The sorority housing project is still currently on hold, two months after national chapters did not allow Ball State sororities to move forward with housing lease agreements.
In March, NewsLink Indiana reported that presidents and members of all the sororities on campus were notified that the national chapters were unable to agree on the length of the leases for the housing project.
At that time, university spokesperson Joan Todd released a statement regarding the decision: “The sorority housing project is on hold indefinitely. ... The university is exploring other possibilities to continue with the project, but no decisions are imminent.”
Kari Murphy, associate director of student life said there are no new updates since that decision was made.
The houses were part of Ball State's Greek Village project, originally planned to be built on Riverside Avenue. The project would potentially include sorority and fraternity houses.
According to the website, the university had plans to work with the international, national and local sororities to develop plan that "meets the needs of current and future sorority members."
Recently, the Sigma Kappa and Alpha Gamma Delta houses on campus were torn down, which raised questions.
Todd confirmed that the houses were torn down and will be replaced as the new home for the Health Sciences Building.

Members of Alpha Gamma Delta, Phi Mu and Sigma Kappa have lived in university-owned houses on Riverside Avenue since January 2008, according to bsu.edu. Kappa Delta moved into a house in January 2009.
Due to national headquarter policies, Caroline Ogan, Sigma Kappa chapter president said the organization and it's members cannot comment on the house being torn down.
