The Panhellenic Council chose the Alpha Phi sorority Friday to begin colonization on campus this fall, pending University approval of the chapter this week, said Alice Lingo, recruitment chair for the Phi Sigma Sigma sorority.
Panhellenic Council President Nini Khozeimeh said she will give her recommendation to the University Monday morning, and GW will most likely finalize the decision within the week.
The council voted to add a new sorority March 7 to offer more options to the GW community, Khozeimeh said. Alpha Sigma Alpha, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Delta and Alpha Xi Delta sororities also made presentations last week, but the Panhellenic Council accepted only Alpha Phi.
“We were looking for the most well-rounded (sorority) that would fit best in the GW community,” Khozeimeh said.
