Alpha Chi Omega has made no tangible steps toward recolonizing since the vast majority of its members deactivated to join OAX last spring.

During the spring rush period, the sorority house remained empty and closed as potential new members filtered in and out of neighboring houses. The sorority’s former members, however, successfully recruited their first pledge class as the off-campus organization OAX.

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is unaware whether the sorority plans to recolonize at Penn, OFSL Director Eddie Banks-Crosson said.

“The national sorority will not be participating in formal sorority recruitment, and we await next steps,” he said. “Unfortunately, that’s all the information we have right now.”

Last spring, members of Alpha Chi Omega deactivated and vacated the sorority house located on 39th and Spruce streets after being subject to 22 sanctions from the University.

Alpha Chi Omega could not participate in formal recruitment because there are no current members.

Representatives from the Alpha Chi Omega national chapter came to campus last fall and passed out flyers to recruit members in an effort to recolonize, but these representatives did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
