraternity, like Kappa Sig) will knowingly pledge a man who has already been initiated into another fraternity unless the former fraternity has released him from membership. Even if he has been released, there are some fraternities that will not knowingly pledge him.

Echoing DSTChaos -- Is Theta Chi not a the school to which you may transfer?

I guess you don't love Theta Chi. Is there not a chapter of Theta Chi at the new school?

There's nothing really wrong with the particular one I joined, me leaving more has to do with financial/personal reasons. There is a chapter of Theta Chi at the new school, unfortunately I haven't heard very good things about it, although I'd probably check it out. So what exactly does that mean that Theta Chi isn't in the NPHC in terms of switching/canceling membership?

Nothing. You'd need to look at Theta Chi policy on releasing you from membership, NIC policy prohibiting dual memberships in member fraternities, and the policy of any other fraternity you might be interested in.

Nothing. You didn't know what NPC and NPHC are and we're telling you.
