Closed Fraternity and Sorority Chapters


A closed fraternity or sorority chapter is one that has violated the Student Code of Conduct and lost all rights and privileges associated with being a recognized student organization at Bloomsburg University. Loss of recognition means that the organization or chapter cannot participate in any Greek-life activities and are not eligible to promote themselves as a University recognized student organization, access University funds or funding, reserve campus facilities, conduct fundraisers, or access student organization portals.

It's important to note that the University hosts both local and national organizations. Local organizations have an independent governing body of alumni and national organizations are chapters of an international organization with a governing body that oversees all associated chapters.

BU to begin disaffiliation with certain FSL organizations

Due to continued violations of previously announced reforms to its Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) system, Bloomsburg University will begin immediate disaffiliation with three recognized FSL student organizations that have incurred infractions since Dec. 2, 2019. The disaffiliation will be effective the beginning of the spring 2021 semester. It will continue for a period no less than five years, through at least the fall semester of 2025, when the disaffiliation may be revisited for effectiveness and overall interest in the university’s desire or opportunity to expand the FSL community. This action is being taken due to an overall non-compliance to university standards for student and organizational behavior and the defiance of the university’s zero-tolerance policy.
