Unrecognized/Banned Organizations

SUNY Potsdam has three former fraternities and one former sorority that are banned organizations:

  • Alpha Delta Kappa (Alpha)
  • Phi Chi Epsilon (Phi Chi), which is currently operating as DOD
  • Psi Phi Delta (Psi Phi), which is currently operating as Psi Phi Epsilon
  • Sigma Pi (Sig Pi), which is currently operating as Epsilon Omega

Banned organizations are not affiliated with SUNY Potsdam and cannot offer the benefits of belonging to Greek Life. These groups all became banned due to dangerous activities that resulted in multiple violations of College policy and the law. It is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct to join or affiliate with banned organizations. Students who join, accept membership, affiliate in any way or seek to perpetuate a banned organization are subject to judicial referral and potential suspension and expulsion.

In addition, there are several organizations that are currently not recognized by SUNY Potsdam, and thus, are not permitted to take new members.  These include Delta Lambda Nu (Delta), Gamma Sigma Sigma (Gamma Sig), Lambda Sigma Upsilon (LSU), Phi Kappa Sigma (Phi Kap), and Theta Omega Phi (Pro­metheus).
