Please note: Neither Tulane University, its Interfraternity Council, nor the fraternities' national organizations recognize Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi, "828"), Delta Kappa Epsilon (DKE), Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike), Sigma Alpha Mu (Sammy), or Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp) on our campus. The University does not allow students to join a fraternity or sorority that we do not recognize. Students who choose to affiliate with unrecognized organizations may face Student Conduct action. Sanctions for students found responsible for violating the Code of Student Conduct by affiliating with or supporting an unrecognized organization may range from a warning to suspension or expulsion from the University.
Unrecognized fraternities and sororities are not held to the University or governing council standards that govern their behavior. They operate without the oversight, training, and education provided by staff in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Programs nor by any national organization. 

Please note: The University is currently working with staff from Kappa Sigma on plans to reestablish their chapter at Tulane. Affiliating with the group of students interested in this effort does not constitute affiliating with an unrecognized organization.
