  • FSL Expansion Statement - Fall 2020
    The Fraternity and Sorority Life community at Virginia Commonwealth University has halted all expansion. The community will not begin accepting applications again until at least Fall 2021. Presently, the community feels that this is not the appropriate time to expand. As the community navigates the shift in operations due to COVID-19 and adapts to those changes they feel now is not the time to add to the community.
