I'm not going to share the name of the sorority here. I'm upset with this decision, but I still have to maintain some loyalty to my sisters :)

Their official reasons are:
General chapter management
The inability to recruit and meet campus total
Accountability
Interpersonal communications
Those seem rather vague. You'd think they'd have given actual specific reasons before now, so you'dh ave a chance to meet requirements.

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

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).

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 ;)

Thanks for posting. I got distracted with "stuff". I was watching the sky for meteorites and drones. Can't be too careful.

Today's downtown event is India Fest. I can't say I don't like Indian food because I've barely tried it, but I can't stand the strong smell of curry. However, I may go check it out since it's literally in my backyard.

Yw! I normally ignore topix and the wapo forums on the weekend, but I'm a tad bit hungover (mostly from not eating much at all yesterday + cocktails) and just sitting here and thought I'd do something useful.:)

60 year old man got mad at a toddler who started to cry when their plane was descending for landing (the cabin pressure changes often make kids cry in that moment), and he SLAPPED the 2yo across the face!!!

I'd put the asshole on the "doesn't get to fly again ever" list.

According to the affidavit, the boy's mother, Jessica Bennett, 33, said that her son started to cry because of the change in cabin pressure and that she tried to get him to stop, but he kept crying.

At that time, Hundley allegedly "told her to shut that ['N word'] baby up." Then he allegedly turned around and slapped the boy in the face with an open hand, which caused the toddler to scream louder.

Georgia attorney Marcia Shein, who is representing Hundley, said that he is pleading not guilty to the charges.

"Hopefully, this situation can be resolved," she said Friday afternoon. "Both people are probably very nice. No one should rush to judgment."

Yes. He sounds like a very nice person.

It's called nan and it is delicious. Can only be made in a tandoor.

jmw, you should go. Find some sparkly earrings or necklace. If nothing else, the people watching should be good.
