Undergraduate Housing Mandate

A real threat to the Sigma, and all Greek chapters at Penn, is now looming…
 
Penn’s President and Provost announced on September 27 a new mandate that both freshman and sophomores will be required to reside in a College dorm building starting the fall of 2020.  This new requirement directly impacts the Sigma, as well as Penn’s 31 other Greek chapters, which are currently occupied by a mix of sophomores, juniors, and seniors. 
 
The University has a 90% occupancy rate requirement which, if the Chapter doesn’t meet, will automatically put the Chapter on probation.  If that sub-90% occupancy rate continues, then the Chapter’s charter will be revoked and kicked off campus.  For the Sigma, that requires that at least 14 gentlemen live in the Chapter house and sophomores have made up more than half of the chapter house’s residents for quite a number of years.  Without exaggeration, this new mandate threatens the very existence of Zeta Psi at Penn.
