Two New Sororities Coming to Columbia…Eventually

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.

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

    @blunt lighten up everybody

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous It’s “Panhellenic” not “PanHellenic”.

    This mistake is made on every single Greek life post.

  • Speaking of sororities says:

    @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.

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous nope, no dreamcatchers. just feathers.

    2. Is there a reason... says:

      @Is there a reason... …that this is relevant? Feathers are culturally offensive now? These are the tanks, FYI:

      It’s interesting that you are even aware of these considering they literally came in days before the end of last semester. Has anyone ever complained about your need to stir up drama where there is none to be found?

      1. I stand by it. says:

        @I stand by it. It even says “Native Feathers” in the URL you provided.

        1. Sigh. says:

          @Sigh. Obviously you have some other issue here and will continue to try to find problems where they do not exist. We didn’t design the tanks and I’m sure that there are other designs like this for other sororities. They are not offensive, not even a little, but feel free to continue wasting your energy trying to bring people down. What’s it to you, anyway? It’s this kind of negativity and irrelevancy that makes Columbia such a stressful place.

    @Anonymous 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?

    @Anonymous … 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

      @Anonymous Dunno – all I know is that some of the least pretentious nicest people I met @ Columbia were in greek orgs

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous 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!

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous 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.

      @Anonymous if you are so concerned about the quality of the free website, why don’t you volunteer and work there and make it better rather than anonymously criticizing the people who spend their time trying to keep you informed.
