Actually, National is revoking our charter, not the University. They can request to recolonize in the future, but the University would have to accept (another sorority did that a few years ago - they are now very exclusive, but not at all the type of sorority that my sisters and I would want to be members of).Jess: I just am sad for your chapter. It seems like since you're not serving some greater purpose, the university has seen fit to disband you. I think many many many grads who are sorority members need to remind the university of how much tuition money the U received. I think that's just shitty.
My exbf went to MIT, and he joined a fraternity b/c it was cheaper than the dorms, but the relationships he developed have lasted to this day (he graduated from MIT in 1980). and that fraternity helpd create loyalty that has led to donations to the school's endowment fund.
So long as the sorority isn't asking for any money from the university, the university shouldn't have any way in a greek house's status, so long as major rules haven't been broken.
I'm on your side. Wish I could help!!
p.s. love your photo. Please continue to take them and make sure your boys have copies. they will love it later in life.1993199
The biggest problem is that the girls who are currently undergrads will become alums at the end of the semester and receive no support from National or recognition from the University. The alumni are going to have to step up to provide more support, or at least be more available than in the past, until they graduate.
Thanks for the compliment on the pic :) I have to make more of an effort to get out from behind the camera. I'll try to take pictures at the Polar Bear Plunge next weekend. I'm meeting at least one of my sisters there ;)
