DePauw Cuts Ties with Troubled Sorority

As reported by the Jackson News-Tribune:

DePauw University announced Monday it had severed ties with a sorority whose mass eviction of members sparked allegations that only attractive, popular students were asked to remain.

"We at DePauw believe that the values of our university and those of Delta Zeta sorority are incompatible," university President Robert G. Bottoms wrote in a letter delivered Monday to the sorority‘s national president, Deborah A. Raziano.

The sorority‘s members have long had a reputation as being known more for academics than partying, and their chapter was widely known among students as the "dog house."

Efforts to improve those numbers — and, some contend, the sorority‘s image — prompted Delta Zeta‘s national leadership to conduct a review to determine members‘ commitment to recruiting. As a result, it moved 23 members to alumnae status in December, evicting them from the sorority house. Six others left on their own.

DePauw‘s decision follows a letter of reprimand sent to the national organization Feb. 19.
