is greek life dying at wpu?by: ???
It seem to me that for the past 12 years, WPU has lost so many Greek Organizations either by Hazing allegation, risk management violations and/ or membership declining. Last year, Alpha Phi Delta got shut down and now we lost Alpha Sigma Tau due to hazing. We are now down to only 3 NIC fraternities and 3 NPC sororities. I feel that WPU Greek Life is heading for closure in within the next ten years.

Greek life was thriving during the 80's and early 90's. We had a total of 12 fraternities (10 National & 2 local) and 7 sororities (6 National & 1 local). It started to decline by late 90's and well into the 2000's. There were so many Greeks on campus back then that were involved with many school events, SGA, SAPB, etc. and now to see only three fraternities and three sororities remaining is very sad. I do not see this lasting too much longer. It is now on life support.

There are way too many inactive Greeks compared to active Greeks. This is not looking good.\n\n\n\n\n

Why is this discussion only centered around the white fraternities and sororities? IFC and NPC aren't the only type of orgs on campus - there is UCGC (Multicultural and Latino orgs) and NPHC (Black orgs). In fact, there are many more culturally based orgs than there are historically white.

WP fraternities still HAZE. It’s horrible what they do to degrade them and break them but for what??? It needs to stop before someone seriously gets hurt then everyone will say lie don’t say anything. Would definitely not recommend to my worst enemy. So glad I changed my mind after hearing the horror stories.

Gamma Chi was a local sorority founded at WPC in 1965. It merged with Alpha Sigma Tau in 1990 and Nu Theta Chi local sorority founded in 1958 merged with Theta Phi Alpha. Also, Theta Gamma Chi was founded at WPC in 1959.
