Thanks for your message. I prefer to communicate with other posters soley on the message boards. That said, I'd be happy to have some OT "conversations" with you. Beta Theta Chapter...our chapter recently voted to sell our house, as have most other fraternities, to the university. Didn't have much choice, but by doing the sale, the fraternity is allowed to continue to exist. Had we dug our heels in like DKE, we would not be recognized by the university and things would get real ugly.
Sorry for the late reply, but I have been out of pocket for a while. I have heard that getting rid of houses is not all too uncommon these days. Fortunately our house, Gamma Eta, is doing well. I think that the implementation of the Men of Principle is going to help things in the long run. I look forward to talking to you more OT.
