"The Town Hall is a platform for members of UMBC's Greek community to come and hear about upcoming Greek-sponsored events and programs, as well as share their personal success stories, and encourage their fellow Greeks to continue to address challenges that have significance in our world." - Morina
a week of fun, games
students inspire at Greek Week
"Greeks of UMBC had the chance to share and recognize how they have transformed many of their goals into real accomplishments. Susan Dumont, Coordinator of Student Life for Fraternities and Sororities, hosted a Greek town hall meeting last week that presented some of the positive aspects of UMBC's fraternities and sororities."
A Look at UMBC's Greek Community
"A person's arrival to a university is a life-changing experience, with college offering students endless amounts of clubs and organizations in which to immerse themselves. One potential solution for students wanting to get involved while at UMBC is the Greek life system. Collectively, there are nineteen Greek associations on campus; for the men, there are the fraternities, and for the women, the sororities. And while Greek life has attracted some stereotypes, especially from the movies, brothers and sisters are keen to promote the positive activities that go on among their associations." - Ingelby
"A letter from Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Charles Fey addressed to Chris Casini, President of the UMBC Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE), revealed the details last Friday of a three-year suspension of the organization with the opportunity to lift the suspension if certain conditions are met." http://tinyurl.com/rweeklySAEsuspension
The Retriever Weekly reported on November 27, 2001, that the Zeta Kappa chapter of ZBT closed on November 15th after receiving judicial sanctions for violating the student code of conduct.
Alpha Phi Alpha's Nu Kappa Chapter has been inactive since 2007. The University is not currently in position to bring this organization back to campus.
From The Retriever Weekly, Volume 3, Number 1
Promise #1: Establish a fraternity and sorority council on campus -- The constitutionality of such an action is now being discussed in the Senate.
Based on this and other details from very early newspapers, it appears there may have been at least one local fraternity as early as 1967.
The University states that Fraternities will not join campus this year, but does imply that the University will host a greek community in the future.
