Article "Sorority information revealed"

Description

This is the Collegian's announcement of the decision to let six sororities "colonize" on campus that spring. These sororities are Kappa Kappa Gamma, Delta Delta Delta, Pi Beta Phi, Delta Gamma, Chi Omega, and Kappa Alpha Theta. Assistant director of student activities, Alison Bartel, explains how the implementation of sororities will progress and rush organization. In regards to bringing a black sorority to campus, the article notes that this was a consideration, but that "Harwood said the committee is hoping that exclusivity will not be a problem...The committee was concerned that an all-black sorority would promote segregation when the plan was to enable all students to work together...And when they looked at the number of minority students on campus, they realized they would need all of them to join the sorority for it to be successful." The possibility of "colonizing" a black sorority would be considered in the future.
