Afterwards, we will be having an off-campus function at O’Brien’s (the old Pete & Larry’s), and the Actives will be able to join us.  We also get a Kappa discount at the Waterville Grand Hotel at the same location, which is 375 Main Street in Waterville (phone: 207-873-0111).

Kappa Delta Phi not long for this world

It started out as rumors, it’s official with eye witnesses confirming it.

The National Board disaffiliated from the sisterhood today at P/T.  No vote was taken from the representative body (actives), it was all done behind closed doors. The actives were informed of the board decision and told no vote was needed.

Other news in the forums and more info:

As of today the brotherhood has no sisters according to the Board.
