"WE come this Far by Faith". Groove has survived 44 years with members' support and we will continue to survive till every member has their last breath. We dont have a board that give us money every year we do it ourselves. Survival through believers.
WOW you sound SO bitter! I think you need to bring it down a couple of notches...

Although most people will never (knowingly) meet a Groove, or do nothing more than see their plot on campuses or see them chanting or stepping at homecomings and select stepshows; it is good to know that they at least do things for the community. I don't hear about these ventures or see them but that doesn't mean these ventures don't exist.

I know many service ventures are without public recognition for our efforts, but I think that it is important to increase the visibility when we (at the organizational level) claim to have a presence in our communities.

Also While it pertains to "Greeks" much of their Architecture, mathematics and literature were stolen from a much more ancient african civilization. If you date the Pyramids and the Sphnix (A greek word) any archeologists will tell you they date as far back as 5000 bc at least some of the artifacts and some even older. They definitely predate the Romans, Greeks and Pheonecians by centuries. Africa is the Motherland and even though there is evidence that say that the human existence evolved in both Africa and SOuth East Asia around the same time, the fact is the majority of accomplishments that we credit Europeans with were founded in Africa. Think the Pyramid is a triangle so how did Pythagorus create his theorum.
I know this is, at this point, somewhat random and completely outdated, but does anyone understand this, especially this part:

Or you could take it for what it is--most people don't know who they are.

Yeah, that's true but people must be curious to still keep responding to this thread.

Actually there were some members of Groove Phi Groove in Ohio where I went to school. That's how I heard of them. I never heard of them before college though.

JUST THINK

YOU GUYS ARE NOT SEEING THE UNDERLYING MESSAGE. THIS IS THE SAME MOTIF THAT APPEARS IN MOST HIGH SCHOOLS. A GIRL WHO IS DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE FROM THE REST IS JUDGED AND FOCUSED ON BECAUSE THEY ARE DIFFERENT AND NOT LIKE THE REST. GROOVE PHI GROOVE IS THAT UNIQUE GIRL TO THE REST WHICH IS THE GREEK ORGANIZATIONS. HOWEVER, THEY ARE FOUNDED FOR MANY POSITIVES REASONS AND STILL UPLIFT THOSE REASONS. I AM NOT A GROOVE BUT I HAVE EMPATHY FOR THEM BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND THEIR POSITION. YOU HAVE MANY SIMILAR REASONS FOR WHY YOU GUYS WERE FOUNDED AND THOSE PURPOSES GIVE YOU NO REASON AND NEED TO ATTACK EACH OTHER. AND I AM SURE THAT IF YOU JUST THINK ABOUT THIS YOU WILL HAVE A CLEARER UNDERSTANDING....IF WE WERE HARD-CORE HISTORIANS AND RESEARCHERS...WE CAN PROBABLY FIND EVIDENCE THAT FALSIFIES AT LEAST ONE THING IN EVERY GREEK FRATERNITY AND SORORITY ( NOT PURPOSELY INCORPORATED INTO THE ORGANIZATIONS FOUNDERS) BUT NO ONE FOCUSES ON THAT BECAUSE THEY ARE "YOUR OWN". INSTEAD YOU FOCUS ON THE OUTCAST...GROOVE PHI GROOVE.

This rant of yours is completely off base. From what I've seen/heard, on most campuses where Grooves exist alongside the NPHC organizations, they are respected and included in BGLO campus activities and are a part of the BGLO campus culture. It is also important to note that there are many campuses where NPHC orgs exist and Groove does not exist. Many of our members have never had any dealings with the organization at all and have never even met a Groove. So while there may be some campuses where the relationship between NPHC orgs and Groove is strained (I personally haven't heard of this), the idea that Groove is treated as the outcast by our organizations is false overall, especially since as I stated before, many of our members have never had any dealings with the organization.

I only know one GPhiG. He pledged in the 1970s, I believe. Cool as a fan. Cool as a fan.

He says it was good for partying and he still keeps in touch with his frat from back then. Who could possibly hate on or feel threatened by something so...fun?

I am sorry that you have decided that you didnt want to read the rest of the posts from these some years ago. But this along with many forums have attacked groove phi groove about not being greek so just because your campus respects them doesnt make every other college so willing. so please dont tell me my "rant" is off base because from what i have researched and experienced, it is definitely not. and for the person that said," so groove is a girl" if your not intelligent enough to understand what I was saying, I dont think you should be on this post at all.

It lives....(sigh).

I could say that your's was a poorly chosen analogy, among other things, but what would be the point?

Groove

I never wanted to pledge a Fraternity, I often thought that Frats and Sororities did nothing more than segregate our community you can blame ďSchool DazeĒ for that. Then one night while aimlessly surfing the web I stumbled upon a link to page that mentioned Groove Phi Groove. With a peaked curiosity I googled Groove Phi Groove and found the national and local websites I read as much as I could find about Groove. I then called a close cousin of mine who is a Delta and asked her what she knew about Groove. She said she never heard of them and encouraged me to look into the BGLO as well. I took her advice and looked into one Org and then stopped, because I knew Groove was what I wanted. I reached out to the president of my local graduate chapter, I was invited to several fellowshipping events, attended an interest meeting and then went online. On 07/11/08 at age 35 I earned my Gís and the following May of 2009 I earned my BA! Through out my entire process my cousin the Delta did nothing but offer me positive encouragement. I knew when I pledged Groove I wasnít pledging the oldest, the biggest, or most popular Org. However, I was pledging the Org that spoke to me and thatís all that mattered. What made one brother pledge Alpha instead of Kappa or a sister pledge DST instead of AKA comes down to a personal choice. I have nothing but respect for members of the BGLO. Since having become a Groove I was asked by a Que in room full of Ques if Iíd be interested pledging Omega Psi Phi the room fell silent when I said I was a Groove. Yeah we went back and forth with a few jokes but it was all good.

Yes we step, stroll, chant, have line names, and numbers just like the BGLO. And anyone on the outside looking in would not be able to tell the difference. To that I say so what, I really donít give an ish. Personally I like to focus more on what we have in common than what makes us different. That being we love our community and try to make a difference. My god brother is an Alpha and we go back and forth some times but itís all in fun. One of my oldest friends is getting ready to pledge DST as a Graduate and Iím going to give her all the support I can.

Sorry for the long post but I get really annoyed at the back and forth and attacks on one anotherís orgs.
