Update - I am hearing that Pike has Zeta in the bag. They are saying they signed the lease and I guess they are just waiting on some finishing details. This is weird to me because isn't Pike just an un-housed version of Zeta that does a little more on campus because they are actually recognized by Rutgers?? Whatever, I hope this isn't true though.
Honestly I think TKE would be a much better fit for the house. The Rutgers Community would also benefit from this because they are a lot of fun and have crazy parties already!
It does not matter who gets the house. If it's TKE or Pike, I would not get to comfortable because it is only for a short term. Zeta Psi will be back into 4 years and will kick out whoever is the renter. Tke or Pike, you guys will become homeless again.
no they wouldnt? you must be stupid to think all the alumni from zeta would let their alumni board destroy that house. thats atleast a hundred years of memories and alumni connections in that house. You must never have heard your alumni talk about all the memories they had in their house when they lived there
you sir, are a dumb***....zeta alumni have no control over what goes on right now, they can try to control the current brothers but realistically they cannot due **** besides threaten them with fines....right now, Zeta is full of crazy degenerates that are pissed off and saddened by the fact that Zeta is shutting down, they are going to destroy the house and make sure whoever lives in it next regrets buying it
No one has a lease signed on that house. There's an open house this sunday (not open to active members, just alumni / national organization reps) where the next steps in finding occupancy for that house will happen.
I'm pretty sure Pike isn't recognized by Rutgers. At least that's what my friend that's in pike told me a couple months back so idk how they would be able to get that house. And also, I heard from someone in Panhel that one of the rules they voted on for Phi Mu coming to Rutgers was that they weren't aloud to get a big house right off the bat (specifically bigger than GPhi) so there wouldn't be the 'Phi Sig' effect where they came in and got a huge house which made them hated by all of the other sororities. I could be wrong tho. Either way if they get the house that would be a shame because it's another huge house that would be great for fraternity parties wasted on a sorority who's not going to do anything in there (like phi sig and sk)
I agree there are very few huge fraternity lettered houses on campus. However, if the fraternities would STOP getting kicked off campus as they been doing for the last several years, maybe they can start retaining their huge houses instead of losing them to the sororities.
i've heard rumors that DKE alumni are in talks about buying the house and renting it out to another organization as a business investment, with hope to eventually occupy it with DKE brothers as a second house when their current house gets filled to capacity.
