Two New Sororities Coming to Columbia…Eventually

Written by

Late last night, we a tip of the anonymous sort that PanHell (Columbia’s PanHellenic Council, the umbrella group for the AXO, DG, SDT, and Theta sororities) will be choosing between four sororities that want to establish chapters at Columbia: Kappa Kappa Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Zeta Tau Alpha. Two of these four, said the tipster, will be eventually allowed to establish a colony and a chapter.

Because nothing incentivizes TV in bed/never moving over doing our own shoe-leather reporting like the summertime, we turned to the Spec for the full report. Turns out PanHell has wanted to bring more sororities to campus for a while, since so many female students choose to go Greek. One sorority chapter will be established this fall in time for January recruitment, and a second chapter will be established in spring of 2015, according to Spec.

Check Bwog for more updates (and a bevy of tags that incorporate “sisterhood” puns) as we learn more over the next few weeks.

    Guarantee the first one will be Gamma Phi Beta. The Director of Greek Life and her assistant were both GPBs in college.

    ... Greek orgs dont belong at Columbia. They add nothing to the larger community, since they only mix with themselves, and they brim much bad.

    1. Op ivy league
    2. Even though Barnard rules state that all organizations mug be open to all, they are funded for some reason
    3. Stupidity
    4. More networking finance folks

      so sorry you didn't get any bids! don't worry—its probably not you. just none of the sororities thought you were a good fit for them!

        What's annoying is that so many people in "Greek life" blame people hating them on those people "not getting bids" when in actuality most people have zero desire to be involved in Greek life, and hate them because they are vapid and for the most part, wholly unecessary organizations that detract from the school.

    I hate to be *that* commenter, but... it just makes me very pessimistic about humanity, or at least the kind of subset of humanity that represents our school, to know that we'd entertain the possibility of introducing a chapter of the sorority that was behind this omewhat recent scandal:

    then again, we already decided to accept SAE, which was behind the OTHER big recent news story:

    Sure, a Columbia chapter is different from others (maybe), but why be a chapter of that sorority, then? and how can we know if we don't have a chapter?

  15. Speaking of sororities

    Has anyone ever complained about the cultural appropriation on the tank tops that AXO made recently? I think they were supposed to look "80s retro" or something but they also maybe had dream catchers printed on them? I was surprised no one made an issue of it.

    It's "Panhellenic" not "PanHellenic".

    This mistake is made on every single Greek life post.

    Just out of curiosity, is it actually difficult to get into a sorority? or do most people who rush have options.
