Phi Delta Theta Says Goodbye, For Now

On Thursday, The Daily Collegian published an article announcing the now defunct Phi Delta Theta fraternity has “no plans to recolonize.” When interviewed, Phi Delta Theta’s alumni Board of Directors expressed their disagreement with the national associations alcohol policy as the reason why they’re not jumping at the bit to recolonize.

The fraternity has seen a few tumultuous years. They were first disbanded in 2008 by their National Headquarters for violating the aforementioned alcohol policy. Penn State then bought their 223 N. Burrowes Rd. property from them to create a “green space,” but not without a few legal woes along the way. Throw in a house fire, and some booby graffiti, and that’s where we are today.

With funds still in the treasury, board member Sandy Deveney told the Collegian: “We have the money to get another house if we wanted it, but at this point in time there’s no point throwing ourselves back in the hole if we don’t agree with our national chapter.”

So for now, it appears to be the end of the road for Phi Delta Theta at Penn State, may it R.I.P.
