Swarthmore’s 80-Year Sorority Ban Lifted

Students at Swarthmore College voted to ban sororities starting in 1933. The decision came after one of the campus chapters supposedly refused to admit a young woman because she was Jewish. So, for 80 years, Swarthmore was sorority free. Now, though, Kappa Alpha Theta is coming back to campus for the spring semester, hoping to offer students an opportunity to make professional connections otherwise unavailable at the small learning institution.
