Anonymous asked: how long would it take to add a school to a chapter ? is it a long process ? would the interest be able to pledge by the grad chapter ?
So to be honest, I have fielded more questions about getting a school added to a city-wide/metropolitan chapter in the past two months than I ever have in ten+ years of Greekdom.
In fact, I had the feeling that such chapters were falling out of favor. With higher numbers of people of color enrolling in colleges, there have been examples of spin-off chapters.
For example, in Washington, DC, in the late 1970s, Lambda Zeta Chapter of AKA was THE city-wide chapter. Later came Mu Delta at GWU. Georgetown, Trinity, and Catholic Universities gained their own charter, Omicron Pi, while Mount Vernon College closed and absorbed with GW.
So I don’t know where y’all are with these schools without chapters or charters, but I don’t know everything so I guess this is still normal.
The short answer to your question is that it varies. There’s no way to know how long it would take.
Contact the national office of the org you are pursuing and ask them.
Anonymous asked: Hey! I'm interested in Zeta and went to their awareness meeting last week, and they seemed very nice They told us we needed atleast 40 community service hours to apply. I haven't done any community service for years but I have hundreds of hours. I'm pretty sure they'll have a Spring line, do you think I should just go ahead and do forty more hours before Spring starts or do you think I'll be fine?
If meeting the qualification to the letter is an option, meet the qualification. Don’t half ass things you want. If for some reason you’re unable to complete 40 hours of service this semester, fall back on what you’ve done, but don’t give up and start leaning on EXCUSES.
Remember that any organization is a time commitment. So, if you’re struggling to find 40 extra hours this semester, imagine how much more difficult it will be as a member.

Anonymous asked: Hey! I'm currently a junior and am interested in an NPHC sorority on my campus. I have been for about 2 years now. I will be abroad next semester and will therefore miss next semester's line. I have been thinking heavily about attempting to join the organization in my senior year. The only thing is that I would be pledging in my last semester as an undergrad. I'm not sure if I should just go for it or just wait until grad school. What do you guys think?
Anonymous asked: Hello! I'm sure you've answered this before, but I couldn't find it on your page. I've been pre-pledging for a semester, and everything's been good. I'm just nervous as too what the pre-pledging entails. I'm assuming that means they really want me in the org as much as I want to be in it...But I just don't know. Can you help clarify for me?
Our stance on pre-pedging is on the FAQs toward the bottom.
I really don’t understand the rest of the question. If you’ve been pre-pledging, you already know what it entails, right?

Anonymous asked: Hello guys, I am really interested in becoming a BGLO (two in particular). I just wanted to know how gay/bisexual guys are looked at in the black greek world. I know this is a taboo topic in the divine nine and ive been trying to do some research but i cant find any clear cut answers. Are there any frats that are more accepting than others? Should i tell the members or the president of my sexuality before i start the actually process? do gays get treated differently?
The first thing you need to do is decide which fraternity you want to join.
Good luck, friend.
Anonymous asked: Hello you guys, I'm currently at a community college getting my A.S degree, but I've always been interested in Zeta Phi Beta. Once upon a time I did go to a university but I changed my career plan and am now at the CC. Now my question is, is it even possible to join a graduate chapter for me or should I scrap my hope to be a woman of Zeta and just become an amicae? Thanks in advance for any answers
