Officials postpone Greek housing announcement

Officials postponed announcing the eight Greek-letter fraternities and sororities that will move into Townhouse Row next fall until Friday, noting more discussion is necessary before a decision can be made.

“There is a little more homework that needs to be done,” said Mike Gargano, associate vice president for Student and Academic Support Services, who was scheduled to release the names Monday.

Sixteen fraternities and sororities submitted applications to live in the eight townhouses, dubbed the “Greek Village,” in November. The project, set to include six 24-bed and two 30-bed townhouses is currently under construction on the old Smith Center parking lot and scheduled to open next fall.

Fraternities, like Kappa Sigma and Tau Kappa Epsilon, that already own houses on campus applied to live in the Greek Village. Gargano said the University is interested in purchasing more properties around campus but fraternity holdings would not be a determining factor to whether groups will receive a spot in the townhouses.

The announcement is now scheduled for Friday morning, Gargano said.
