Remember that 2002 lawsuit, where AKA said the city-wide chapter had been suspended? Then why in 2004 were 4 girls from the Sigma chapter suspended before the lawsuit had been settled out of court? I read a 2004 article where settlement talks were still going on, and these girls are supended from that chapter: you don't suspend girls from an inactive chapter that was suspended in 2000. Now I understand the dynamics of city-wide chapters, but how are you going to suspend Sigma chapter WITHOUT SUSPENDING ALL THE SCHOOLS associated with it? (i.e. how are people from one school going to know that there school's chapter is suspended when all the other schools are still active?
CAN AN INFORMED MEMBER OR EX-MEMBER EXPLAIN??????
In AKAland suspensions are a funny thing. You can suspend a chapter i.e no activities, programs, business etc without suspending it's members.So basically they can still wear para, go to conferences but no chapter business. You can suspend a member without suspending the chapter. Suspension of individuals is done on an individual basis. Suspension of members is revocation of all AKA rights for a certain time period. No para, strolling, business,can't even show up at sorority functions.
The Sigma Chapter was suspended in 2000, I remember because I was going to be on the spring 1999 line of the Sigma chapter. I found out later that this chapter did some major hazing with that line. Which is why the chapter was suspended. This chapter covered three different schools and they were Mount St. Mary's College, Pepperdine University, Loyola University, NOT Cal state Los Angeles, which involved the two young ladies that drowned.
Yes they were lying.
This chapter was suspended in 2000 due to the hazing that happen with the spring 1999 line. There was never a Sigma chapter with Cal state LA, The sigma chapter ONLY covered 3 private colleges. There is no way the sigma chapter was at CAL state LA
Unless that X-AKA went to either Mount st. marys College, Loyola Marymount university or Pepperdine then she would probably know more than me. But I doubt it because the Sigma Chapter at that time was very small no more than 10 girls if that. And I knew the Majority of them.
The sigma chapter was not active in 2002, especially at the Cal state la campus where the two ladies attended because the Sigma chapter only covered three schools which are private. The Sigma Chapter covered one other private school and that was USC (university of Southern California), but they decided to chart another chapter, which became the Iota beta Chapter in May 1974. Therefore, the Sigma chapter only cover the three schools I mention before. Cal state la never had an Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, only DST and ZPB.
I am pretty sure I would know the person because during the time that I was going to be online in the Spring of 1999 There were only about ten members at that time. It was a very small chapter. I remember when I went to the Informational in Jan. 1999, I meet all of the girls that were active in the Sigma Chapter at that time, three of then attended the school I was going to at the time.
So to answer your question one more time Min H. There was no Sorority of Alpha Kappa Alpha at California State University Los Angeles. I remember when it was on the news, I was shocked because I knew The Sigma Chapter never existed at that University. It is sad that two young ladies had to lose their lives under false pretenses.
It was suspended in 1999 and never became active again. Once I found out why they were suspended, I did not pursue it in the Fall of 1999. I graduated in the fall of 2002, from one of those schools that I listed before and the chapter was still suspended. Which is why I said before, when I heard that the so called sigma chapter at Cal state La was involved. I knew for a fact that the chapter was suspended in 1999. Because I was still going to school.
After the Spring of 2000, there were only about 4 girls who were members of the Sigma chapter. Those girls graduated in the Fall of 2000.Thereafter there were no presence of any Alpha Kappa Alpha after Fall of 2000. At any of the schools.
yep, they had already graduated in 2000. And one of the members that was listed on the expelled list of members at the Boule 2004 was living in TN at the time. Everything seems strange to me, Min. H
