Delta Gamma

Omega Phi Alpha

Active: 14/24
Alpha--Bowling Green State University
Gamma--Eastern Michigan University
Delta--Texas A&M University
Epsilon--Tennessee Tech University
Mu--Middle Tennessee State University
Nu--Georgia Institute of Technology
Omicron--Auburn University
Rho--Western Kentucky University
Sigma--University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
Tau--University of Texas
Upsilon--University of Louisiana—Lafayette
Phi--Arizona State University
Chi--University of South Carolina
Psi--Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi

Beta--University of Bridgeport

Eta--Amarillo College
Theta--West Virginia Institute of Technology
Iota--Western Michigan University
Kappa--Capital University
Lambda--University of Connecticut
Xi--University of North Alabama
Pi--Teikyo Post University
Omega--Rutgers University

All of those from Zeta to Kappa were established between 1974-1978...we apparently had some really lax expansion policies back then, and none of these chapters lasted very long at all. Omega was founded in 2000, and had closed already by the time I joined in Spring 2004.
