Four sororities get new houses on Laird Campus

     Four sororities at UD-Chi Omega, Phi Sigma Sigma, Alpha
Sigma Alpha and Kappa Delta-will move this fall into new homes
being built by the University on the Laird Campus, near the
Pencader Residence Hall Complex.
     Each sorority will be given a 10-year lease, beginning Sept.
2, 1996, subject to renewal. Each of the facilities will
accommodate 15 members.
     Sisters of Phi Sigma Sigma previously lived in a University
house on Orchard Road. This building will be vacated and another
sorority, Alpha Epsilon Phi, will move into the site. When that
is done, 9 of the 11 campus sororities will have their own
     According to Tim Brooks, dean of students, "The University
has been interested in providing adequate housing for sororities,
and the construction of these new facilities is a major step in
accomplishing that goal."
