I'm surprised that this is seldom discussed among the fandom. This topic seems shunted aside to discuss Johnny Worthington, Randall, and to a lesser extent Hardscrabble.
Even viewing the movie, I was questioning whether the film was going to bring up how this fraternity got started. What is a mature student doing here? How did it get established in Mrs. Squibbles's house.
I do have this secret but stretch of a wish that Pixar would make a short TV special that covers their origin story.

I read somewhere that Don's the founder of Oozma Kappa, so I suppose it's a relatively younger frat. (I don't know if that's true though).
I'm not sure why the OK house is off campus, though. I guess not all the sororites and frats can be on Frat Row.
I'd also like to see something that covered that too! Heck, I'd like to see what Oozma Kappa was up to Post-MU but pre-MU. I know that they (supposedly) all work at Monsters Inc, but they're definitely on a different scare floor.

I always thought they were off campus because well, they're just a group of misfits. If they were ignored on campus, I feel like the popular frats and sororities would kick them out of Frat Row. Kinda like 'you're not aloud to be here until you prove yourself' kinda thing. I mean with the reputation of the other frats, I would think it would make sense.

There are a lot of frats/sororities..so I guess OK was the newest frat but there was no room for Frat Row maybe? ROR and HSS are the oldest of all the frats/sororites. Anyhow, Don may have either been the founder of OK or has been a member when someone founded it and he took over as that other monster graduated. It's kinda strange that OK is at a residents house...Is that the case for some fraternaties/sororities in general at universities?
Viewing a map of Frat/Row, all houses seem to occupy those who have fundings.
I posted the question on tvtropes a while back: "Considering that Oozma Kappa is situated in the Squibbles's household in a normal neighborhood off-campus, not the on-campus Frat Row, how is this housing standard permitted for fraternities/sororities in Universities? And I find it curious that Hardscrabble later tells Sully to leave campus (and even Mike had to leave eventually), even though it seems Oozma Kappa live in a off-campus neighborhood."
And I got this reply:
Frat houses don't necessarily have to be on campus, just near campus. Frat Row is probably reserved for higher status frats, ones that have sponsorships, etc. As long as the house itself meets whatever standards the school has for frat houses, it can be one. And once a house is considered a frat house, it's officially part of the school, meaning if you get kicked out of school, you're kicked out of the frat.
So basically, the Squibbles's domestic household must have been registered to follow some of the campus protocol (apparently this included evicting Sulley and Mike when they were expelled)
How Mrs. Squibbles's house was selected is left up to speculation.
