Delta Delta Delta Will Not Return to Campus

The Panhellenic Delegate Council announced that it had extended an invitation to Delta Delta Delta (Tri Delta) to rejoin the Panhellenic council, but the sorority’s Executive Board has voted unanimously not to accept the invitation. The group was given until Monday to make a decision on whether or not to rejoin Greek life at Penn State.

“We sent a letter to the University late Monday afternoon,” said Jason Gomez, the national Director of Chapter Services for the Northeast. “After lengthy discussion and a unanimous vote, the Executive Board of Tri Delta has voted not in favor of returning to Penn State.”

The charter for the sorority was revoked by the national executive committee for Tri Delta in December 2009 after an investigation into “hazing and risk management violations” proved conclusive, and the Panhellenic council banned Tri Delta sisters from joining any other sororities.
