The drinking age then was 18 and we would occasionally check ID's of people who show up on their own. This kid shows up and he is not in college and not even 18 (he is 16). We escort him to the door and he leaves. Around 11:00 p.m. when the Sororities and Little Sisters have arrived and the beer and liquor is flowing we hear "Blam, Blam, Blam". I am outside on the patio and everyone hits the ground. The idiot has come back to the house p.o.'d about being shown the door and is standing behind a big oak tree firing at us with a rifle. Luckily he didn't hit anyone and some of the brothers (not me) jumped him and held him until the police came. I don't think we pressed charges but he scared the heck out of us.

The party continued and a great time was had by all. (from what I remember)

WTF!!

I was thinking Fleur-de-Lis. I see them EVERYWHERE and kinda wish I were a Kappa so I could have an excuse to wear them all the time (/ have easy Bid Day gifts).

Ok I'll just come out and say it since it has already been guessed:rolleyes:. They were anchors, it was at the DG house. Sweet girls, just a really random rush topic I thought. And to show it to me....so weird.

LOL im pretty sure at one point when I was an undergrad, panda stuff starting popping up everywhere and a good amount of my sisters had identical panda shirts/accessories so I can understand the obsession. But yea you're right..kinda weird to flash undergarments during recruitment..

When I was an active American Eagle was selling pajama t-shirts that had a squirrel and the word "nut" on them.

I'd say that more than half of my chapter bought it (I still have mine, actually).

lol--Target had some pink, green, and white sweaters during spring 08. We grabbed all of the sizes we could at our local target for our new girls, and snagged four more at the Target half an hr away.

If you see any AKA videos on youtube from around Jan to May of 08, about half of them have those sweaters. Lol. My chapter wasn't the only one out for them. :)

When you posted this my first thought is A) It's not us! We never have quatrefoils on anything, people don't even know what to call that shape! My next thought was: WHERE CAN SOME QUATREFOIL UNDERWEAR! My sisters are SOO cool! (This sounds exactly like something I would STILL do!) LOL! (Although I'm still kinda glad it wasn't us!) :o

Yeah I understand the color things... I actually have purchased a TON of Blue and WHite stuff! I see it eveywhere and I'm just like it ADPI color I must have it. It also probably doesn't help by college and highschool's color is blue. SO I completely understand, but something about anchor underwear just doesn't sit well with me. Although for all the DG's out there, ya'll should hit up your local Charlote Russe. My Alpha gam friend and I were there today, and boy did they have a butt load of anchors. They were everywhere and on everything.

I was actually looking at their website yesterday and I didn't really see anything with anchors on it. I think I saw one shirt. They must have VERY different things in the stores.

Ok, this is definitely not the weirdest on the thread, but my sisters and I all still laugh at it.

One of my sisters, when she was going through formal recruitment, the rho chi's messed up her name tag so it randomly had a "5" on the end of her name. To every active sister during the first day that asked her why there was a 5 there, or if they looked puzzled about her name tag, she'd say "Oh the 5 is silent." She said that every girl she talked to that day except for the girls in one house did NOT get the joke, and instead said something like, "Oh...that was weird of your parents..." (No offense meant to those girls! I am sure it was a long day for them. But still...)

In fact, she ended up choosing our chapter BECAUSE the active sister she said the same joke to actually understood, and laughed accordingly.

Honest to God true story! Scared the heck out of me.

Well, now that I'm done going through recruitment, to go into more detail, I had a couple funny experiences, nothing really too shocking:

1. At my beloved Alpha Chi on skit night, after the performance I was talking to a sister when suddenly we heard a loud thud and a bunch of girls ran into the kitchen. I found out later on bid day that one of the sisters had actually passed out during the round! :eek:

2. At one of the sororities, a sister and I started talking about movies and when I brought up the Lovely Bones, she was like "Oh, I don't really like sci-fi horror movies".I didn't really know what to say, and so there was an extended awkward silence. But then again, this same girl told me that I shouldn't really make the crafts at any of the chapters because they didn't really matter.

Again, not revolutionary, but I have 3 years of recruitment to get better stories haha
