That's it, unless you count my cousin's fiancee who's in a local.

Sorry to re-hash an old subject! I used the search to look for a similar thread before posting, and the thread from '03 did NOT come up. Hmmm.... maybe my key words weren't exactly right.:confused:

I think that it is sooo awesome that so many of our families represent so many groups!!! :D Yay for GREEK pride!!!

This search was trickier than some because the search terms -- Greek, family, specific Greek letters -- are so common throughout GC. I found it only because I knew I had posted in that thread, so I could search my own posts only and narrow down some specific words I knew I would have used in my post. I still had to go through four or five pages of results.

Cousin: local sorority of which I've forgotten the name
Dad: Tau Delta Phi
Me: Alpha Phi Omega
Cousin: Chi Omega

That's it as far as I know.

Grandmother - Kappa Kappa Gamma
3 Aunts - local at PSU, have to find out what it became
1 Cousin - Sigma Sigma Sigma
2 Cousins - Alpha Delta Pi which is really strange, because at the time each of us pledged, none of us knew that the others were ADPis! We each found out when we saw each others' names in the Adelphean.
2 male Cousins were Greek, but I don't know which GLO(s). My cousins are all much older than I (like 20+ years).

Me: Alpha Phi

Haha that's about all I know! lol

My cousins' grandmother (her dad's mom) is a Delta Gamma, but I don't know if I can consider her since she *technically* isn't related to me.

Hello All!

I seem to always be reading threads that mention.... My cousin is XYZ sorority or my uncle is ABC. I know there are lots of us that have many chapters represented within their families. So just out of curiosity, what GLO's are represented in your family?

Me: Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., & Omega Phi Alpha
My fiance: Phi Kappa Sigma
My brother: Sigma Phi Epsilon
My cousin: Zeta Tau Alpha

To my knowledge, that's it - most of family before the present generation did not have traditional college experiences (they went later or did the commuter thing, if they went at all).

Oh, also ...

My future brother-in-law: Phi Kappa Tau
My fiance's grandfather (what is the term for that?): I don't remember the name, but a national Catholic fraternity that was later merged in to Phi Kappa Theta

LTA4 03-13-2007 04:24 PM

my mom was in some local sorority called tau sigma gamma...

my dad was in Alpha Phi Omega...

My aunt is a VERY proud and active Delta-- she owns a Greek Shop in Hampton, VA

And I think one of my cousins is a Kappa

Myself - TKE
Niece -ASA
I have some distant relatives that I think are an ADPi and KAT.

My brother in law said some friends tried to get him to pledge Phi Delt when he was in college, but at that time he preferred being a hippy and playing guitar (He is over 40 now).
