Off-campus organizations and their place on Penn's campus have roared back into the spotlight following public backlash against an "offensive and sexist" email sent by the off-campus organization "OZ" last year.
Earlier this month, Penn announced several new policies to regulate these off-campus organizations, though it's not clear how they will be executed. This also isn't the first time Penn has attempted to regulate off-campus groups, many of which have existed at Penn since the 1980s.
In light of the University's efforts, The Daily Pennsylvanian decided to review the history behind various off-campus groups at Penn, looking into when they were formed, and why.
