Sororities that dropped out of NPC?

Just a little history question: does anyone know which sororities were members of NPC but no longer are today due to the nationals folding or some other reason?

There is an old thread that talks about old chapters which were absorbed into the NPC sorority Delta Zeta. The only sorority that I know of that was in the NPC and is no longer, is Iota Phi Theta (correction made later that day: I meant "Iota Alpha Pi"...sorry about my mistake), and I think it was absorbed into another NPC, though I cannot say for sure.

Alpha Delta Theta became part of Phi Mu in the mid-20th century.

Here's the thread you all might be looking for:

NPC's that didn't make it

There's a list of some former NPC sororities as well as who they merged with or when they went defunct

So I take it there was an Iota Phi Theta sorority before Iota Phi Theta fraternity was founded?

I think she's actually referring to Iota Alpha Pi, just misspoke.

Yes, Iota Alpha Pi is the one that I intended. My apologies for getting the name and letters mixed up.

Didn't Iota Alpha Pi decide to disband in the 70's? I can remember seeing their pin, and since it's so like the ADPi pin, wondered why they didn't think of asking for a merger.

There was an IAPi chapter at U of T (that's Toronto, people) and according to this page, it was disbanded as an IHQ.

I always thought that another GLO "ate it up"...maybe if someone has an ancient Baird's floating around, we can find out for certain.

No, they never had enough chapters, and when they did get close, the required # jumped up. I think I read somewhere that NPC was going to make a grandfather-type exception and let them in anyway, but they decided that's not what they wanted to do.

It would be very disadvantageous to enter the NPC with less than (or even equal to) the min. amount of chapters. It's hard enough now for the bottom few groups to be competitve.

Honeychile, back in the "day" (the 70's), Iota Alpha Pi was considered a Jewish sorority. That is the most likely reason it did not consider a merger with ADPi or any other sorority. They had a few chapters in common with SDT, AEPhi, DPhiE and Phi Sigma Sigma, which were also considered historically Jewish sororities at that time. I don't know why they did not consider approaching any of us about merging. Is there an IAPi alum out there who can give us a clue?

I didn't think it was my place to say that. I can remember seeing one of their pins on ebay - it was diamond shaped with a "shadow" diamond in azure blue <<>. Seemed to be a lead pipe cinch - until I discovered the "why"!

Paula,

My only guess would be that the majority of their chapters were at a school that had at least one if not more of the above mentioned GLO's and instead of having a ton of new chapters it would have been a lot of the merging of the chapters which would have been harder?
