I wore my golden anchor! No questions, though...

Wore my fab new opal badge today. Got asked about it by 4 students (which must mean they're blinded by the opals, or that they're slow - as I wear a badge at least twice a week)






I'll get it fixed someday when I come across a great estate jeweler, but for now, I love it as is

Yeah - it's confusing.

There is no progression, really. The Arc track is totally separate from the Crescent track.

Arcs are for any level of service to Alpha Gam.

Crescents are for International service - at the Director, Chair, or Council level.

Circle is only awarded for creative, distinct, unusual service - 25 or so have been awarded total.

I wore my new badge necklace. I picked up an emerald-with-diamond-points pin in yellow gold on an auction site. It's not very old, but it's shiny. For Christmas, my husband had it put on a badge holder and bought a rope chain for it.

Yes, I received it when Doctor D did and our badges are pretty much from the same era, but this is mine, with my Crescent.

The Arc with Diamonds has two diamonds, spaced on the arc so one is near each end of the arc itself.

The heart dangle is a Heart of Alpha Gamma Delta award that an alumnae chapter or club can get for a member they want to recognize locally. The Honors of Epsilon Pi require a petition and are awarded based on those petitions. The Heart of Alpha Gamma Delta is a less formal process.

you need the necklace holder so you don't have to deal with the dang clasp. Hope your flair goes away quickly!

Thank you I do too. My heart and soul went into earning that Crescent! Each sister who received a Crescent at Convention this summer is someone for whom I have much love and respect and have worked with for over a decade. It was a very special night that is in my top 10 Alpha Gam memories. It is a more rare and special honor and I got to share that night with sisters who are very special to me.

I was proud to sport my key to class and to see other girls who took the time to dress up and put on their badges. We had a Zeta, Gamma Phi, Alpha Gam and KKG (me!) wearing them in my 8 am Econ class where we were thrilled to learn our professor was a KD!

Did your prof have her Badge on?


I truly envy you ladies who are allowed to put their Badges on holders and make necklaces out of them. I would get a lot more use out of my Badge if I could do that!

Same here. I would love to be able to wear my badge as a pendant (I don't think it would work as a ring) and I think my NM pin would look great as either a pendant or a ring - but we are expressly forbidden to turn either badges or NM pins into any other type of jewelry.

Yup, I still have my NM pin. We had to buy them, but we got to keep them after initiation - at least that was the way my chapter did things. But it's gathering dust in my jewelry box. I haven't been a NM in *mumble* years, so if I want to wear official jewelry, it's gonna be my badge. I would sooo wear my NM pin as a pendant if I had the option, though.

She was wearing her KD badge! It was so cool to see how much the sorority meant to her even twenty years out of college and I think it gave us a great perspective that our Greek affiliations last beyond the four years of undergrad.

When I wore my badge to class, I found out that one of my graduate students is an advisor for the Alpha Sigma Alpha chapter on campus, and one of the other students is the mother of two Alpha Xi Deltas...one of whom is currently chapter president of their chapter. The professor teaching in the room next door is also a Gamma Phi Beta...but she didn't know it was International Badge Day.
