Some of the members of the Omicron Beta Chapter, Epsilon Sigma Lambda Chapter, and representation from the Area 1 Leadership Team met with the Dean of Students at Barton College on February 28, 2017. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the expansion of the Omicron Beta Chapter to Barton College. The Omicron Beta Chapter has a joint charter for both Barton College and North Carolina Wesleyan College. Barton College chartered on October 9th, 1980 and North Carolina Wesleyan College on March 21st 1982. The last time there were Alphas who were initiated at Barton College was the Charter line in 1980. After meeting with the Dean of Students, Barton College is in full support to return the Alphas to campus after 37 years. Upon submitting paperwork, the Omicron Beta Chapter is planning to be the only Divine Nine Greek organization at Barton College. The Brothers of Area 1 are excited for the expansion of the Fraternity to another college campus!
