At a hearing held by the Office of Judicial Affairs, students in the sorority admitted that such activities did occur.

The sorority, which occupies a house on University property at 301A Pencader Way, has 79 sisters and 43 new recruits, for a membership of 122. The chapter was chartered at UD in 1982.
