^ Sweatshirts will survive removal of stitched letters. T-shirts, not so much. My big from my local gave me a sweatshirt with the local's letters, and, when we became a chapter of AEPhi, I had the letters changed. I don't think the stitched-letter T-shirts would have survived the process.

Saw a Zeta Phi Beta car tag frame on a car stopped next to me at a traffic light today.

How does an advisor recommend greek letter removal from glassware one donates to thrifts? Just for fun (after holiday shopping was over) I looked around in a few thrifts and noticed donated, for resale, greek letter glassware from at least seven different orgs.

And as for finding "greek letters" where one would not expect them: my teenage nephew asked for crazy fun socks for Xmas and received a medium blue pair covered with multiple yellow triangles, which brought Delta Delta Delta to mind (even thought they use gold, not yellow). I told him to save them for a future college girlfriend, just incase, but the school he's thinking of attending doesn't currently have a 3D chapter.

On last week's episode of This is Us....

(spoilers below if you're not caught up)

Randall went through some imagined scenarios about how his life would have been different if Jack hadn't died after the fire. In one of the scenarios, Randall went to Howard U (instead of staying close to home at Carnegie Mellon) and he joined Omega Psi Phi. There was a scene of him and some other Omega brothers doing a step show for some schoolchildren.

A woman wearing a Delta Sigma Theta sweater in 'Becoming', Michelle Obama's documentary (on Netflix) based on her memoir of the same name.

In our condo building, I've met an Alpha Phi Alpha and a Kappa Sigma, both alumni. I still seem to be the only sorority representative - or at least, one who wears letters.
