I usually just sign it Sincerely or something like that.

I think "Fraternally" would work nicely.

One of the first emails I got from a GC'er was "In the Bonds". I didn't know if it was her sorority signature.

I got an email from a ZTA that was signed:

LITPB

That was cool with me

I usually use the same one I'd use for sisters....

Tau Delta Love and Mine eternal,
Tracey

Or

To Thine Own Self Be True,
Tracey

When I send email reminders and agendas out to the other 60-70 people on the Greek Alumni Alliance I generally put either: Loyally or Sincerely. I don't think most of them would appreciate TLAM(Theta Love and Mine).

That's what I do, because all GLOs are bonds in some form or another :-).

On a formal letter, I tend to use Panhellenically or Fraternally.

I normally use these for any correspondence - even for PMs here on GC! :)

I understand the others' use of "loyally", yet I only use it for written communication with my sisters :)

I think "Fraternally" would be appropriate, as would "Best Wishes," "Sincerely," "Respectfully," etc., for formal correspondence related to Greek Life with those outside your GLO.

If you're writing to a fellow Greek and it doesn't have to do with a Greek issue, don't sign "Fraternally." Use an appropriate formal closing, like the others I mentioned above.

Writing an informal note to another Greek, I might sign it "PanLove," "Greek Love" or use "Pi Love," "Pi Love and Mine," etc., depending on who I was talking to!

In ADPi Speak, I would close a formal letter to a sister with "Loyally." If it was to a sister I am close to I would close it "Love & Loyally" or "L&L." A informal letter to an ADPi would be closed with "Pi Love" or "Pi Love & Mine" (aka PLAM).

Good topic! No one seems to write letters anymore and it's good to think about this stuff! Makes me want to write to people! :)

I sign "Sisterly" to NPHC organizations. Everyone else gets a "Sincerely"

I would suggest avoiding "Fraternally." In some GLOs, that is the appropriate sign-off for brothers/sisters only. For example, although one sees variants of it, the traditional sign-off for correspondence between brothers in my Fraternity is:

Fraternally yours,
In FMA,
MysticCat

For the same reason, I would avoid "In the Bonds." While it is true, as JupiterTC said above, that all Greeks are in bonds of some sort, "In the Bonds" implies that the letter-writer and the receiver of the letter are bound by the same bonds -- the implication is "Yours in the Bonds of ABC." And again, "In the Bonds" in the traditional sign-off for use between members in some GLOs.

I would either go with something generic like "Sincerely" or "Very Truly Yours," or with something that cannot be confused with a GLO specific sign-off, such as "Yours in the Spirit of Interfraternal/Panhellenic Cooperation."

Just mty $0.02.

Go with DeltAlum with one exception depending on who I am sending to.

1. To Fraternitys-Male GLO Members, Interfraternaly Yours.
2. Any others-Respectfully Yours, Kindest Regards.
3. LXA Brothers-IN ZAX.

It never hurts to show signs of Respect.:)

To other Greeks:
Interfraternally,

To other SAIs (formal):
Fraternally,

To other SAIs (informal):
Love in SAI,
or
Love and Roses,

In Alpha Sigma Phi, it's usually 'Fraternally', many brothers use "Yours in Alpha Sigma Phi" or "Yours in Phi" or even more informally "In Phi" or "Phi".

To other groups, wouldn't it make more sense to use "Interfraternally"? As in, "respect/etc. between our organizations"?

Our formal signature is C., F. & S,. It stands for Cordially, Fraternally and Sincerely. I dont know if anyone else uses it, I think it is a ZBT thing, so dont get any ideas. But that is what we do.

I usually just say "Panhellenically".

For Gamma Phi Beta, we sign our letters to each other:

Love in IIKE,

In IIKE,


However, for letters to other Greeks, I write:

Fraternally,

In Panhellenic Spirit,


.....Kelly :)

This is an interesting topic, It also has never crossed my mind to say something specific to other groups. I only put a diffirent closing i guess for bro's, everyone else gets a generic closing or wut ever.
