Underground Organizations

Please pay particular attention to underground organizations such as “Machi,” “Kapps,” “APES” and “FIJI” which are former fraternities who have lost recognition due to failure to comply with University policy yet continue to promote themselves as a fraternity. These groups are not recognized by a national organization or the University and, therefore function without any oversight. Any group that is listed as suspended but continues to function would be considered an underground organization. If you are approached by any of these groups, please contact FSLL at 302-831-6167.
