TriDelt Nationals Totes Not FTK

sadgirlAs most of you are already aware, the 62-year-old Penn State Chapter of TriDelta was shut down last week due to hazing violations. Only a few that were directly involved in the hazing lost their membership, leaving some with hope that the sorority could eventually return, like a beautiful Phoenix rising from the ashes. But the chances of that happening in the near future look bleak.

Former President of Delta Delta Delta Deena Berger said the sorority was particularly upset about the ΔΔΔ National Executive Board’s decision that the group could not participate in THON. After hearing their chapter would be closed on December 4th, sixty-one of the girls handed in the resignation forms – which were dated before (and apparently filled out during) the investigation.

Karina Shaver, PR person for the national sorority, wrote that the THON probation was a merely a potential consequence from the hazing violations; ultimately, the board chose to close the chapter as punishment. Regardless, the ΔΔΔ members did not want to be associated with an organization that would “be so patronizing and by a national sorority that could honestly believe that taking away a selfless act for families with children who have been diagnosed with pediatric cancer was an acceptable addition to whatever punishment lie ahead,” said former Delta Delta Delta president Deena Berger.

The ladies have since created a THON group called Trilogy and remain paired with fraternity Kappa Delta Rho. They may not be for their new pledges, but at least they’re for the kids!
